I'm glad this story won, it was my personal favourite — after hearing it the first time, I instantly sat a friend down and made them listen to it. It's classic "Truth," where things are not as they seem, and something fascinating lies beneath the surface (like the Twilight Zone). It was too bad this episode was pitted against "The Body Genius" in the bracket (my 2nd favourite). I would've loved to vote for both.
