The Not-So-EZ Pass
RAY: It was in the UPS truck. Every time the truck went through a toll, he got charged. Until it actually got delivered to its destination it may have gone across bridges, through tunnels, and so on. It could have cost them 600 bucks!
TOM: But who had to pay?
RAY: We'll find out. I don't know. Do we have a winner?
TOM: Yeah, we do, the winner is Ed Novratil from Los Angeles. And for having his answer selected at random from among all the correct answers that we got, Ed's going to get a 26-dollar gift certificate to the Shameless Commerce Division at cartalk.com.
And with this gift certificate he can log on and do all of his holiday shopping without ever having to endure the inconvenience of interacting with an actual human.
Among the new items you can order this season at cartalk.com is the two CD set, the "Best of Car Talk," volumes 1 and 2, now together in one ugly package, and we wonder why we never sell any of this stuff. I think it's the pitchmen that kill us.
RAY: I think so.
