Switch?:
  1. Something to get you dirty: Can-Am DS90X ATV (AL)
  2. Something to get you clean: Electrolux washer & dryer (RR)

Rarely can I figure out what has to be done from just the first price tag being visible. But I certainly can do it here. -98 has to go on the washer/dryer.

I swear, I'm gonna start hiring people to hand out pamphlets during the cattle call that say "NO ONE-BID PRIZE IS EVER LESS THAN FIVE HUNDRED DOLLARS"...

Punch-a-Bunch, featuring Drew's Home Alone parody on the $25K bill:

Win $2,500

Once again, I have to stress: The "partial" win condition in Punchy is a bailout. If you go on to the last slip, and that last slip is anything but $25K or $10K, it counts as a loss. Even so, $2,500 isn't bad at all as a consolation prize.

You know, George sounded kinda tinny when doing this Come On Down, and it doesn't sound much better when he reads the next IUFB... wonder what happened.

WTF!?


...I just thought of an addendum to my pamphlets. "NEVER LESS THAN FIVE HUNDRED, NOR MORE THAN FOUR THOUSAND DOLLARS!"

Now....or Then will now put its perfect record on the line for this:
Ashley bedroom group (Comfortaire Q) & Samsung 32" LED Smart HDTV ($9,408; RR)

  • Allegra allergy relief (15 tablets) ***ANACHRONISM ALERT***
  • Nakano seasoned rice vinegar
  • Snuggle fabric softener (40 sheets)
  • Walgreens Ology all-purpose cleaner ***ANACHRONISM ALERT***
  • Smucker's strawberry syrup
  • Advil Liqui-Gels pain relief

Two things on the table that didn't exist in the THEN period. (In the Allegra's case, it may have been around in '93, but certainly not as an OTC drug.) Forced win, anyone?

Then: Apr. 1993
