We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
Poor Bird Dog. He's not very sophisticated. He's settled for a second-rate bizarre Swiss instrument to annoy his neighbors with. Well, I can't sit idly by and let some Swisstafarian bang on a dented wok and let it be passed off as cutting edge Swiss weirdness. The guy's positively buttoned down compared to Eliana Burki and her swingin' alpenhorn.
She's wearing a miniskirt and has lips like quadriceps. What's not to like?
