Case of Chicken Soup

The Puzzler

RAY: How did I manage not to spill a drop of soup? And I failed to give a hint. I mean, the hint should have been that I don't think anyone, any of our listeners living in Florida --

TOM: Would have gotten this one right.

RAY: -- would have gotten this right.

TOM: Right.

RAY: Right?

TOM: Did the National Geographics have anything to do with it?

RAY: The National Geographics and the rotten fruit had nothing --

TOM: Nothing to do with it.

RAY: -- to do with it probably

TOM: Yeah.

RAY: When I went into the house, I left the soup in the car.

TOM: Of course.

RAY: And in the hours that it took to eat supper, fall asleep watching Buffy the Vampire Slayer, gather up the magazines and the like, the soup, which was in the cold Vista, froze.

TOM: Of course. Man, it was so cold that night.

RAY: It froze. It was about four degrees, and the soup froze solid, and of course, it didn't spill --

TOM: No.

RAY: -- because it couldn't. And who's our winner this week?

TOM: Wow! The winner is Amy Moore from Powell, Vermont.
