Their hit radio show, "Car Talk," on National Public Radio has them answering everything under the sun, from questions about the suspicious ticking noise in Brenda's 1990 Nissan van to whether they're boxer or briefs kind of guys (FYI: Tom goes commando while Ray opts for boxers). Listeners of the show are familiar with their random rants and raves, but now, the rest of America is about to get a slice of the Tom and Ray Magliozzi's (also known as Click and Clack, The Tappet Brothers) caustic pie with In Our Humble Opinion: Car Talk's Click and Clack Rant and Rave.Why would NPR put two M.I.T. (!) educated grease monkeys on the air to talk about auto repair? Won't listeners of "All Things Considered" be offended? With over 2 million listeners tuning in each week, and with one Peabody Award under their belt, somebody must like Tom and Ray, so what better way to thank their listeners than by collecting their outrageous rants and raves for non-radio listeners' consumption?This madcap collection of original rants, raves, and musings, not to mention declarations, addresses a variety of non-car related issues, from what size is a Starbucks coffee (how does tall=small?) to how Bill Gates fixed solitaire for PC users so they can win. Even Hollywood gets a special rant as Tom suffered through
