GIVE US A BREAK

The computer stood out immediately, not because Macs aren't THAT expensive (obviously they are), but more because the other two prices looked perfectly acceptable to me for what they were. But of course, it's the Trashley kindling that crosses me up by being even cheaper than the already cheap price posted for it.

3. "40 Years" prop... er, make that an XM portable satellite radio (w/docking kit, ear buds, & 3yr subscription) that's so small it nearly got lost against the background

It's even worse than it looks. She actually had the thing up around 1200 for a time, but let the Peanut Gallery talk her into going back down. Arrrrgh! I used to love this game, but now I outright dread it for reasons just like this. Something's got to be done to get players to stop lowballing themselves all the time in this game!

Okay, not only is this the last chance for Phillip to escape the buzzards, but that was a certain stripey-tailed creature I saw coming up Beverly Blvd. during the break. We need a bona fide winner, stat...

96.5 TIC-FM "Craig & Company" Semi-Memorial Showcases: Gary not-Craig (true) top winner, John not-Elliott (true) runner-up. (You'd have to be familiar with the radio scene in Hartford, CT to understand this, I fear. But on an episode like this, I have to make my own fun. Besides, at least one person who reads this is a fellow Connecticutter, so she might catch the reference.)

Oh, and just for the record, 96.5 TIC-FM is indeed the source of the numeric portion of my username on the GSN boards. I grew up with that station, back when it was called 96TIC-FM and it was a bona fide Top 40/CHR powerhouse.

1. This Showcase Will Turn You Inside-Out
  • Selection of Tommy Bahama reversible clothing
  • Napoleon Casual Furniture Roma outdoor seating group
  • SunBriteTV 32" outdoor LCD HDTV
  • 2011 Mazda Miata MX5 Sport convertible (2L 4c, ALB, convenience pkg)
Gary bids $22,000.
(My bid: $28,965)

2. Golden-Road.net was Right! This Show is Going Downhill Fast!
  • 4pc skiing package
  • Ski helmet w/Contour HD 5MP camcorder
  • Trip to Girdwood, AK (6n, Alyeska Resort)
    • Heliskiing adventure
    • $3,000 cash
  • Ski-Doo MXZ TNT snowmobile
John bids $19,900.
(My bid: $22,995)

Oh, and as regards that second Showcase title...

joke (jōk) n. Something said or done to excite laughter or amusement; a witticism, a jest; also, something that causes amusement, a ridiculous circumstance. (Source: Oxford English Dictionary)

The reason that definition has been quoted here is left as an exercise for the reader...

Alas, if John had just thought to pad his bid by $32 more he would've had a DSW on top of it, which would've really saved the day. As it is, though, it's just a good bid on a cheap Showcase to close out a disappointing day.
