It's funny

Contestants on Wheel get so excited when they win the car. But ... the smallest amount of cash on the wheel is $35,000. The Mini-Cooper plus $5000 comes to ... $36,250.

For anything but the minimum you could buy a Mini-Cooper and have more than $5000 left over.

Actually, the smallest amount of cash on the final wheel is currently $30K (upped from the longtime $25K).

The car is valued at the MSRP, which no one in their right mind would ever pay, so the winner of it has to pay income tax on that artificially inflated figure. I'd prefer the cash, thankyouverymuch.

Why oh why do I clutter my brain with such trivia, while at times forgetting important information? (sigh)

Oh. I thought they'd upped it to $35K.
