You can can give an Earl Scheib paint job to a '76 Gremlin, but it's still a '76 Gremlin


On behalf of the magazine where I am copy chief, I'd like to retroactively apologize for this cover image, which ran in July 2006. Obviously, if we had known that two years into the future the Republican party would trademark the concept of lipstick, we would not have used it.

(Yes, it's a tech magazine. ERP = enterprise resource planning. It's ... it's ... um ... software that helps you plan resources for your enterprise.)

(Punkinsmom has some lipstick info here.)

Or something.




p.s. Thanks for the link!!!
