The Perils of Pickpocketing Postings

The Puzzler

RAY: Here's what happens. You see a sign that says, 'Beware of the pickpockets.'

TOM: And you immediately reach for your wallet!

RAY: You reach for the most valuable thing you have, whether it's your wallet, your passport, your Rolex watch, to reassure yourself that it hasn't already been taken.

TOM: And the pickpockets know exactly which pocket to go to.

RAY: They hang out by the signs. Exactly right. It seemed like a good idea at the time. But it didn't work. Do we have a winner?

TOM: We certainly do. Our winner this week is Jay Macro from San Juan Capistrano, California. And for having his answer selected at random from among all the correct answers that we got, Jay is going to get a 26-dollar gift certificate to the Shameless Commerce Division at with which he can get a copy of our latest CD, which is called, 'Doesn't Anybody Screen These Calls? Calls about Cars and Animals.'
