What Would Bob Barker Do?

I dunno if you've heard. But Drew Carey is officially the new host of The Price is Right.

Oh come on. My boy Mueller was running a campaign for Chuck Woolery to replace my hero and yours, Bob Barker, earlier this year. Unfortunately, the internets don't appear to be as effective as previously suspected for this sort of grass roots campaign.

At any rate - we'll have to just wait and see what happens with Drew and TPIR. I'm hoping for continued good things. Who knows.

Maybe he'll finally put an end to all of the shady bidding tactics we've seen over the years.

I was so unhappy when I found this out that I couldn't even bring myself to coherently form a thought. Drew Carey? Honestly?

At least I can make fat jokes.

Drew Carey is going to suck so hard.

I like the use of the background picture in this comic.

Yeah - although my post seemed somewhat ambivalent on Drew's hosting job - I feel as though it's going to be pretty terrible. Horrendous, even.

It's probably worse than when Louie Anderson took over Family Feud. Mainly because I don't give a crap about Family Feud.

I'll keep in mind that images are appreciated as backgrounds. Much easier than actually drawing something.

And Stobber, moobs are like, Cartooning 101 stuff. Integral part of the drawing arsenal. Cuz lets face it - moobs are funny.

I don't necessarily prefer pictures over drawings...I just think this one worked particularly well and a nice change.

You can't start using pictures all the time or soon the entire comic will be a picture without any drawing and then my Monday will be depressingly sad!

in all honesty i dont think any replacement host has a chance at being as good as the original. like in family feud, louis anderson didnt molest the women half as much as that original guy who was in running man.

yeah, i'm with you all. drew carey may not be the right one for this show. bob barker, i thought, always brought a bit of class to the show with his suits and skinny mic. with drew carey, it'll prob be funnier but maybe not with as much class.

and i'm not sure if jesus would've stopped me from bidding $401. i mean, it's a top of the line golf club set!!

I bet you nobody fixes their green divots in hell though, and as a result the greens are impossible to read.

Just sayin'.
