Getting to 100

The Puzzler

RAY: As far as I know this is the only answer, and I'm going to go out on a limb and say, this is the only answer. I defy anyone to come up with a different answer.

TOM: Oh.

RAY: There'll be 500 emails before the show ends, and here's the answer I got. 123 minus 45 minus 67 plus 89.

TOM: Really? That adds up to 100?

RAY: Well, 99 anyway. It's close enough. Do we have a winner?

TOM: Yah. Our winner is Joan Crawford.

RAY: Joan Crawford.

TOM: From Mendham, New Jersey. And for having her answer selected at random from among all the correct answers that we got, both of them, Joan gets a 26-dollar gift certificate to the Shameless Commerce Division at with which she can get a copy of our most recent CD, which features funny stories we've told on the air over the years. It's called, 'Once Upon a Car Fire,' and it's yours if you want it, Joan, for being this week's puzzler winner, and a fabulous actress besides, I might add.
