So, last night, I think it was 1 or 2AM, and I couldn’t sleep – a combination of still having flu/cold symptoms and a snow storm the day before… I was flipping channels laying in bed, and I came across GSN – The Game Show Network. The old (and completely cheesy) game show, Let’s Make a Deal (They have a pretty SWEET official website here) was on. OMG. This show was ridiculous. It’s been a jagillion years since I’ve seen it, probably since I was a kid. Now, as an adult, I was horrified. People wore slutty clothes. They looked like porn actors/actresses. The humor was, uhm, well, not funny. The microphone that Monty Hall held was, I swear, 18 inches long. The contestants had no emotion (one guy, with a pregger wife next to him, who looked like she could have had the kid on the show, won a years supply of LaChoy Chinese food, instead of the “luxurous Buick” valued at $6,200, said “No big deal” – he won LaChoy for crying out loud!!). But… most interesting of all – the majority (and I mean 75%) of the products given away were companies that I was not familiar with. Sure, they could still be in business, but my guess is that they were gone. I wish I would have have the foresight to write them down, or hit record on my Tivo, to look them up. Oh, well.
And, by the way, not a big fan of Buick’s, but I’ve never thought of them as “luxurious”…..
