Something about the artist

Wait until you read about the Looneys in this link. They are typical of so many people all through history.


Note the agitator in the destroyed machine. It has the perforations in the neck of the agitator like the early GEs which used that method to set the water level.


Thanks, Robert.

"WHAT A CRUST!" I've never heard that expression before. I like it. I'll have to start using it especially since I know so many people where it applies perfectly. I also like using Mr. Howell's expression from the Island..."the man's a bounder"...

I remember encountering the expression, "You tell 'em, pieface; you've got the crust." It might have been in a Mad Magazine or maybe in a bubble gum comic, but I had to ask my parents what "crust" meant.
