Mary gets a new Mustang every year, courtesy of her husband’s job. A month ago, she filled the trunk with compost--her husband says the compost is ruining the trunk, and she needs to get it removed. Mary wants to leave it in over the winter, to help give the car ballast. Tom and Ray largely side with the husband--compost may be creating mold spores, and is definitely ruining the carpet. Tom suggests she tries a science experiment to see how much damage it does, but she’s probably better off de-composting the car.
