Saving Dougie from Chronic Laziness Disease

The Puzzler

TOM: The first think he does is to take the two pills out of the bottle, right?

RAY: Right. The only hope he has is to take the pills that he has, all 20 of them, and grind them up into a powder, mix the powder up, and then divide the powder into 10 equal piles.

He can do it either by eye -- or better still --

TOM: He can get the scale!

RAY: Right. And he can take one, little pile of powder every night at the right time. Who's our winner Tommy?

TOM: The winner is Linda Jo Lockner from Black Hawk, South Dakota. And for having her answer selected at random from among all the correct answers that we got, Linda Jo gets a $26 gift certificate to the Shameless Commerce Division at Car where she can order the number one album on our charts right now, the new CD called Maternal Combustion: Calls about Moms and Cars.

RAY: Number one album on our chart? What charts?

TOM: I started keeping charts myself. We only have about six albums. It's easy. I do it on the graph paper, see this, look.
