The chasm between the Normites (the followers of Norma Abrahms and his Tailed Beasts) and the Neanders (the followers of Roy Underhill and his Primitive Hand Tools) is a wide one, with animosity between these two camps often disturbing the otherwise tranquil and harmonious Wreck. In an attempt at reconciliation I propose an all encompassing NEW woodworking religion - The Mosrchgue (MOSque chuRCH synagoGUE) with Les Nessman as its Prophet (I was considering Dubya as the profit prophet- what with all his early pratfalls - I’m mean being felled by a peanut! That rasied the Clutch Meter’s maximum value up at least three notches above the Gerald Ford mark.) Followers can recongize each other by the one or more visible bandaids, bandages or surgical tape they wear proudly on one or more of their appendages.
(For those not familiar with Les Nessman, google “WKRP” or “Les Nessman”)
Now fess up. With all the sharp tools in the shop and all the sharp edges on freshly milled stock, to say nothing of burs on metal parts, sharp corners on band clamps etc. , I’m betting almost anyone who reads this message has at least one bandaid or the like stuck to some visible part of their body, or a tan line where one recently hid skin from sunshine.
It’s time to put aside our differences and unite against the MDFers, the OSBers and the Melaminites!
What say you!?
