I thought it was supposed to be the most expensive items? I picked out the right ones and they said they actually were the most expensive and I got them wrong

I never heard of half of those companies and stores. E.J. Korvette, Highland, Dominick's, Fretter, and Goldblatt's. And I really miss Montgomery Wards, along with Sears, K-Mart before they merged, and Woolworth's. We didn't have Woolco, which was a division of Woolworth's.

Casio Rap Keyboard
Incorrect! It was $99! The other stuff was $69.88 and $44.88!

Correct me if I'm wrong, but I'm quite sure that $99 IS more than either $69.88 or $44.88.

They're saying that your choice was wrong, or incorrect, the Casio Keyboard was $99.00, and the other stuff was cheaper. They did it to me too.

That's the thing - I *did* choose the keyboard for that question!

I probably bought every item at one time or another. We called it an IRONING BOARD.

Who amongst you, remembers the 2nd/3rd season ep. of the Partridge Family, where Danny Chris and Tracy gave away Golden Hamburgers, (that's what Tracy called them;) with each PF LP?!?!

5/10. Damn. As bad as Vanna White on The Price Is Right.
8. Reminded of those lame-ass Fretter Zone commercials.

For those of you who think UTZAAKE made a mistake and mistyped...the answer is no. Vanna White was a contestant on TPIR. She was one of the lucky ones who got to "Come on down! You are the next contestant on TPIR!"
