Be True to Your Stool

It's the rule, there's a stool, there's a stool

Barrow is the name of the small town in André Alexis's Pastoral (see yesterday's post), Blaine in Christopher Guest's Waiting for Guffman (1996) -- the story of a former off-off-off-Broadway hopeful (Corky St. Clair) who helps a small Missouri town produce an epic musical for its sesquicentennial. Among the highlights in Blaine's history is furniture production; stools in particular after someone gave President McKinley one while he was passing through town, and he liked it.
