Super awesome crap

Does anyone remember when Wheel of Fortune used to have people shop instead of just win money?

Like, they would win a certain amount of money, and then at the end of the round they could select items they wanted worth however much.

I seem to remember some of the luxurious prizes and fabulous merchendise being furniture, grills, pianos, grandfather clocks… Zenith console TV’s….

No one ever wanted the stuff that I did. I always wanted the stupid crap, like the life-size ceramic cheetah with gold claws… or the arcade games…

I wonder what they ever did with the crap that no one chose?

I still want it.
