TPiRecap: 31 January 2014


[CBS network announcer voice]

Because the Sup -- er, the Big Game We're Not Allowed To Name For Free Anymore -- is airing on another network this year, The Price is Right Football Spectacular will not be seen at this time. In its place we now present the following standard episode of The Price is Right.

Let's do this...

"The Evolution of Man" is today's gag, culminating in the apex of human development... our own intrepid host, of course, doing a "Superman" pose. It falls to Lori, however, to determine if there is any "intelligent design" in the price of that Focus.

And that's the only time I'll ever make light of that particular situation. ;^)

Not looking too bad here. It's a straight-up Big Deal situation for the Last Chance Saloon. Just pick Door #1, #2, or #3... or 1, 6, or 7 depending on your perspective. Behind one is a car, behind the others are Zonks. What would you do?:

...Hopefully you didn't do that. But with the way prices have been going lately, even my old rule of thumb regarding the tens digit -- it's always the lowest number in that column, unless there's a 0 in there -- couldn't be relied upon this time. This despite its vindication here.

Moving right along...

  2. Foosball table (AL)
  3. Restoration Hardware "WWII bomber" polished aluminium desk w/chair (RR)
  4. Prada his & hers designer leather shoes (RR)

I feel like it's either the shoes or the computer...

Just when you probably thought you'd never see another winner in this game... and what do you know, my hunch was right. (If it came down to the computer or the shoes, I would've stayed away from the shoes.) Nicely done, Christine!

You gotta love it when a game like this ends up aced!

Sean and Mark have seats reserved for them on the Leftover Island Express, but one of them can still rebook their own flight elsewhere... and Sean does have the advantage. What will come of this?
