TPiRecap: 25 November 2013

As we noted in this space on Friday, this is an abbreviated week of three episodes due to the Thanksgiving holiday here in the USA. There will also be only two new episodes next week (one of which is a make-good from earlier this month), after which things get back to normal -- with one big exception, as you may have heard -- the week of 9 December.

In the meantime, let's make the magic happen...

Well, so much for my vain hope... It's In the Bag comes along to send our hopes for a perfect first half straight to the bottom of the ocean:

  • Duncan Hines Comstock apple pie filling & topping
  • Gold Bond Ultimate Men's Essentials lotion
  • Beech-Nut baby food
  • V8 vegetable juice (6-pack)
  • Mrs. T's potato & cheddar pierogies
  • The Ubiquitous Francesco Rinaldi pasta sauce

Hmm... this is actually fairly easy, by Baggy standards. Obviously the baby food goes in the cheap bag and the lotion in the expensive one; we see that spaghetti sauce every day, it seems (all together now... two twenty-nine), which leaves the V8 to be $5.49 and the pierogies at $3.49. (There is no way I'm buying that can of pie filling to be any more than two bucks, or three at most.)

Let's see what Daniel does with this...

It's always easier at home, isn't it? I don't have the pressure of real money on the line, we don't have 150 people screaming suggestions in our ear when we play along from the comforts of our dens, living rooms, bedrooms, whatever. I always have to remind myself of that fact. Still, one would think that Francesco Rinaldi has been featured enough on the show in recent months that the $2.29 price should be picked up on by now. It's seriously getting to be to the current regime what Hot Pockets were to the Roger Dobkowitz era.
