What's so funny about a couple of brothers in a broadcast booth? A lot, apparently ... at least if you're a cartoonist.
For some reason, our humble hosts seem to find themselves the subject of more than a few cartoonist's musings. In recent years, Car Talk has appeared in comics from the august New Yorker to the quirky Zippy the Pinhead, to the nerdy-but-popular XKCD.
Want to check 'em out? Got a few minutes to kill? Great! Here they are, assembled right here for your time-killing perusal.
