Bob Barker Bids Adieu

6/15/2007 1:14 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

He came. He saw. He Plinko'd.

After 35 years of Showcase Showdowns, wheel-spinning, and being mauled by crazily hyperactive contestants, Bob Barker has finally come on down for the last time. Today, the man who laid a hurtin' on Happy Gilmore and who put the fear of god into every pet with a functional nether region, made his last appearance as the host of "The Price is Right," and entered the priceless world of retirement. May he rest in peace.

Bob is a true gentlemen and a devoted animal lover. I hope he enjoys many, many more years in retirement.

I freakin' love the tag line. He came, he saw, he Plinko'd. I cracked up when I read that! Bob Barker was good at his job. He has a good sense of humor, as we all witnessed in Happy Gilmore. He was instrumental in starting the anti-fur movement, which is pretty cool. Whether or not he sexually harassed the Beauties, we may never know. He may have settled that case to avoid it altogether (much like your family doctor would settle a malpractice suit) or he may have been guilty and known he couldn't win. Either way, no one knows but him and the Beauties and it's not up to us to speculate on his guilt or innocence.

Totally phony, this outrage over Barker and his beauties. Barker paid those women very well, and they were treated much better than the bimbos who were forced to kiss President Clinton's weenie. And look, all these bimbos are lining up to vote for Bubba's enabler (mrs. stand-by-your-man) next year.

Good riddance, you pervy old bastard!! His constant sexual harassment suits have provided me with far more entertainment than that ridiculous show he's hosted since the Depression Era! Now we know why he loves animals so much; he's a dog (and an OLD one at that)!

And for those that poorly attempt to defend him against those alleged "money grubbing" beauties he harassed for decades, you might be interested to know that his "retirement" was a FORCED retirement and not something he's doing because he wanted to. He was recently named in yet another suit but this time, instead of paying off the victim, CBS refused to pay off anymore people who brings suit against him and told Bobby to get his pooper scooper and Brill cream and hit the road!! And true to form, there he goes!!! Karma….

Bob,

Thank you for the 50 years of service but it's pointless to come back if they don't find a new host. It would ruin your moment from June 6. It would ruin it even more if you came back and just left mid-season. It's TPIR's problem now. Happy retirement!
