Lady on the Right: “And my frock is actually a reengineering of the Shroud of Turin.  I had to pay a pretty penny for it, but rich people in this country don’t have to worry about taxes, and we have lots of cash just lying around, so why not use some of it to desecrate religious icons? I feel completely resurrected when I wear this.”
