I’m going to completely ignore the fact that the sign above the laxatives says, “SEE THESE RAVING BEAUTIES”.  I’m not at all sure what to make of that part.

    I know … somehow he reminds me of my old officemate Dan … not so much his actual features as the facial expression and posture. I can imagine Dan dressed in this costume (including fake beard) assuming exactly this pose with great glee. And Dan would totally have had a “SEE THESE RAVING BEAUTIES” poster.
