Reading from Bottom to Top
RAY: I did give the hint that it was quasi-automotive. The places where you're apt to see one line of text and the next line of text written above it are when instructions are written on the road.
TOM: Like, "No left turn."
RAY: Or, "Pedestrian Crossing." Do we have a winner?
TOM: The winner is Dennis O'Hearn from Belfast, Northern Ireland. And for having his answer selected at random from among all the correct answers that we got, Dennis is going to get a 26-dollar gift certificate to the Shameless Commerce Division at cartalk.com with which he can pick up our new non-boxed CD set. We thought the boxes were kind of a waste of money frankly, but we are now offering the best and second best of Car Talk in a single package for your listening or gift giving pleasure. Now how is that for Christmas?
RAY: How is it? Well, no better than when they came separately but it's all we've got to play with.
