There must be a subliminal message with Poe holding his prospective Lt. Governor with his middle finger extended.
But never fear, he is in good company.
Now I know where Mrs. Devon gets her potty mouth from and why she uses it.
Subliminal messages work on her, unless it is Watson the Wonder Dog urinating (I have been told by a higher authority "piss" is not a proper way to speak) on a tree.
Then she gets her signs crossed.
