This One Goes to 11

Here is a funny comic that I came across recently (thanks Kelly AB9RF):

“Spinal Tap” is a reference back to the classic Rob Reiner film This is Spinal Tap, where Nigel explains the value of an amplifier gain control that goes all the way to eleven.

For more fine, sophisticated Spinal Tap culture, see the fan web site or the official Spinal Tap site.

73, Bob
