    Yep. The rule is that your answer has to be a plausible pronunciation of the answer as it's spelled. Ironically, if it were spelled "gangster," he probably would have been OK to pronounce it "gangsta," since so many accents drop a final -r, but you can't add an -r that isn't there in the spelling.

    I remember a Wheel of Fortune episode where the person answered "Frankly my dear, I don't give a darn." Wrong!
