The Puzzler


RAY: Here's the answer. The singular word is cow and the plural is kine.

TOM: Kine.

RAY: K-I-N-E. Exactly right. You've probably used that word in a crossword puzzle or two.

TOM: I have.

RAY: Pretty cute, eh?

TOM: Who sent this in?

RAY: Paul Muelich.

TOM: He's got more brains than us.

RAY: So who's our winner anyway?

TOM: Ah, the winner is Darin Greel from Dover, Delaware. And for having his answer selected at random from among all the correct answers that we got too, Darin is going to get a 26-dollar gift certificate to the Shameless Commerce Division at cartalk.com, with which he can pick up our best-selling Car Talk lackey's T-shirt, fourth edition.

RAY: We have four editions of the lackey T-shirt?

TOM: Yeah. We got so many freeloaders on staff, we had to make four T-shirts to accommodate them all. This one's got a press secretary, Don Beezanozy, and our swimsuit designer, C. Big Beheinz. And many, many more on, many more.

RAY: Anyway we better start laying people off, we're out of cotton.
