'Family Feud' Swallow Question Makes Steve Harvey Fear Future Of Show (VIDEO)

"Magen, tell me something you put in your mouth but don't swallow." Before the question left "Family Feud" host Steve Harvey's lips, he knew he had stumbled into sticky territory.

After innocuously getting the answer "gum" during the initial round, Harvey walked over to the Forsythe team and posed the same question. But Magen, the girl he asked (and a pastor's wife to boot), gave him an incredulous look that summed up what most viewers were likely thinking (assuming that, like us, most viewers have the sense of humor of a 12-year-old boy).

Harvey immediately spirals into a half tirade/half lecture about how such a question -- and such an answer -- could potentially harm the squeaky-clean legacy that "Family Feud" has enjoyed for decades.

How does Magen eventually answer? Does she tiptoe around the question? Is "Family Feud" off the air after an advertiser revolt against swallowing? You may be surprised.
