Baude-ice Rippers

If you weren't in Federal Income Tax today, you missed out on an incredible sight. Will Baude was wearing an unbelievable shirt of a kind that's hard to identify. Clearly a dress shirt of some kind, but no collar to speak of, a little frilly... I don't know whether to call it a blouse, or a chemise, or what. Whatever it was, he looked as if he'd just emerged from the cover of a bodice-ripper novel about forbidden love in the 19th Century. He was a Yale Law student! She was a farm-girl from County Cork! The world pulled them apart, but passion drew them together.

Basically, this was Will today. Although his shirt was somewhat more tastefully buttoned. Obviously, I had trouble paying attention.
