Best first pass in Switcheroo in a long time! I think I even know which two are wrong (the tea pot and the utensils)...

SHOCKER OF THE CENTURY!!!

...

I don't believe what I just saw. In a game that's already several different kinds of evil, that has to rate as one of the most evil prices it's ever seen. And it's won! Amazing move by Scott!

It's not as bad as Temptation (prior to a few weeks ago) or Golden Road, but it's still been a good long time since we last saw Switcheroo won; you have to go back almost two years, to 5 April 2010. Before this, Switchy's gone 0-14 since that day. Just to put this in perspective a bit.

Oh, and I officially have no clue what I'm talking about anymore. ;^)

There were only two logical arrangements, since the four-digit price was obvious -- and it wasn't very likely that beverage cooler was only $20, leaving this as the only real option left. As long as you kept your head and didn't second-guess yourself, this was cake.
