    Many have probably seen this already, but it's new to me. I love the guy's answer to the question at the end.

    That would be so awesome if it was called Velvet Merkin!
    His answer at the end is funny!

    His last answer is amazing. That now my de facto answer to 1/4 of the general threads that pop up.
