From Wikipedia: Much of the tension of the show revolved around whether any of the contestants, in pre-contest conversation with Groucho, would say the "secret word", a common word seemingly selected at random and revealed to the audience at the show's outset. If a contestant uttered the word, a toy duck
made to resemble Groucho with a mustache, eyeglasses
and with a cigar
in its bill, would descend from the ceiling to bring the contestant-pair $100.
Instead of a duck, Persi & Alley will descend with 700 points.
Starting April Fool's Day, KatKwery, not KatKwiz will be a take-off on this old show. If you mention the secret word in KatKwery, you get 700 points. The word will be directly related to the KatKwiz of the day. KatKwiz of course. As an example, today's secret word could have been breakaway
. Answering today's KatKwery could easily result in somebody using the secret word. If nobody likes this, we will try something else for the extra 700 points but KatKwiz will never
change its format. The cats are just trying to add some fun and more points to win after the correct KatKwiz question is answered.
And, give a second chance!
It also gives a chance for points to those that cannot find the KatKwiz answer for the day. All they have to do is answer the KatKwery question and they could well have the secret word in their answer because the questions will be designed for just that!
