Yeah....  This was my fallback poll. If one of the mods has a better poll, feel free to change it out.

Two of the above poll options have actually been done.

I had thought of another song that my brain was arranging for a brass quintet last week, but I forgot what song it was.

EDIT: typo fix

'Life on Mars' by David Bowie, but it's sung by a barbershop quartet.

“Sweet Dreams” by the Eurythmics, covered by a mariachi band.

Believe it or not, I have actually heard two different versions of this.

Oh Pintsize, the only thing edgy about you is your torso chassis.

Nice to see Pintsize back.  However I suspect we're not going to see an extended appearance from him anytime soon.

"It's the waiting that I hate" is a pretty universal viewpoint. Stress is always made worse by unknown and unknowable factors and I've found that my imagination is both better and worse than reality ever is!

Meanwhile, I suppose we have to thank Jeph for finally answering the mystery of Pintsize. Why does he do what he does? "I just wanted to cool and edgy." In other words like any other loud-mouthed class clown. Never forget just how authentically human the AIs are! I'm not sure how to understand his attraction to Claire's feet but, then again, I freely admit to not getting most fetishes.

It is to the FBI, whose field offices (and thus suspect lists) are bound by geography.

It just means he's found a site he can post (and monetize?) pics of (trans?) feet on.  That's my guess anyway.

Given the way Clinton and Claire are drawn, I kinda doubt Claire's feet are "Powerfully masculine feet jammed into dainty feminine footwear".  But I've been wrong before.  OTOH, I know a few larger-built women who have feet larger than some cis-men I know, so I'm not at all sure what counts as a "masculine foot" to begin with.

I once arranged a version of Freebird as a male/female folk duet, backed by a concertina...

In any case it surely wouldn't do much good for anyone to hack into the exam board, because its not as if they sit on the results weeks before announcing. They're surely assembled very close the the publish date, just a bit of contingency.

My wife’s feet are a bit longer than mine. Mine are much wider. Feet are feet.

Tangentially related. I was at the local Ren Fair over the weekend and actually found foot wear in my size. Some rope sandals in a US mens 10 6E.
They were in the discount basket at 2/3 the standard price. Turns out their 'malformed' hand-made sandals fit perfectly.

Can't be any stranger than the "French" squeezebox version on the "Swindle" soundtrack! :)

Or Tori Amos' cover of "Teen Spirit" on Piano.

Is this the end of Pintsize and Marten's relationship?  Will Pintsize get reborn as a toaster?  Will May get Pintsize's chassis?

Hair-metal remake of "Make Me Lose Control" by Eric Carman.
I mean, the song's actually more than halfway there already.
