The Puzzler


TOM: Wow. He got a box that was three feet by four feet --

RAY: Yeah, and just deep enough to hold a rod. So, the rod became the hypotenuse of a right triangle, the diagonal of the box.

TOM: Now, how could he have ever gotten home had he not taken geometry?

RAY: Well, the ironic thing is, he hadn't taken geometry, and he's only ten.

TOM: He's only ten.

RAY: He's only ten. Who's our winner this week?

TOM: The winner this week is Margery Butcher from West Hartford, Connecticut.
