April 5 (UPI) -- A Wheel of Fortune contestant failed to solve the puzzle but succeeded in gaining a viral following with an unusual guess: "Popsicle Bike."

The category for the puzzle on Tuesday night's episode of the popular game show was "living things" and contestant couple Larry and Melinda rang their buzzer to solve when the board read, "_O_EYS_CK_E B_S_."


Melinda offered up her best guess: "Popsicle Bike."

"Uh, no," was the response from host Pat Sajak.

The puzzle's answer was "HONEYSUCKLE BUSH."

Twitter users who witnessed the flub instantly drew comparisons to an episode two weeks ago, when a contestant named Kevin tried to solve a puzzle with only one letter remaining, "A STREETCAR NA_ED DESIRE."

Kevin's guess, "A Streetcar Naked Desire," failed to earn him any money, but resulted in viral fame and an appearance on Ellen.
