A great analogy that's lost none of its charm since you posted it a while back.

That's about the size of it; but to continue the analogy, what Jackson has done is to take a mint '34 Pontiac, hack it into a derivative and undriveable death trap, and boast about its originality on the strength of having kept the original radiator badge.
