NOTHING COSTS MORE THAN IT USED TO:

Is it time to buy that 50-inch plasma TV? (Keith Reed, November 20, 2005, Boston Globe)

Should you or shouldn't you this holiday season?

New brands, deep discounts, and increased production are pushing prices of high-definition television sets even lower this year. Consider: Circuit City is offering a 42-inch Samsung plasma for $2,700, slashing $800 off the regular price, and Best Buy is peddling newcomer Maxent's 42-inch, HD-ready plasma for $1,800. And last month, Fujitsu of America rolled out rebates of $500 or $1,000 on each purchase of its high-end plasma models.

No, you'll get one when you fill up your tank with gas.

You get a tank of gas when you buy an NFL glass.

Pretty soon they'll be so cheap we can grind them up and use them to make ethanol.

The way that print media is going, they'll be giving away subscriptions to SI (and all other magazines). The plasma TV will be an inducement to get you to sign up so they can tell advertisers that your pair of eyes might possibly glance at their ad...
