Dear Tom and Ray:

Two questions. Why is it always "Tom and Ray," and never "Ray and Tom." It's obviously not alphabetical. Second question (another husband/wife dispute here); why were/are "cosy wings" called cosy wings? We hope you can resolve this soon.

TOM: Well, the first question is easy. We put our names in order of I.Q.

RAY: Right...ascending order!

TOM: But we haven't the foggiest idea what "cosy wings" are. We've never heard of them. Are they some regional delicacy? Like Buffalo Wings?

RAY: Maybe one of our readers will know. If you know what "cosy wings" are, write to our "Cosy Wing Research Project" care of this newspaper.
