Elaine and I were checking out the used CDs at the local thrift store when I spotted a Rick Astley album. I know he's only made five albums, and we already own three of them. But I couldn't remember if this was one of the three or not, so I showed it to Elaine and asked her. I didn't expect an intelligible answer. Of course, I didn't expect what I got either.

There was a picture of Rick Astley on the cover. Not a shot from the famous video -- just a black and white, 3/4s profile from '93. Nonetheless, as soon as Elaine saw the cover, she screamed in delight, reached for it, and started babbling nonsense syllables as fast as she could.

I guess she recognized him.
