I got the following e-mail today from Lucy:
While it pains me even to write this, I can’t leave you all in the dark.
The Fat Mannequin is gone. The store is closed. Empty. The Fat Mannequin is no more.
I’m sorry to have dropped this bomb on you.
Let’s all just take a moment of silence, and hum a verse of kum ba yah
While Fat Mannequin won't be there to greet me when I return, I know he'll be there in spirit.
