Flat Tire -Oh Fudge! Audio available:

Ralphie gets to help the old man change a flat tire, holding the hubcap out to collect the nuts. The old man bumps the hubcap sending all the lug nuts flying through the air. Watching in shock, Ralphie murmers the famous "Oh, Fudge" - only he didn't say fudge! Shep told an early version of this story during a 1-2 minute segmen of his May 18, 1970 show.
