Spring has spring in the boxes to be covered up, much to our snowman's regret...

$23,120 seems to pop off the board at me, possibly falsely...

Hot tub

The only price that makes any sense at all to me is $5,917, and that seems way too low. On the other hand, the next highest price would be $7,402, and that seems way too high. Which way will the coin bounce this time?

After lingering on $7,402, Lisa doesn't just push the blocks to $5,917, she shoves them there. "With AUTHORITY, I might add!" (™ & © V. K. McMahon)

WHAAAAAAAAAAAAAAT?!!?

Where'd that come from!? Hot tubs aren't that much of a RNG usually.

Don't tell me that "nice easy win" on Safe Crackers is gonna end up being the highlight of the day...

She called for the first digit after it became patently obvious, thanks to that 9, what it had to be.

Congratulations, you just made this already-evil game several orders of magnitude harder than even it had to be. Might as well throw darts at the board blindfolded now...

Yes, even though the jeans (by design) had more holes in them than the plot of many summer blockbusters. In a world this crazy, you gotta laugh, right? 8^)

Most Expen$ive:

  2. Kymco Mongoose 300 ATV (RR)

It figures that it would be the one I thought was least likely in this case. But hey, at this point I'll take the win!

It's Sarah's last chance to escape banishment, something that's actually become a minor rarity of late around here...

  1. Well, speak of the devil. Yesterday, I talked about someone named Anita Sarkeesian...and today, we have Sarah Malone, who looks like her! Same brown hair, same hairstyle, similar plaid shirt (as seen on Tropes vs. Women in Video Games, anyway)... But would Anita make the same stupid bid on Wusthof knives?

    This whole episode was packed with dumbasses today, as if Mike Richards was trying to fill a quota of them! In addition to those bad bids on those knives...
    * What part of "THE DIGITS DON'T REPEAT, DAMN IT!!!" could Norland not understand!?!
    * Brian was awfully slow to learn how to play Cover Up...
    * As was Lisa on Push Over!
    * Someone seriously asked for the first digit for free in Hack the Dreck!?! "Why would you do this?", indeed!

    1. You think the folks at Game Show Garbage might take this for their Dumb Answer of the Week award?
