Deal or No Deal

I have just been asked to play the "Howie Mandel" part in my company's version of "Deal or No Deal". We'll be doing it during our annual Christmas party. Since I was cornered, I said yes. As soon as they explained how it'll work, my brain started coming up with ideas. This is good and bad. Good, in that I'm having some ideas, bad in that I'm having to filter most of them out as not being company friendly.

I'm afraid two things could happen; a) I fall flat on my face and the game sucks, b) I say "FU**" in front of everyone I work with. The problem is I'm not sure which would be worse.


I will, from now on, call you Howie.

First you must talk in an annoying nasally midwestern accent. Also, do not shake hands with anyone. The real Howie is a germophobe.

No, first you must catch charm in a bottle to play Howie, as he has tons of it.

I've never really watched it, but doesn't he have his head shaved? So shouldn't it be ...

First, you must shave your head.
