Hello! I must confess to being a regular viewer of the game show, 'The Price Is Right.' I've yet to figure out who has the most wrinkles, Bob Barker or Barker's Beauties. Today there was a contestant I enjoyed watching more than usual. The "game" he played was 'Punch Board.' (break the covering of various holes, which are numbered 1-50, & good ol' Bob pulls out a slip of paper with the dollar amount for the hole) This elderly man was punching out 4 holes & was attempting to punch #7, but punched out #6 by accident. His physical reaction made it obvious that he'd not intended to punch #6. Too bad, too late. However, before Bob pulled out the slip of paper, he had a short convo with the elderly man: Bob: Is there a special reason you referred #7? (lucky number, someone's birthdate, or age..etc) Man: 7's just a good, sound, biblical number. Bob: Well, what's the matter with the number 6? Man: 6 is, well, <a pause & confused look> it's just a bad number. 6 is the devil's number. Bob: <pulls out the slip of paper> Well, the devil says you win $10,000.
