Weekly Pricing Show - Week 2
« on: August 05, 2016, 11:36:40 AM »
What's that, 123123123? Can't carry on?

...but the show...must go on.





Randy West, we need something else for these folks to bid on!





Coming around the turntable, it's a fashionable new poker and dining set!


The BBO Nighthawk poker and dining table set is sure to fuel your gambling addictions and appetites all in one, convenient package! The set includes a poker table with an exclusive removable playing surface, matching dining top and four chairs! The solid oak construction of this fine piece of craftsmanship will make this a fine addition to your dining room or illegal gambling hall!


And we will award that poker table to the one of you who bids nearest to the actual retail price without going over.


(See 123123123's show for rules.  We'll play our pricing game either Monday night or Tuesday, so place your bids!)

It feels like only a week ago I was offering a swing set, and now I'm on the other side. :-)

$2,795 please

ding ding ding ding ding ding ding


And the actual...


clang clang clang clang clang clang clang


Oh, look out! That sound means one of you is exactly right! And whoever it is will receive a $500 bonus!


The actual retail price of that poker table is...


$2,250


Archviler, you are the winner! Come join me up here on stage!


(Archviler hurries onto the stage, seems genuinely excited)


Arch, here's your $500. You've got yourself a little gambling money there to go with that poker table, and you have a chance to win even more! Randy, tell him how much he can win!






$16,000!


That's right, Arch! You can win up to $16,000 playing It's in the Bag, and I bet you know how to play. Randy, please tell us about these grocery items!




Pringles super stack original potato crisps are the preferred snack for those intolerant of chips that aren't neatly aligned in an easy-to-open canister. Pringles -- look for the canister with the creepy, porn 'stache guy's face on the label.




Purina Cat Chow Indoor features an improved taste your cat probably won't even notice because it's a cat. Its 25 essential vitamins and minerals will make you feel like you're properly caring for your feline companion, but your cat would probably be just as well off with a less expensive, generic brand.




Citrucel Orange Smart Fiber Powder, because we have an older demographic we'd rather pretend doesn't exist but can't completely ignore because they still represent the majority of our audience. Use as directed.




A 40 ounce can of Bruce's Yams. Bruce's Yams use only the sweet and tender heart of the yam -- that's why they're so delicious. America's number one selling yams are Bruce's Yams. Bruce's: America's Sweetheart.





Tylenol PM 100 count extra strength caplets temporarily relieves minor aches and pains, such as headaches brought on from dealing with trolls on an internet forum and muscle aches resulting from hours upon hours of sitting in a chair stalking people on social media. Tylenol PM, use as directed.




Was that Wendy's chili the guy at the drive thru just handed you too hot, and you dropped it on your brand new khaki pants? Well, good luck with getting that out. But for minor stains that can be cleaned up on the fly, there's Tide To Go pens!


Now, Arch, I want you to take a good look at those grocery products.


| CHIPS | CAT FOOD | LAXATIVE | YAMS | PAIN RELIEVER | STAIN REMOVER |


Tell me which you believe is $1.59, which is $4.89, $11.99, $5.99, and $9.99 -- in that order.

I completely agree, except I would have went with the yams instead of the Pringles.

I personally have a feeling the laxatives are $11.99 with Tylenol being $9.99. The rest seems fine though.

Some members of the audience seem to disagree with your decision. Let's see if you're right.

For $1,000, do we have Pringles?




ding


Yes, we do!

Arch, you have $1,000. If you want, you can walk right out the doors of our studio $1,000 richer and call it a day. Or... You can keep going and try to double your money to $2,000. However, if you're wrong, you lose the $1,000, and the game will end.

What would you like to do?

I could easily be wrong here, but you know what? I'm going to keep going until I win or crash out.

(I'm not sure about the stain remover at all, so it's an educated guess at best. Plus I probably used all my luck up with that perfect bid.)

You're going for it, and I can't say I blame you.

For $2,000, let us see the stain remover!



buzz, losing horns


Oh, Arch. That hurts, man. Damn.

Let's see where the other items were...





Well, you had the cat food and the stain remover mixed up, as well as the laxative and the pain reliever. So, if it's any consolation, the Pringles were the only thing you had right. Probably doesn't make it suck much less, though.

Enjoy your poker table and the $500!

Folks, hopefully we'll have another pricing game coming up!
