RUSH: Okay, folks, a couple things here about Two If By Tea. By the way, we have a competitor. We have a competitor. (interruption) Where? Oh, cool, cool. Well, we'll get to that call here in just a second. But we got our four grand prize winners for the trip to Hawaii. We've chosen them. It was a phenomenal success. I don't want to give you the numbers, but we blew the lid off, or the roof off, and we want to thank each of you who participated. We're not going to invade their privacy and announce the winners on the air until we get their approval. If we do get their approval, we'll give their names on the air. The winners have been chosen.
They will be contacted about their big trip to Hawaii, and they get to take it when they want. It's not up to when we tell 'em they have to take it. Most winners, "Okay, you've gotta take it between November 1st and 2nd this year, otherwise trip's off." We don't do it that way. We'll work with you, whenever you can get away is when you'll go. So there are four of those grand prize winners, the other winners have been chosen as well.
Now, we're announcing something else today. We got a little gift area at Two If By Tea. If you're looking for unique gifts, for somebody in your life who is a genuine patriot, look no further, because Two If By Tea is launching a limited edition premium patriotic gift set today. It's a gift set that is not your run-of-the-mill gift set. It's not a pair of socks. It's not a pair of underwear. It's not a patriotic tie. None of that. Our gift set includes two very high quality mugs with Rush Revere on one side and a brilliant quote, a patriotic quote on the other side. And I proudly say all this because I was part of the design team. One mug says, "The Liberals Are Coming!" Another mug says "O Say Can You Tea." And in honor of Ronaldus Magnus there's also a bag of red, white, and blue jelly beans in cherry, coconut, and blueberry flavors included with the mugs.
I've got one of the mugs here, but I'm not drinking out of it. I was gonna show it up here in just a second. Run in there and grab it, Snerdley, because I've got a mug here I can show you. It's a genuine, decent quality, big-size mug with the Rush Revere logo on one side and the slogans on the other. And best of all, the mugs and the jelly beans are made and packed right here in the United States, made in the USA. Folks, do you know how hard it is to find a mug made in America these days? It is not easy. But we here at Two If By Tea have found one, and it's of great quality. I just turned off the Dittocam and I'm gonna zoom in here in just a second and show you this thing. Okay, there it is, there's the mug with the Rush Revere on one side, and you turn it around, and this is the one that says "O Say Can You Tea." And then there's another mug with a different saying.
This a prototype. But look how big that is. It's a genuine mug, it's solid, you can't break the thing. I mean, if you throw it up against a wall you could, but it's made in America. So if your friends, your family, or even enemies don't like to drink actual tea, we've solved that problem. You can enjoy whatever you want to drink in the morning, coffee, anything else, in these very cool mugs. There's a limited quantity of these things. We've got 'em for the holiday season. Hurry, go to www.TwoIfByTea.com, or always you can call our call center at 866-662-1776 to purchase. No, they're not expensive at all, Snerdley. And it's all spelled out there at TwoIfByTea.com. Perfect, perfect little gift item for whatever else you're thinking of gift-wise this holiday season.
RUSH: Ken in Louisburg, North Carolina. Hi. Welcome to the program.
CALLER: Rush, I'm gonna buy a lottery ticket today.
RUSH: Because you got through and are on the program?
CALLER: Yes, sir. I've been listening since 1997, and I've never gotten anything but a busy signal, and I called today because my mom -- can I say her name?
RUSH: Yeah, go ahead.
CALLER: Betty Allrand. Oh, she's gonna die, she's just gonna die. She asked me what I wanted for my birthday and I told her to order me some Two If By Tea, and I got two cases, one case raspberry, one case regular. I tried my first bottle last night, raspberry, and I gotta tell you, I'm not a guy that likes any flavoring in my tea. I like the flavor of tea and I tried it because my wife wanted to try it with me, and she likes fruit in her tea, but the raspberry in there is not like -- fruit always tastes like you're trying to mask the taste of the tea to me.
RUSH: Very clever, very shrewd of you.
CALLER: And your raspberry tastes very fresh and very crisp, it was --
RUSH: You were able to taste the tea, in other words, along with the raspberry?
RUSH: I am so thrilled to hear you say that, because in our months and months of tasting, one of the requirements we gave ourselves was that we're not gonna turn these flavored teas into fruit juices. They're gonna be tea, you're gonna be able to taste the tea no matter what fruit flavor we add, and so you have made my day here. I want you to hang on here during the break. I want to ask you a couple questions when we get back, but you have confirmed that we're doing the right thing here. That's great.
RUSH: Okay. And we're back to Ken in Louisburg, North Carolina, and Ken, I wanted to thank you again for confirming there's nothing fruity about Two If By Tea. The raspberry flavor is there, and it's delicious, but you --
RUSH: -- can still taste the tea, and that is the point, and we've got a couple of new flavors coming and that's gonna be two of them, too.
CALLER: I can't wait to try 'em. Just very excited to talk to you. I'm a little bit nervous. Of all days to get through to you it was on my birthday, it's amazing, I'll have to remember my 35th birthday, for being able to talk to Rush.
RUSH: You're 35 today?
CALLER: Yes, sir.
RUSH: Thirty-five years old. Well, I'm gonna tell you what I'm gonna do. I'm gonna take your name, let Snerdley get your name and address, and when these new flavors hit, I'm gonna send you some of the two new flavors.
CALLER: Oh, you're kidding, that would be awesome. I really appreciate it.
RUSH: I'll send you a couple cases each of the two new flavors, and you'll be one of the first to get them. We go into production on them fairly soon.
CALLER: I cannot wait. Rush, can I touch on one more thing?
RUSH: Yeah, what is it?
CALLER: You had a caller earlier that wanted to know what he could do to basically protest the protesters --
CALLER: -- the Occupiers?
CALLER: And I feel for 'em, I understand where he's coming from, but it dawned on me that I protest them every day by getting up and going to work and doing the very best I can for my family and trying to better my own economic situation. So my suggestion to him is to do that, in protest.
RUSH: Well, that's great advice. Success is its own best revenge. And when you do that, you're forgetting about 'em. Just ignore them, that's the best thing anybody could do. So, Ken, remember now, hang on, Snerdley will get information for us to send a couple new flavors when they come out. I'm not sure when it's gonna be. It's not next week or anything like that, but we won't forget. When they hit, when they drop, you will be among the first recipients. Thanks much.
