This post is mostly meant for President Barack Obama and Mitt Romney as they prepare for tonight’s first presidential debate, but I do think it’s possible that some of the rest of you (those who plan to participate in game shows, for instance) might also be able to take a few pieces of advice from it, so I have chosen to publish it here rather than email it directly to them. So. Here it is:
Hello, guys! How are you? Have you seen this clip from The Price Is Right, with the lady doing “Showcase Showdown”? Probably not, I guess. I have to assume that you’re both pretty busy lately! Hahaha. You are probably getting that all the time these days. “You pretty busy lately?” It’s not, like, a great joke, but it’s certainly humorous. But anyway so you’ll see in the clip I’ve attached that there was a lady on The Price Is Right and she was doing the “Showcase Showdown” and she took, like, FOREVER to figure out the amount she wanted to guess. Like, forever. You’ll see. So I just thought I’d pass it along in case you were feeling nervous about the debate tonight — I think it will teach you a good lesson about how long you should take to figure out your answers to things in order to get them perfect.

See? Take your time. Listen to what the crowd is screaming at you and then scream it back at them. I’m sure this method will lead to success. Good luck, I love you.
