"I shall build it, and they will come."

"They will come and be taken."

"I got credibility," Marshbaum said, wounded by my skepticism. "I took first place in Air Guitar at the county fair. If I had a gaggle of marketing geniuses and choreographers, I'd be bumping and grinding before every teen, making millions, and creating designer labels."

"I doubt you'd have even enough to fill a small case."

"I think I'll have three sections. Just like the Queen of Bubblegum Pop. Teething years. Mouseketeer years. Pop star--"

"Marshbaum! You weren't ever a Mouseketeer."

"I watched them. I'm donating my TV set. It's the same age as Britney."

"And how do you justify your pop star section?" I asked sarcastically.

"I eat Pop Tarts all the time. I should have a used box somewhere."

"Mold has no value outside a lab."

"IRS doesn't think so."

"The IRS may be moldy, but I doubt--" I didn't even have to finish the sentence. Revelation and french horns played all at once. "It is a scam, isn't it! Most people have yard sales. You're donating junk to a bogus museum and taking tax deductions."

"And you think Miss Oops-I-Did-It-Again isn't? She's a one percenter who have found loopholes in loopholes to tax cheat the people. Probably pays less tax than the person who stuffs her into her costumes. Their whole philosophy is Gimme More. And why should we hold it against her till the end of time? She's probably getting tax deductions for her traffic tickets and marriage certificates. Probably a half-fortune for her clothes. She has more costumes than an elementary school at Halloween. I mean where else would she put all that drek and get paid for it?"

"Are you really serious about this scam?"

"From the bottom of my broken heart."
