TOM: Ohh. He weighed it.

RAY: Exactly. He weighted the knitting, the knitting needles, and then he weighed the ball of yarn.

TOM: Of course, he knows the ratio now.

RAY: He knew the ratio, and he did the math and he said you can knit two more feet. Pretty cute, eh? So who's our winner?

TOM: The winner this week is Kim Canavan from Louisville, Kentucky, and for having her answer selected at random from among all the correct answers that we got, Kim gets a 26-dollar gift certificate to the Shameless Commerce Division at, with which she can get a copy of our double CD collection called, The Best and Second Best of Car Talk.

TOM: No. After this we have to start coming at it from the other direction, like the best of the worst of Car Talk.

RAY: That might be easier.
