Imponderable #93: Game Shows

10 May

May 10, 2013

We’re going in a different direction with The Imponderable this week. I’m bringing you a pair of ridiculous game show clips.

The first clip is from The Price is Right and features a contestant making a bid that even Bob Barker won’t accept and gives him a do-over. In the second, semi-non-celeibrity-ish person Kelly Pickler.


Just as an aside, I am sure that somewhere in the country, a morning zoo show is using the clip of Bob Barker announcing “Our top winner in the showcase is Gay!” in a funny yet highly inappropriate manner which Mr. Blog finds totally offensive and hysterical.



Can she be that stupid?
The question is, well  no, sorry, not Imponderable, but likely yes.

    First of all, how old is Bob Barker?
    Second, I wonder if Jose works on a nuclear submarine.
    Third–That woman and the geography test (remember, geography is my strong point) is militantly dumb. Even though she thinks Europe is a country, I bet she has all sorts of STRONG opinions on the economy, foreign policy, health care, gun control, etc.

      Bob Barker, or as I call him The American Akira Takarada, is 89. I say that if you kicked out Drew Carey and brought back Bob Barker the show would improve tenfold.

      Kelly Pickler I’m sure likes to talk a lot, I think you have that right.

      BTW- how’s your book doing?

        Thanks for asking about the book. It’s moving along slowly–hard to get publicity and reviews which seems to be the best way to generate interest. So spread the word! Thanks.

          You can feel free to do a guest post / plug if you like. Happy to help.

            Thanks–I really appreciate that. How would we work that? Do I just send you a blurb or what would make most sense? Thanks!

    I know one of Kelly Pickler’s uncles. He is a smart, hilarious man. Too bad the same can’t be said of his neice.

      To be fair, she seems like she’d be pretty fun to hang with too.
      To paraphrase Empire Strikes Back
      Han Solo: [baiting him] Still, she’s got a lot of spirit. I don’t know, whaddya think? You think a princess and a guy like Mr. Blog…
      Luke: [quickly] No.
