    Good friggin grief! Who in the hell would want to look at that thing on the way to work? Looks like a nightmare from Midsummers Night Dream.

    I got all incensed about that last week, but I was told it was an April Fool’s joke.

    They (being Outside the Beltway) thought it was an April Fool’s story, too, but said the Alexandria paper that broke the story on the 30th of March is STILL carrying stories about it as of the 2d of April. So….?

    But, but it gurgles. A great nation deserves great art.

    How many different illegal drugs would you have to be on to “conceptualize” something like that?. I’m sorry, but I just can’t believe that is real.
