Mother's Day is this Sunday, so we're celebrating in the BBS by having contestants play with their mothers, as has become an annual tradition in the Post-Barker Era.

As usual with this gimmick, pairs are listed with mothers first, because it's their holiday after all. ^^;

SEE?

Arguably the most random digit in any car price with only a 1:5 chance of getting it right (and no second chances if you get it wrong)? See, this is why it's a better strategy to intentionally bobble one of the first two numbers, which are usually dead giveaways, just so you're always guaranteed a third chance even if your second one goes by the boards. It's all about maximizing your turns at the board in this game.

Anyway, moving on...

Grand Game:
  • Snuggle fabric softener sheets (80 ct)
  • Brookside Dark Chocolate Crunchy Clusters snack (5 oz)
  • Olay exfoliating body wash (23.6 fl oz)
  • Campbell's Home Style chicken noodle soup (18.6 oz)
  • Post Raisin Bran cereal (25 oz)
  • Gillette Venus Embrace womens' razor kit (1 razor/1 cartridge)

Almost positive the razor is to be avoided like the plague. Possibly also the cereal simply because of the box size, but the body wash is also suspect. Let's see how it plays out.

Close, but not quite. That pretty much sews up that it's the body wash then. At least to my way of thinking.

Go on...
Candy

WIN!
(Body wash: $8.49; Razor: $7.99)

The softener was more than I anticipated. Again, though, not complaining about this result!

Off to the magical land of Door #2 to wrap up this rather successful (if bizarre at times) week with Most Expen$ive:
  1. 24" built-in wine cooler (Plessers.com; GOS)
  2. Kate Spade designer handbags (RR)
  3. LG 55" 3D LED Smart 4K HDTV w/2 pairs of glasses (JO)

Could be any of the three, honestly... Kate Spade is the cheapo brand for accessories, but five handbags might add up significantly.

THAT is Showcase One? Wow.

Argh! What a horrible way to wind up what's been, on the whole, a fantastic week of winning, as the stats post will bear out shortly. Even today wasn't so bad you'll want to throw it out with the bathwater, unless you're just allergic to DOBs in general or you want to stir something up. (Still, that Mercedes does hurt, I won't lie...)

See you back here on Monday to see if we can't do better...
