Short info

The self-inflating Key Buoy from Davis Instruments ends the nightmare of keys dropped overboard. About $7.

Detailed information

Dick and Leo call the Key Buoy a marvel of engineering.  If you go boating and accidentally drop your keys into the sea, the key buoy will expand and eject an upright 14" bright orange air tube above the water.  Dick and Leo have great fun talking about this gadget.  They will be having more fun with it when Dick shows this gadget on Call For Help Episode 445.
Warning from Dick and Leo: If the bright orange 14" tube stays up for more than 4 hours, you should call your doctor.

Family Feud in Family Fortune

A UK listener wrote in about hilarious answers from Family Fortune, the UK equivalent of Family Feud.
Dick recants the story that Richard Dawson could not stop laughing in Family Feud, at an answer to the question: "In what month of pregnancy does a woman begin to look pregnant?"  For more Family Feud dumb answers, see Episode 103.

The Greatest Game Show of All Time

Match Game was recently voted the greatest game show of all time, on the Game Show Network.
