A Stomach-Growling Evening
RAY: Here's the answer: If you paid attention, you'd know that there was no mention made of eating the food.
TOM: Oh that's good!
RAT: They had ordered takeout. So they went there and looked at the menu, and they talked to the hostess, they waited for their food to come out, they paid the bill, they left, they didn't eat.
TOM: And they had the food with them.
RAY: The food was in the car, and the smell was driving them crazy, crazier by the minute. So who's our winner?
TOM: Hey, that's pretty good. The winner this week is Howard Goldstein from New Haven, Connecticut. And for having his answer selected at random from the pile of correct answers that we got, Howie's going to get a 26-dollar gift certificate to the Shameless Commerce Division at cartalk.com with which he can get a copy of our new four-CD set, Field Guide to the North American Wacko.
RAY: Congratulations, Howard!
