The Price Is Wrong, Bitch!

December 19, 2008

Recently, someone got the EXACT showcase showdown price correct on The Price Is Right. This is nearly impossible, yet someone did it.

So you would think host Drew Carey would go nuts when someone actually got the exact price. Or at least be excited. Or at least show SOME emotion.

Nope.

Carey announces the price as though he’s reading an obituary.

Watch Carey’s reaction when this guy guesses the exact price.

I stopped watching this show years ago, but clearly it has gone downhill since Bob Barker left. Drew Carey should be fired for the worst hosting job I have ever seen.

Seriously, how could you go wrong with this guy?

Just Do It

If you have HBO, watch Summer Heights High. It is a mockumentary styled show (like The Office), and takes place in Australia. It is by far one of the funniest shows I’ve seen in a while.

Also, if you live near a movie theater that happens to be playing it, go see Slumdog Millionaire. It was one of the best movies I’ve seen in a very long time, and will certainly be nominated for multiple Academy Awards (most likely best screenplay). It is actually worth the $11 dollars it costs to see a movie in NY.

Tickle Me Elmo

I was walking around NYC this past weekend, when I stumbled upon one of the funniest scenarios I’ve ever seen.

The picture above is of a guy in an Elmo costume, taking a picture with a mom and her two kids.

However, I took this picture about 30 minutes after I saw Elmo getting questioned by the NYPD!

30 minutes before this picture, I walked past a guy defending himself in Spanish to two police officers, while holding the Elmo head at his side. It was one of the funniest things I’ve ever seen. I wanted to get a picture of his face but I was nervous he would rape me. But how often do you see a guy in an Elmo costume getting questioned by the cops?! So here’s the best picture I got:

You can’t really see his head because he was bending over at the time, but I’m pretty sure he had a black rubber dildo in his right hand…OK maybe it was something else.

What could elmo possibly have done? The only thing I can imagine is him whispering “they don’t call me tickle me elmo for nothing” to some poor little nine-year-old.

Either way, I guess they let Elmo off the hook this time. I’ll keep an eye out to see if he’s on the next episode of “How To Catch A Predator”.
