E- Essential Item: laptop, predictably enough, besides it contains all my music

Okay, enough about me. Now it's time for us to celebrate how very clever you are. As usual, this week there were some wickedly clever and funny labels, but for this week's Labia Award, I was particularly taken with a very inventive and creative use of labels by:
Just A Cool Cat
for his Friday, March 23 post entitled
"Friday random ten - Play it a bit later Sam remix"
which was labelled:
"secret message in plain view, the passport arrived"
This was very gratifying for a label scrutinizer like myself as I felt I had received privileged information that label non-readers missed.
Oh you are a clever one, Just A.
And for that we salute you.
