Some friends of ours - last name Jackson, bought a new house a year or 2 ago. When we went to look at it, I couldn't believe the backyard actually contained TWO sheds!

Oddly, they did not share my hilarity.

I have two sheds, but my name's not Jackson.

My Python name? uh... how about Angus Podgorny.
