Have you ever walked into a diner, sat in a pleather booth, rested your plastic-covered menu on the formica table top and wondered how in the heck they came up with the names of their dishes? What is a “Moon Over My Hammy” and what does it have to do with breakfast? These questions have stumped diner-goers for generations until now. On Friday’s episode of Bunk, comedian contestants Tom Lennon, Nicole Parker, and Chris Gethard were asked to play a lightning fast round of “Lingo It.” In that game the comic minds were asked to give classic diner dishes some fancy new names. Based on the results, it’s clear that Moons over My Hammy isn’t nearly as weird as it could be. Also, Tom Lennon shows us how to own a mistake like a professional.
