I also would have refused to take the one in the photo up there in favor of the other one, who is pictured at "Edge."

Would have been fired, too, but it would potentially have been worth it.

Off point slightly: What kind of a name is Hrrschr? I've never heard or seen anything like it. Anyone have knowledge of its ethnic derivation? It's fascinating. As is Mr Hrrschr. But I digress...

It might be a Srbsk name --(that's literally how they write 'Serbian'). I'm being totally serious.
