Subject: [Leica] Digilux digressions and dioramas part III, the thundering conclusion

Uh-oh, I think I'm channelling Mark Rabiner tonight.

I just had this vision of a new Leica product introduction at Photokina: 
the 35/90mm Duo-Lagavulicron.  It features a hollow double-aspherical 
element that can be filled with the LUG's favorite liquid refreshment.  One 
zooms the lens to 90mm by adding the precious stuff to the hollow element, 
thereby increasing its index of refraction and adding a bit of "warming 
filter" at the same time.   To zoom out to wide angle, one slowly draws the 
scotch out of the lens through a convenient Schott glass tube which 
protrudes slightly from under the lower left corner of any Leica M.

Recommended accessories to the Lagavulicron include the Tilley lens shade, 
in stylish black canvas, with a persnickety Canadian brass mounting 
ring.  Also the Mephisto tripod, with its air-bladder "anti-choque" image 
stabilization system.

(I really need to get more sleep.  Mark, honk if you see Rod Serling. . .
