Soon, Bob Barker Will No Longer Have To Pretend That A Busty College Girl Bidding $1 On A Refrigerator Is The Cleverest Strategy He's Ever Heard

For die-hard fans of The Price is Right, today's announcement that Bob Barker plans to retire in June after 35 years with the show hits just as hard as if the beloved octogenarian had stepped up on stage, dramatically brought his quivering skinny-mic towards his lips, and informed the CBS television audience that God Himself had told him (through the voice of deceased announcer Rod Roddy, of course) that He was taking Barker after the very next spin of the Big Wheel. Take heart, Plinko addicts, for you still have more than half a year to enjoy your hero before he finally retreats to the paradisiacal splendor of the exact replica of the Price set he's had built at home, where he will spend the rest of his days being serviced by a private staff of Barker's Beauties, all of whom he's paid handsomely to waive their rights to troublesome sexual harassment claims should they tire of his favorite game, "How Much Did These Funbags Cost?"

Bonus: Enjoy this montage of Barker's greatest moments from the show once again.
