Wal, now, Cousin, you really make yer mark when you wear polyester pants in
muggy weather, especially if you sit down on some of that virgin vinyl or
leather.  All the world kin see when ye get up that your butt would obscure
a unfolded newspaper.  Mebbe two axhandles acrosst.  Me, I just don't sit
when I'm a wearin' them.  Period.  Bad enough they cling to yer legs.  Bad
as scared cats, in that respect.  Yours, Lawndale
