Random Silliness

I love the Car Talk guys, and some of my best vacation memories of recent years have involved me and my husband driving to the beach, howling with laughter at their Staff Credits.  At the Car Talk website you can find the whole list, but I thought I’d share the ones that make me smile and/or laugh until tears stream down my face, or until my husband nearly drives off the road and through a cornfield in Easton, Maryland. I hope these make you smile.

Self Defense Coordinator–Nina Cahones

Airline Seat Tester—Wilma Buttfit (this is the one that nearly made us wreck the car)

Director of Organ Donation Program—Olivia McColon (I can’t read this one without laughing)

Director of Sports Information—Linus Scrimmage (hmmm…I think I know him, only his name is John and he once got an intern believing grits grow on trees….that could be a blog post unto itself)

  1. I adore Car Talk! I think my all-time favorite “credit” is: Russian Chauffeur: Picov Andropov. I don’t know why, but I always get a big grin every time they say it.

  2. I used to listen to them with my late hubby. He loved cars and we would enjoy their show. I have to find them again as they are great. These are so funny! Wilma has to be my favorite! Thank you for visiting me today and the kind comments on my cards! Made my day!
