A Company Move Like None Other

The Puzzler


RAY: We moved from the 22nd floor to the 12th floor. Well it's right; it's true, isn't it?

TOM: It is true. And people didn't think of the third dimension.

RAY: They didn't think of the third, nobody ever does.

TOM: No one ever does--

RAY: Except Rod Serling.

TOM: Especially when someone's talking about lakes and rivers and stuff like that, you forced people to think in two dimensions.

RAY: It wasn't nice was it?

TOM: It wasn't.

RAY: Well, blame Steve, not me. Do we have a winner?

TOM: Yeah. The winner this week is Carl Strane from Snook, Texas, you know where that is?

RAY: No.

TOM: Neither do I. And for having his answer selected at random from among all the correct answers that we got, Carl gets a 26-dollar gift certificate to the Shameless Commerce Division at cartalk.com, with which he can get a brand-new CD called, Once Upon a Car Fire. It's a collection of true family stories that we've told on the air over the years.

RAY: Yes, like our story about discovering how many engineers it takes to change a light bulb. Or at least how many MIT educated engineers who are friends of ours, it takes to change a light bulb.

TOM: And it's got a very funny story about how the entire staff of the show abandoned you in your hospital bed and went off to South Beach.

RAY: That wasn't funny.

TOM: I guess you had to be there. Oh and you weren't there, that's the point.

RAY: Yeah, and I paid dearly for missing that trip, 18 percent a month I think.
