A New Sign for the Garage

The Puzzler


RAY: You looked at the sign and said, "The spaces between Click and and and and and Clack aren't equal."

TOM: Very good!

RAY: Now I'm sure there are plenty of other sentences in which you could use the word and five times in a row, but that's the one that I came up with. "The spaces between Click and and and and and Clack aren't equal." Do we have a winner?

TOM: We do. The winner this week is Denise Desault from Cambridge, our fair city, Massachusetts, and for having her answer selected at random from among all the correct answers that we got, two, Denise gets a 26-dollar gift certificate to the Shameless Commerce Division at cartalk.com, with which she can get our new collection of funny stories we've told on the air over the years, called Once Upon a Car Fire.

TOM: And if there was a theme for these stories, something that tied them together somehow, what would you say that theme is?

RAY: They're funny?

TOM: Well, yeah.

RAY: Usually at someone else's expense?

TOM: Yeah, whose?

RAY: Oh, yours.
