While I was in New Orleans, I bumped into Harry Anderson at his magic shop in the Quarter. I ended up talking to him for about a half hour. One thing I noticed was that he had a tattoo of Jack the Pumpkin King from Nightmare Before Christmas on his left forearm. The following conversation ensued:

Me: This is a neat place.
Harry: Thank you.
Me: Wow, that's a great portrait of you and Harvey.
Harry: Thanks. I like it. I had it done right after the film came out in 1996.
Me: So, Harry, do you like Nightmare Before Christmas?
Harry: No.

Dead Silence for about twenty seconds.

Harry: I lost a bet with my Godson.
Me: That's a Hell of a bet.
Harry: You're telling me.
