What are the names of the seven dwarfs from ‘Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs’? Doc, Grumpy, Happy, Sleepy, Bashful, Sneezy, and Dopey.
I think most Americans are well acquainted with the fairy tale, but reciting the dwarfs’ names by memory, however, might be a little trickier for everybody to do.
But what if all seven dwarfs’ names were listed in a row for you to see, each missing only a letter or two? That should be easy enough that you should still be able to recite them all, right?
Well, apparently not easy enough for everybody. A woman on the Wheel of Fortune game show elected to solve a puzzle from the category “Characters” in which the answer was the name of the seven dwarfs. She botched the name “Sneezy” with “Sneeky.”
Two things concern me about this. First, host Pat Sajak told her before she began her answer, “Carefully, go ahead.” But that didn’t stop the woman from nervously rushing through it. Secondly, the word “sneaky” is spelled with an A, not with two E’s, which was displayed on the game board.
It’s hard to say how I’d react if I were nervous and on TV, but I have a hard time believing I’d botch that one.
