Figure 1: Andre and the NHC Gang: Emmet Otter and his Ragtag Jugband? Or Chuck and the Riverbottom Nightmare Band? You decide.

Andre ‘s success has finally gone to his head. He actually asked me to pledge allegiance to him and kiss his ring finger.  “Forget it!” I said.  “Fine,” he replied and looked away.  We’ll see how that goes.  But he has bought 2 QiQuacs for NHC (nhc?) and several T-HRECS in the mean time.
