The Famous American Quote
"If you're a girl and you're wearin' a dress, whip 'em off. That's it!"

Frank Zappa commissioned the making of the above pictured quilt. This quilt, made entirely of womens undergarments, is complete with drawings, messages, stains and no doubt, wonderous aromas. I was fortunate enough to attend a show at the Berkeley Community Theater on the tour that yielded some of the component parts of this quilt.
There were panties strung from both sides of the stage to the bass drums and one panty over each of the holes in front of said drums. Very cool. Wafting panties marking time as the girls made their way to the stage to give their undergarments to the bass player, who used giant plastic tongs to deposit them on a silver platter which he then passed to Frank. If the garment was deemed worthy, Mr. Zappa would then twirl them on his finger without missing a beat. These gifts were saved for later use. The results were very Frank.
The Panty Rap Quilt is on permanent display at
The Hard Rock Cafe - Atlantic City - Inside the Taj Mahal.
As promised, we made the trek to the Taj and photographed the quilt.
