Greetings Infomaniacs,

Congratulations to "Lee Peterson" who won this week's "Mind Scrambler". Here was the scrambler:

I know what my job is,
The point has been made.
You say I have a big head,
And you're right, I'm afraid.
Put me in my place,
And then leave me alone.
What I need most,
Is someone to drive me home.

What am I?

ANSWER: A nail.

Enjoy!
