Nekkid Candlepin

In December, while I was in the home office, we had a team building event--we went candlepin bowling. I had to chuckle at the irony.
Candlepin bowling is HUGE in Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire and New Brunswick, and no where else, except, according to Wikipedia there is "one isolated candlepin center in Wyoming, Ohio, a suburb of Cincinnati".
Anyway that's where we went....that one isolated candlepin center.

So, when I came across this little item, I had to chuckle again and rejoice that Maine still does it with a little more panache than O-HI-O.

Jenn-So sorry :)
Al-I don't know the chop shop. Is it one of those shows like Pimp My Ride?
The Dog reference I get, as Retired Guy is a big fan.
