Dumb Answer of the Week
What Happens When You Speak Before You Think.

March 18th - March 24th, 2012

Text by: Jim Williams

The latest "Dumb Answer of the Week" comes from the Tuesday, March 23rd edition of "The Price is Right".

Say hello to Hampar. He just won his way on stage by bidding...

...on an all in one touchscreen computer & wireless printer. And you know why he bid $1?

Personally, I think he overbid on it, but that's neither here nor there.

Now, Hampar has a chance to win this.

A new bedroom group with mattress and a Kindle knockoff e-reader (not pictured).

To win the bedroom suite and Kindle wannabe, he'll have to successfully play...



My thoughts exactly, Mr. Scott. Miss your presence on "The Office", by the way.

From left to right the items in the game are a ceramic tea set shaped like a British phone booth, a mandolin slicer, and a toaster oven.

Take a look at this ceramic tea set. It looks like something only Craig Ferguson would want to have on display.

It was just a joke, Sid.

Anyway, how much would you pay for that tea set? $15? $20 maybe?

Those would be sensible guesses.

How about you, Hampar? Care to tell us how much you think that tea set is worth?

"$85."

Indeed, Kuni.

And we all know what's coming next.




So, in addition to the "DAotW", Hampar can take heart in knowing one more thing.

I hate that little prick.
