Muffled Out

The Puzzler


TOM: The reason that The Scott Muffler Company went out of business is they didn't make mufflers that go underneath the car.


RAY: No?


TOM: Because in 1919 cars didn’t have heaters. The Scott Muffler company was selling scarves.


RAY: Oh, those kinds of mufflers.


TOM: Put on your gloves and your muffler so you wouldn't freeze your tushy while you were driving in your 1919 Ford Model T. All right, do we have a winner?


RAY: Do we have a winner? Our winner this week is William DeBuvitz from Mendon, NJ. Congratulations, William!
