Awww man, and I thought the new host was gonna be Rich or Chuck (Dukas).  Still, I think that yours truly would make a GRRR-eat host!  :-D

I don't know why a Bob Barker robot needed to be created.  Everyone knows that Bob has been dead since '87.  He's been coming out on strings for the last 20 years!  Although, maybe Dane Cook isn't the most trustworthy source.

Great post Scott!  Happy April Fools everybody!

Scott, that was awesome.  I challenge anyone to come up with a better...actually, no, I don't.  There's no point ruining the year's one good joke with 20 extra crappy ones.

Seriously, that made my night.

You should all be glad this isn't Invision.

Damn! I was going to make that joke--see what I get for lurking around so seldom?

Great job MSTieScott. I love the firsthand accounts of a TPIR page who is also a LFAT, even if some of them are fool's gags.

If it'll only last about 3500 episodes, will it just suddenly stop working one day, or will it just get worse and worse with time...

BarkerTron 3500:  Now, drop your first Plinko chip, and hope it lands in the $10,000 slot!
Molly*:  Plinko chip?  I thougt this was Clock Game.
BarkerTron 3500:  But if you come within $250 or less of the actual retail price of your own showcase, we can't start the rangefinder again for seven $1 bills, and if you have even $96, but you only have one more try to find the back of the car.
Molly:  ...can I leave?

*Cause I'm sure heels wants to know, she's not hot.  And doesn't even really exist, for that matter.

Here's another good one, loosely inspired by the Shell Game Incident:

BarkerTron 3500:  Now just a moment...do you mean to tell me, that after picking that up, and seeing that there's no ball under there, you're gonna put a chip beside that shell?

Roger:  I didn't mean to do that...

BarkerTron:  That's DUMB!  What you did hasn't happened since 1925, I remember it well.  You ruined my show!  You ruined my game!  However, there is a solution to this unique problem...I'm gonna GIVE you the prize.  Get off my stage!

I love it, Scott. :lol:

In fact, I only have one problem with it... IT'S NOT TRUE, sadly. That really would solve all our problems.
