Another Sign of Impending Doom

Ok so I have not yet found employment and employment has yet to find me. I’m thinking it’s lost its GPS device. So I have been watching SportsCenter in the morning which is just a guy classic. Then I have been watching a little bit of The Price Is Right with Mr. Montgomery Burns'(from the Simpsons)incarnate otherwise known as Bob Barker. Well today at the beginning of the show they chose this guy who looked like he was from college and possibly on the baseball team. I say “possibly” because…well he was wearing a practice college baseball jersey. He tried to be funny from the moment he took the place of a contestant. I also want to mention that he took the aim of the show to bid on an opening product to win your way onto the big stage with Mr. Burns, I mean, Barker himself and then have a galla of a time trying to when one of their glorious prizes on their silly little games. Ok, so this guy would keep bidding like one dollar over everyone’s bid at least until the end. Deservingly so , by doing this he never got up to the big stage. Whenever he was outbidded he would sarcastically flail his arms up and act like was congratulating them but he would make a face so very sarcastically at them and take his hands away. He did this to everyone that won. The only time he was nice to anyone was when they announced an 86 year old lady was called to be on Contestants Row( totally different than death row, well maybe not so much for the lasy she was pretty old I think she lied about her age). But even then I was waiting for him to act like he was going to hug her but only to slyly reach and grab her dentures out and put them between his fingers to make a mouthing movement and then to smash them on the ground making devil horns out of his fingers. The contestants and the crowd kept getting on him for doing the survivor style bidding so he finally changed his bidding style to a way that showed better “sportsmanship”. So unfortunately he won a prize from contestants row and went up to meet Bob. While on stage, get this, he exaggerated his excitement movements by jumping up and down like a someone on an imaginary pogo stick while being attacking in the pants area from red fire ants. I mean really was this necessary. It was like he was making fun of the years of excitement that people had shown when they won their way to meet the immortal Bob. To cut to the short of it he won his prizes and then went on to spin the wheel to see if he would be on the show’s final showcase. He on his first spin got like $.90 and no one was able to come close although the guy’s annoyance did not stop here. Every time a fellow contestant spun the wheel he would walk over out of the designated spot for him to stay in and would move his arms around like a helicopter that was trying to move a mach speeds. Thankfully Bob ignored this behavior but the look of the contestants was priceless because they showed in their indvidualized faces a degree of shock that bordered on, “why the heck is this guy acting like this?”. But of course this guy won the last spot onto the final showcase showdown. When he won he did more exaggerated movements that I have since blocked out of my mind. The other contestant he was going up against was a Master Sergeant from the Marines a well put together confident personality (based on my judgment of the total of 5 minutes I saw him on TV. I was pulling for the marine to win. They showed the first showcase which was really nice. I was surprised win Captain Spastic passed it on to the marine. The marine bid and then The Great Jerkface got a equally nice showcase. Then he bid. Bob told the Marine the actual price of his showcase and the Marine’s bid was $8000 dollars below. Then Bob did the same for Captain Spastic/The Great Jerkface and lo and behold this Guy got within $250 of his showcase which also meant he won both showcases. This for me prompted me to say for some reason that, “This world is going to atch-ee-double ell (H-E-LL) in a handbasket.” Funniest response to someone winning or someone losing I ever had. So there’s the next great sign of Impending Doom.
