I am deeply sorry to Mayor Hancock. Regardless of any political feelings toward him or his administration, I keep thinking of the following quote from Repossessed every time I hear his name:
Frieda : What does the name ‘Aglet’ mean anyway?
Braydon : Well a long time ago ‘Aglet’ meant ‘He who puts those tiny little plastic things on shoelaces’ you see a long time a go a mans’ name was his profession.
Frieda : Oh so a man named Fred Carpenter would build houses and John Baker would make bread.
Braydon : Exactly.
Ned : So what did John Hancock do?
It’s nothing about him, just his last name. Still, I think it every time. Sorry about that, man.
