As Door #3 disgorges the Prize Patrol with their fourth check of the week, I'm left to marvel at how easy this particular setup was for even the Joe and Jane Plinkos of the world. Even if you subscribed to the logical absurdity that "the bigger the size, the higher the price," you could have won this with one eye tied behind your back.

Pity it probably won't last...

Verneece is almost literally from just down the street -- she lives on Pekoe and Fairfax, which Drew explains is about a twenty-minute walk to TVC if the lights are against you. ^^; (Of course, nobody walks in LA...)

Shouldn't have offered to "kiss her on the mouth" the way you did there, Phillip... Maybe Mimi might've fallen for that, but not the MSEL...

NOT AGAIN

Wow. All I can say is, thank whatever you want to thank for the Prize Patrol. Without thim this day would be a near-total disaster.

Do you have any idea how hard it is to come up with a different Leftover Island/buzzard gag here every day? Trust me, it's not as easy as it may seem to you who are reading this.

That's right, folks -- all of today's IUFBs were under $1,000 (total value: $4,538). Someone check the calendar and make sure this is 2013 and not 1978.

And as if things weren't looking bleak enough, Paula gets stuck with ½ Off, a game not noted lately for its generosity:
