    The first record I ever bought with my own money, on 7″ vinyl. Not a terribly shameful choice, but I still kind of wish it had been something cooler.

    I heard a gag a while back that I surmise you might appreciate.

    Frog walks into a bank, wanting a mortgage. Mortgage adviser’s name is Patrick Wack. Asks the frog his name, to which frog replies “Kermit Jagger”. Frog asks for three hundred grand to buy a house. Patrick asks if he has any collateral, and the frog hands him an ornamental glass unicorn. Confused, Patrick goes to his manager, relates the situation, and asks for advice -- what the hell is this thing, and do I give him a mortgage, or what?

    “It’s a knick-knack Paddy Wack. Give the frog a loan. His old man’s a Rolling Stone.”

    I’m sorry.

    Jörg @#4,

    Thanks for that. It is less funny but the sentiment is right on.

    It’s not “El”, it’s L. And pizza is something you eat with a knife and fork.
