Listen carefully, can you hear it? That yodeling mountain climber is sounding just a little bit more festive today. Why, you ask? Well, it's because Bob Barker, the original host of the classic watch-when-you're-staying-home-sick daytime game show, The Price Is Right, is coming back! Yes, to celebrate his 90th birthday, the man who reigned over the show for 35 years will be returning on Thursday. He retired back in 2007, at which point the oddly svelte Drew Carey took over, but his spirit has still filled the game of showcase showdowns, pricing games, and awkward punches. We don't know exactly what to expect from his appearance, but there's one thing we're sure of: The lifelong animal-rights activist will ask us to have our pets spayed or neutered. Hey, the pet population isn't going to control itself, right Bob?
