Post by Aya Reiko » Tue Oct 31, 2006 9:34 pm

After hosting the Price is Right for longer than most of us here have been alive, Bob Barker has decided to hang it up this coming June.

Does that mean the show is going to end? I hope not, because I like watching it, but it won't feel the same wihout Bob anymore.
Bob: People! Tiff had to put the crying Usagi banner up! Enter the contest!!! D8
Tiff: They must love making Usagi cry. ;_; poor Usagi.

Wow. . . it's the end of an era. I'm a huge TPIR fan and I never miss it when I have a weekday off. It won't be the same show without him.

Bob Barker joins the ranks of people like Dick Clark and Fidel Castro who just. wont. die. Isn't he like 107 now!? *dies* And he's still mandhandling "Bob's Beauties" >_>; Although it will be sad to see him leave TPIR, the show definately wont be the same without him.

That's too bad. I wonder who'll replace him.

FYI, Plinko's overrated. Punch a Bunch FTW.

It's just called the Punchboard now. And I like Plinko; whether a chip falls one way or the other is exciting. But they should dispense with the easy prizes and just give them five chips.

Hole in one (or Two) and Cliff Hangers are also teh win.

He's almost 83

And when he was 73, he got to beat up Adam Sandler... sort of.

I adore TPIR, and I adore Plinko.

*sniff* I'll miss Bob.

Joey: The question is, Rachel, does he like you? ''Cuz if he doesn''t, then it''s all just a moo point.
Rachel: Huh...a...moo point?
Joey: Yeah. It''''s like a cow''s opinion. It doesn''t matter....It''s moo.

And if you a blast from the past: The first time with Bob Barker hosting. All the way back in 1972.

Wow, that video was... surely different. I dig the 70s hair. And the description was right, the audience did look bored, lol. I really am gonna miss Bob, though...I've been watching TPRI ever since I was a little one, like three or four at the youngest.

It won't be the same.

Wow... I never thought I'd see him go. He's always been there.
And really, why shouldn't we be afraid? In case you haven't heard, life is terminal. Cigarettes will kill you. So will your cellphone. Your car is a deadly weapon and alcohol is a quiet killer. Don't lick the lead-based paint on the walls. Don't lick the back of a postage stamp and certainly don't lick any strangers! That will bring you down quickly indeed. Don't drink the water but don't drink less than eight glasses a day. Your enviroment is toxic, your natural resources are dwindling, your days are numbered, but what ever you do, don't panic! The stress, don't you know, will kill you.
