Tom Miller
Food truck operator


Tom's food truck serves sliders. Jimmy asks him how he makes them; Tom says he also makes a "killer Philly cheesesteak". He had a heart attack in May and was in the hospital for six days. He had to wait in the emergency room because of COVID cases. The smartest person Tom knows is Ed Ungrue. He "knows a little of this, a little of that."

Tom says this isn't his area of expertise at all. Ed thinks it's C but he isn't certain. Tom's phone-a-friend is their age so probably won't know it. Tom doesn't think there's a rapper named Ivan or Vlad, or a Lionhearted rapper. He decides to go with C.

Tom doesn't know what sternutation is. It sounds like someone being reprimanded after breaking down the word. He's leaning toward C. Ed doesn't have any suggestions. Tom decides to use his 50:50 lifeline.

A & B
Based on that, Tom says it has to be B.

Tom says, "Do you think I messed him up?" He didn't quite catch what Chris said, so he decides to go with D.
Spoiler
Answer: C (Thelma & Louise)

I knew I'd posted about this before but had to search "carrots" to find it. Below is a post from September of 2016. I'm probably headed for it again this year. Not only am I eating carrots every day, I'm also eating acorn and butternut squash and sweet potatoes at least four times a week.
$5000: Essentially dyeing your skin from within, MyTan Bronze Tanning Pills provide a "healthy glow" without the sun, thanks to high doses of what?

Susan says the answer popped into her head before the choices appeared on the screen.

I gave myself hypercarotenosis about a million years ago -- the carrots right out of the garden tasted so good to me that year, so I was eating four or five every day. The doctor at my annual checkup was alarmed enough to check it out with some of her colleagues, and she called me back sort of laughingly to put a name to it. Since then, if I get a yellowish tinge creeping into my palms, I just cut back on the garden-fresh carrots.
