You wanna piece of my heart?

Label this one, Fun with industrial supply catalogs.
The Lab Safety Supply catalog landed in the newsroom's mailbox yesterday.

One entry (above) looks for all the world like a Loverboy Starter Kit. The red bandanna, the sexy look, the styled hairdo. Yes, you too can travel back to the early 1980s when bands like Loverboy ruled MTV and everybody was working for the weekend.
Shawn Ryan suggests rolling up the sleeves of this guy's T-shirt and calling it the Bruce Springsteen circa 1984 Starter Kit. (Young Courtney Cox Starter Kit sold separately.)
