Default Stars & Stripes galore!

Imagine......A show on British TV today festooned with the stars & stripes, the audience waving flags, the male competitors wearing stetsons & the winner getting 10,000, it's "Deal Or No Deal" with Noel Edmonds celebrating Independence Day, the show where the top prize is 250,000

I'm relating this extra information for the benefit of our US members [who might well have the equivalent over there] yeeehah!!

Oh right, the top prize there is $2000,000, wow, 250,000 is the biggest payout on any TV programme here.

I enjoy Deal or no Deal, our local barber was on it a few weeks ago, walked off with a grand.

That new "Golden Balls" is good, I enjoy that.

Free haircuts all round then?, lol, yes, Golden Balls is good, but I cringe when they have to choose share or steal, that's sooo difficult, they lie through their teeth don't they, I snigger when they both pick "steal", greedy b*gg*rs!!

ITV hedged a little on that, the producers of Deal No Deal said Miillionaire was an entirely different type of show, therefore they were right in claiming that. [I went online to ITV.com]
