What a shame we don’t have a tape of the moment. Three youths, you might say, were much taken with the skeleton. It is merely speculation, and pejorative, to describe them as stoner wannabes. Who built this? one wanted to know. Michael pointed out Constantine as the sculptor of the skull—freshly remodeled to include a flapping jaw—and out came the classic quote: Dude, you’re an artist! Eh, it’s a gift. [Christina built the rib cage, Judy built the pelvis and femurs, while Michael built the hands and arms.]
