906 viewsBob was in the middle of explaining the rules to 'Barker's Bargain Bar' when he noticed that the neon sign was missing. He joked that he just couldn't go on and then sat down on the green border of the big door, breaking a bulb! He then joked that he felt like he was on 'Truth or Consequences!' It's assumed that the neon sign was being repaired, but its absence was never explained.
