The Price is Right – The prize is wrong

That pretty much summed up my reaction as I changed the channel and ran across The Price Is Right this morning. I stopped right there because I saw a woman bidding on a showcase where the prizes included a trip to New Orleans and a speedboat.

“That’s right, Bob… it’s a 24 night, 25 day stay in the lovely Superdoooome!”

Lucky for her, she overbid by $500.

You’d think CBS would have pulled that particular episode, which was probably tapes a month or two ago, prior to airing. I have a feeling that somebody over at CBS in programming is being kerplunked naked down the Plinko board over this one.

Note: My first book, “‘Because That’s the Way God Decided to Do It!’ – A conservative father fields confusing questions from his confused kids about a confusing world – Inadequate explanations of politics, parenting, economics, war, technology, and the future of the human race” is now available in paperback or as a downloadable Ebook.

I’ve set up a page containing short samples from each chapter. Click here for chapter samples.
