Countdown spelled out a rude Irish slang word on the show this week
Before the watershed and all...
No matter how mature you claim to be, the occasional, unintentional rude word can set a person off.
If you've ever watched Countdown, you'll know it can throw up some gold. Who could forget this classic after all?
In TV, like in any job, sometimes you have to work with a**holes. Best thing to do, just keep smiling 😜 pic.twitter.com/byhqzyoFck

On Thursday this week, there was another moment similar to these, when the game threw up a commonly used Irish slang word that's often insulting.

Have a look at the segment below and take notice Susie's explanation of the word.
A “stupid, foolish or incompetent person" according to the definition.
The Channel 4 social media manager even felt the need to address the word.
