Fancy yet wholesome - I like the cut of that spinner rack's jib.

Them pamphlets ain't too shabby, either.

huzzah!

ps. Is that YOUR rack? I'm jealous, if it is.

Thanks, fellers!

The rack is on loan from the C. Matz Special Collection. Twice I've hired moustachioed bandits to break into Mr. Matz's house and raid his priceless collection of antique spinner racks, and each time the scallywags bungled the job, grabbing all the wrong stuff. Like I need another copy of The Gilmour Girls on DVD. And then it turns out all I had to do was ask to borrow one. Just like in those Seasme Street skits on sharing.

C. Matz is, for the purposes electronic convocation and communication, known as "gus and fer." So the above compliments bestowed on rack and comic alike should be looked at as a cynical ploy to drive the value of his collection even higher. Like "jib" is even a real word.

After visiting that Wholesome site, the only "rack" I'm seeing is C. Matz'. Dude, those girls's calves were hot! Swimwear for Amish?

We live in a weird and fascinating world, don't we?
