Have you ever gone to a thrift store and NOT bought a record because you

interesting game, they will each buy their own vinyl and disguise the record
information and play to win points.  Since Max was caught cheating last year, an
impartial judge, Hemroid the Leader, will join. What's the prize? Pasta? A bowl of
crispy cereal? Tune in and find out.
