The Magliozzis' Employee of the Month
RAY: Here's the answer. Crusty was not using his cell phone to call his bookie. He was using it as a camera to take photographs, so he would know how to put the Jag's dashboard back together. Now before you complain that this was a lousey puzzler, we in fact had a similar thing happen in the shop not long ago. We laid down the law about making calls on company time and all the guys complained that they'd never be able to put anything back together if they can't take pictures of it! So there.
TOM: Yeah, exactly.
RAY: So who is our winner?
TOM: The winner is Jesse Horst from Inver Grove Heights, Minnesota. And for having his answer selected at random from among all the correct answers that we got, Jesse's going to get a $26 gift certificate to the Shameless Commerce Division at cartalk.com with which he can get one of our endangered Massachusetts grease monkey travel mugs.
RAY: Well, congratulations, Jesse!
