Dead People's Stuff Antiques

Finally, some truth in advertising; after all, what are antiques if not (usually) the stuff of dead people?

“It’s a slang word. When a man and a woman are in love, the man puts his…”

“No, no. Here: ‘F. O. C.’

Of course, Rigby Reardon, with some timely assistance from Philip Marlowe, eventually discovered that it stood for Friends of Carlotta. If you don’t know the rest of the story, you owe it to yourself to rent Dead Men Don’t Wear Plaid some day. I assume that these Leaside FOCkers are fans.
