It goes something like this..
A panel of contestants stand behind the good old game show horseshoe podiums under the bright studio lights.
The host at random selects a modern day subject (no altruism or cynicism here) it's the first to hit the buzzer to answer and return with their short pithy
instructive saying..eg:(topic) "Mass ratio" 1-2-3-4-Bzzzzzzz..
(contestant) "Its easier for a camel to pass through the eye of a needle if its been through a blender first" quote unquote =10 points (topic) "Hallucinations" 3-4-5-6 "must hurry you now" Bzzzzzzz(contestant) "Cogito cogito ergo cogito sum" quote unquote. =10 points(topic)"Cutlery"...Bzzz..Bzzzz (contestant) "If you come to a fork in the road take it" more points and so on..
Subjects could include modern day warfare,automotive assembly,pizza,Ken and Barbie,sex,astrophysics,pets etc..etc.
The end result after half an hour is a bunch of contestants being helped off the podium by a large number of psychiatrists supporting them as they (contestants) drag their craniums along the gameshow floor, with the winner a proud owner of a 2 day pass to the Plato and Wittgenstein theme park and $1500 in gift vouchers(there's a thought).
I'm sure there must be thousands of aphorism's to play with to modern society lifestyle. Bzzzzzzzzzz.."I don't even butter my bread;i consider that cooking"..."mmm"..dribble .. what was the topic again?"..."croissant?".dribble
aphorism game show

||Where did it go? What happened?
||Its daddy took it out to a quiet place in the woods.
||Where there's a will, there's a way!
There might be 'ways' [skinflaps]...
It might cost you...
Are you willing to pay...?
||I am incredibly confused right now.
It's ok I'm getting used to the feeling here at the H.B. Just thought I'd share that in case someone wants to clue me in
||<tourguide> [-2fry], you are now standing in a place of historical significance to the Halfbakery. However, this is not the original place, and this marker does not give any facts about it. I will say, though, that there is a broken piece of stone over in yonder corner which says, "Don't start that again!" and it may (this is only speculation) be in the moderator's handwriting. </tourguide>
