Are you familiar with "Car Talk", the NPR radio talk show hosted by brothers Tom and Ray Magliozzi, known also as "Click and Clack, the Tappet Brothers"? The show ran weekly episodes from 1977 to October 2012, when the Magliozzi brothers retired, and now runs in reruns as a podcast and on satellite radio.

I was listening to Episode #2002 on January 13, 2020 when Ray announced the new Puzzler, a weekly riddle that's often car-related. After describing the Puzzler, Ray tells listeners how to send in their answer for a chance to win a $25 gift certificate. To my great surprise, it involved a Weber Vieluxe gas grill!

It was one of my favorites:coolkettle:

They came up with a lot of high end expensive items for their wish list of things they jokingly told people to send them. The Vieluxe was a perfect example.
