Keepus Leftus, Brutus
TOM: I think the hint was, when you said they came upon some ancient Roman ruins, among them a stone quarry.
RAY: That was a big hint. The signs were in the road, so to speak. What they found, was that the ruts in the road leading from the quarry were deeper than the ruts going back. They were deeper because there were no stones going to the quarry, but plenty of stones leaving.
So who's our winner?
TOM: The winner this week is Karen Taylor from Mountain City, Tennessee. And for having her answer selected at random from among all those correct answers that we got, Karen is going to get from us a 26-dollar gift certificate to the Shameless Commerce Division at car talk.com, with which she can almost get one of those stainless steel Car Talk thermoses.
