A contestant on "Wheel of Fortune" missed out on an easy $7,100 Monday after botching his pronunciation of the word "Flamenco."

But rather than saying "flamenco," the man said "flamingo" – an exotic pink bird – sending him into a state of disbelief after the show host Pat Sajak buzzed him for a wrong answer. Jonny's botched pronunciation meant that his opponent, Ashley, had an easy walk and will be enjoying some of the Jonny's money somewhere in the sunny parts of Europe.

There are items about the gaffe in The New York Times, on TV news and entertainment websites, and rap message boards.
