HIGHS AND LOBES ... AT 7TH AND MONTANA!
They say that to Ear is human ... but if you want a second opinion, just ask Barista Anthony. He took it upon himself recently to numb, then pierce his ears with a sewing needle and has been sporting a pair of green, plastic Ear Studs resembling golf tees ever since. Anthony's newfound fashion statement prompted Bobby Shriver, Our Favorite City Councilman, to give him a new nickname: "Lobes." "At first I was calling him Lobe," Shriver said, "but on second thought -- since he's pierced both of his ears -- Lobes seems more appropriate." "You betcha," I said, "Now all we have to do is spread the word." "Why don't you host a Press Conference?," said Anthony, eagerly, "Let's really get the word out!" "Forget the Press Conference," I replied, pointing my Spycam in his direction, "By the time I'm through with you, they'll be calling you Lobes from coast-to-coast ...!"
