The finger on the trigger...

Wikipedia just told me this:

"Hemingway is believed to have purchased the Boss & Co. shotgun he used to commit suicide through Abercrombie & Fitch, which was then an elite excursion goods retailer and firearm supplier."

This is why I walk on the far side of the mall when passing Abercrombie & Fitch. How can you wear a shirt that is responsible for extinguishing such a flame as the one below?

Seriously. Check out that left jab. And the sea captain beard.
