And yet, I got the point.

Today, I have received an email with the following subject line contents:

Mandatory Nude Presidents Day Party $10

Setting aside the issues of misplaced modifiers and lack of an apostrophe next to the "s" (either before or after, depending upon how many you wish to honor), I wondered if, in this context, "Party" might signal an affiliation. If so, ten bucks is cheap for the opportunity to win over some superdelegates. Can't imagine Hillary and Barack skipping this one.

I bet most of the nude presidents will look more like William Howard Taft and Chester Alan Arthur than JFK. But $10 might be worth a look-see.

There's a story of LBJ being half-naked and interviewed by Walter Cronkite that I recall from reading Mr. Cronkite's bio.

I'll have to dig it out when I get home. It's a hoot.
