Two Bedouins and a Broken Car

The Puzzler


RAY: The only scenario I can envision, is that the first brother’s brakes had failed.

TOM: Yeah.

RAY: So, if, if in fact his brother had tried to tow him home, he'd be crashing into him every time he stopped.

TOM: Sonja Henie's tutu!

RAY: If the broken car is driving in front, and the driver steps on the brake, his brother will see the brake lights and know enough to step on the brake himself and slow both cars down.

Do we have a winner?

TOM: The winner is Victoria Loudis from Douglaston, New York. Congratulations!
