According to Country Living, the TV personality couldn't seem to keep it together when a prompt about "squirrels and nuts" came up during the faceoff between the Wathen and Burnley families.

After laughing to himself for a few seconds, Steve read out the words in his notecards to the contestants:

"Name something you might see a squirrel at the park doing with its nuts."

While the Wathen got off to a solid start with answers like "eating them" and "playing with them," the Burnley's first guess of "searching for them" didn't score them any points.

"Family Feud" once again returned to TV in 1999 and has been on-air ever since then, with Steve Harvey taking over as its host in 2010.

While some viewers pointed out that the prompt had been used before on the gameshow, Good Housekeeping recalled another hilarious moment from Steve.

The site stated that during the Rueger family's appearance on the show, a prompt about what a blindfolded married man could touch to identify his wife still. 

It didn't take long before the Ruegers scored several points with answers like "breasts," "lips," "feet," and "hair." With only one solution left on the board, Kyle, whose turn it to guess correctly, said:

"Well, you know Steve, I've got to be respectful of my father-in-law who is in the crowd tonight, but I'm going to have to go with her lady parts, Steve."

That response was too much for Steve as he threw up his cards while the contestants and crowd cheered from their seats.

While many have continued to enjoy the thrills from the show, Southern Living recounted that "Family Feud" became a huge hit when it first aired in 1976.

However, the series was canceled with its last episode airing in June 1985, after a nine-year run. Luckily for viewers of the series, it was relaunched by CBS in 1988, and it ran again until 1993.
