Pat Sajak has seen a lot over the 33 years he has hosted Wheel of Fortune, but he couldn't get over the horsing around on Monday's episode.
The particular puzzle at the center of the story begins with the contestants on the syndicated game show guessing a 4-word answer to the question "What are you doing?"
After contestants Mitch and Lee successfully guess the first letter, putting a single "N" on the board in the first word, the duo has three seconds to guess the answer.
"Riding a brown horse," says one of the men, taking a stab in the dark.
His guess is met by laughter from the studio audience and Sajak.

Jackpot! And on national TV.
On Thursday night, Autumn Ernhard, 30, became the second person in the 30-year history of Wheel of Fortune to spin right and guess right – and end up with $1 million.
"I am in complete and utter shock," the animal pharmaceuticals sales representative from Laguna Niguel, Ca., told ABC News. "I'm shaking. I came here today because I love the game, I wanted to have some fun and solve some puzzles – I feel like I'm in a dream!"
In the excitement that follows her win, it sounds like she was able to solve the two-word puzzle – with only a G, an R and two Ts to go on – as "Tough Workout," "Because I work out," she said.

Ever wonder why Pat Sajak has unending enthusiasm toward the purchase of a vowel?
Turns out, margaritas have something to do with it.
The host of the long-running game show Wheel of Fortune says that back in the day, he and Vanna White occasionally had a drink – or six – while working on the show.
When asked by Dan Le Batard of Dan Le Batard Is Highly Questionable, which airs on ESPN 2, if he ever hosted the show while intoxicated, Sajak, 65, came clean.
