In my humble opinion, "Price Is Right" has completely sucked since Bob Barker hung up his cleats. Here's why: The only people who watch "The Price Is Right" outside a nursing home are serious wake-and-bake marijuana hobbyists. This audience of captive stoners are people whose consumption of God's green herb extends beyond the "recreational" classification. And Bob's retirement from the show f*cked up a 30-plus-year stoner tradition: "Bowls/blunts/bong-rips with that guy who once had a mediocre sitcom about Cleveland" will just never be the same as "Bowls/blunts/bong-rips with Bob." Sorry, Drew, you'll just never be as entertaining during a mid-day blaze session between classes. BUT, yesterday "The Price is Right" took a huge step in getting its pothead swagger back with Snoop Dogg making an appearance on the show. It more or less melted the face off the Internet and the minds of weed smokers everywhere.
I can't imagine how green the Green Room at CBS was before the show. And, am I the only once disappointed he doesn't appear in the old-school Lincoln with a huge plume of smoke, sparking down a Honey Dutchie? Perhaps best of all, afterwards he more or less put his stoner stamp of approval on the show.
''I had fun. This is like one of my favorite shows. As a kid watching you know, coming home from school, I didn't want to go to school, I'd watch 'The Price Is Right.' Loving the way it was put together, the prizes, Bob Barker, its just like the feeling is still there. It's like it never left."
Remember, kids: Enjoy watching the "Price Is Right" while you can. Because the only time you're every going to watch it north of 23 is when you're puking your guts out with a hellish death-grip fever on a sick day. Or when you're really, really old, and then it's just depressing.
