Gee, Mons, I went to the link and the thing that really creeped me out about Abe's new 'do is the word "specimen" printed all over it.

What's with the repeated references to urine tests? I mean, is this some overlooked subsection of the Patriot Act? Is Waxman behind this? Bud Selig?

WS: I'm not saying you should be worried, but the wavy lines in the background could be -- I'm not saying they are, but they could be -- a composite of all the fingerprints of everyone who ever touched it.

Is all I'm saying.

It should have a 0.65% on the back, instead.

That way, we'd know what we could buy with it in France.

The purple's there to make it popular with the braces and bubblegum crowd. It coordinates well with the unicorns on their book covers.
