Peasant Shoe Uprising

The Puzzler

RAY: Here's the answer. And I'm sure a lot of people do know what the name for wooden shoe is, especially if you're a crossword puzzle fanatic. It's sabot.

TOM: Un sabot or un pair of sabots.

RAY: So, as the French are want to do, they add an A-G-E to make a word. If you look, a word that's often used when referring to our show - gar-bage. And they came up with the sabo-tage. Now there are a lot of rumors about the origin of this word. But I'm sticking with my story!
