Don't pay any mind, we'll just sit here for a few hours and *wait* for your bid.

Now I'll await my turn.

A lot of you are probably wishing I hadn't started CSS.

Ever heard that 2+2=5? I have a simple solution: 2+2=5-1.

Problem solved.

Pardon my language, but I do believe we all need to calm the f*** down.

Absolutely! Just a little teasing is all.  ;)

And it's my bid as well. A prime position here...what to do...I'll go with $851. That way if I'm wrong I'll at least get 3rd spot for IUFB 3.

$851, please.

Security, can we escort this hooligan tpir04 out for breaching The Price is Right protocol? You donít just make fun of someoneís mistake just to one-up them, y'know. Tsk tsk tsk!  :P

(At work yet again, so the next pricing game will be announced in the evening. :-) )
Stop the madness.

CR can be ruthless sometimes, Shock. (You should know; you've been there!) ;)

All of a sudden, loud beeping noises come from the yellow podium, and tpir04ís bid doesnít show up on it!

Oh, Iím so sorry! It looks like the podium is refusing to accept your bid! What a shame... :P

...Whatís that? We have to accept his bid regardless of the technology? overdramatically OK, fine... :P

(I'm sorry to say it, but I'm fairly exhausted right now, and my posts today were on my phone. I'll try to finish my post tonight, but it may be up tomorrow morning, unfortunately. The good news is, that day is my day off, so the game should move a lot quicker tomorrow. I appreciate your patience.  :-) )

It's all good, buddy.  If your day was anything like mine, I completely understand. :)

to PayingTheRent Hey, I mean, we could have just found where you live, taken your ride, and updated it, Xzibit 'Pimp My Ride' style. Feel free to double check after the show and if you have proof, we'll give it to you free of charge.  :-D

The audience laughs, and I suddenly notice a sign in the audience.

PETA: People Eati-

I cover my mouth and try to control my laughter.

Oh... oh, man. That's a good one! Can't believe I didn't notice that earlier, but man... that's great. That's just great.  :-D

I take a deep breath to recover.

In any case, all of the bids and tpir04's written bid are done, so let's lock them all in.  :-)

JayC      PayingTheRent      tpir04      123123123
$720                $850                    $851               $555

...Boy, oh, boy; PayingTheRent, you've had it rough in Contestant's Row. You've been one-upped twice, and the first time, the one who one-upped you got on stage! Do we offer financial compensation for Smeghead gambits like this? ...No? That's a shame.  :P

And you know what the crazy part of all of this is?

I take the pricing card out of the folder.

...It worked. The sewing machine is $1,247! tpir04, time to play the next pricing game!  :-)

The bell dings as tpir04 makes his way on stage and runs up to the next flight of carpeted, relatively flat stairs before jumping up next to me!

Welcome to the show! Someone's excited!

I extend my hand, only for tpir04 to shake it while jumping up and down, causing me to lightly chuckle.

Y'know, I think that seems like the behavior of someone who signed up for this show thrice. Call me crazy.  :-D

But in any case, let's see what's behind the turntable... ooooh, it looks like a set piece! I can almost see it! It's...



It's the Bonus Game! Not only is this a classic, but it's very winnable as well! You're a lucky man, for certain.  :-D

So, here are the rules. You see this gorgeous, classic set piece? There are four asterisks, and behind each asterisk, there is an item with a corresponding price below it. That price is wrong, so I'm going to ask you if the correct price of that prize is higher or lower than the price that goes along with it. Guess correctly, and you'll win that prize and that panel.

And guess what? Under one of the four panels is a bonus. Y'know, like the bonuses some executives get for corrupt business tactics. But I'm sure that's not relevant... nah, I kid, I kid.  :-D

In any case, George: show tpir04 what that bonus is!

The big doors open to reveal...

George: It's a new laundry room!

Manuela walks up to the back to back washer and dryer before George continues...



First, from Speed Queen, this 27" Commercial Front Loaded Washer comes complete with a 4-compartment dispenser, Quantum touch screen controls, 1,200 RPM, 4 cycles, balancing technology, high capacity meter case, stainless steel tub, and 3.42 cubic feet of capacity!



And, to match it; also from Speed Queen, it's a dryer! This 27" Commercial Gas Dryer features 7 cubic feet of capacity, reversible door, upfront lint filter, 5 temperature selections, durable galvanized steel cylinder and high efficiency exhaust blower!

Manuela then places her hand above her head to slightly pan up to...

And to complete your new indoor laundromat: it's a new TV!



From Sony, this 77" OLED A9G Master Class 2160p 4K UHD TV with HDR features Pixel Contrast Booster Technology, Acoustic Surface Audio+, Android with Google Assist built-in, an ultra-thin design, and hidden speakers! It's a bonus worth $10,991!

The audience applauds!

Wow, that's a nice bonus! You won't have to go to a laundromat ever again! ...Maybe.  :P

In any case, let's reveal the first prize...

*      TYPEWRITER
            $115
*

*

*

A... typewriter? OK, I guess. George, tell us about the typewriter.  :-)

Devin pushes a podium with...



This 14 pound Royal Scriptor II 13 Portable Electronic Typewriter features an LCD display, spell check system and memory storage capacity, impression control, and relocation features!

I didn't even know they still made typewriters! Guess there's still an audience for 'em.  :P

So, tpir04, the typewriter is not $115. So, my question for you is: is the correct price higher or lower?
Stop the madness.

First of all, someone is getting one-upíd by me next go-around. :-x

Second, are those...coin slots on the washer and dryer?

This is excellent.

These live-action remakes are always modernizing things
"It's the greatest challenge in the world to invent a new game. For every one you see, every concept that is ultimately refined and developed, a dozen are worked on and not worked on, or almost worked on, or dropped because they don't read any more. We test and hammer and test and hammer...

When you finally get it down so that it looks very very simple, that one has had the most complicated amount of work." -Mark Goodson

They're perfect for the parent who wants to send a message to their kids that they can't just bring home a bunch of dirty laundry from college!

This hits WAY too close to home for me.  :-)

Anyways, while I'm already here...
