This week on Car Talk, Suzy´s drive across Mexico is off to a rocky start. She hasn´t even crossed the border, and her Vanagon is already making a new noise that could foreshadow the Death of a Transmission. Will Tom and Ray counsel her to turn back, or just to go shopping for a good pair of noise-canceling headphones? Elsewhere, Patricia´s Subaru is having troubles starting, and exacerbating the problem is a large buffalo grazing between her and her car; and Katie´s right leg is showing its displeasure with her new Volvo by going numb when she drives it. Also, does Neil´s son´s decision to play the double bass mean Neil´s on a one-way street to Minivan Land, and is Kelly´s boyfriend nuts for insisting on warming up his truck for 10 minutes in 50 degree weather? All this, and lots more, this week on Car Talk. [Broadcast Date: December 22, 2012] 1. Language: English. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/rt/cart/121222/rt_cart_121222_sample.mp3.

Some stories tiptoe up and whisper in your ear - all sweetness and gumdrops and happy-ever-after-after-there-you-go. Then, there are the weird ones. We´re talking talking-chickens, blue plague spam monkeys, tug boats of unbridled and fetid fecundity, tulwar-swinging cab drivers, malls that maul you, gnawing on screwdrivers and jig-lining elder gods coming at you faster than a ride-on mow-down massacre mower shopping cart caravan. This is a collection for the seriously messed up minds of all you listeners who have grown tired of the trite detritus of day-to-day storytelling. These are some of the weirdest, most messed up mind-bending kind of stories that have ever been written - and I´m daring you to listen to them now. ´´Plague Monkey Spam´´ - a novella of spider-gods, storytelling and the kitchen sink. ´´Gnarly Ho-Tep Hoedown Two-step´´ - a story told over a hand of potato chip poker. ´´Hunger Time at the Midnight Mall´´ - a yarn of belly-grumble and fear. ´´The Last Curl of Gut Rope´´ - chicken, egg, chicken, egg, crack this riddle if you dare. All of this wonderful madness is brought to you by Steve Vernon - the creator behind the cult novella classic - Long Horn, Big Shaggy: A Tale of Wild West Terror and Reanimated Buffalo. 1.
