9 - Actually, I think the lyric goes "I hope that when this issue's gone I'll see you when your clothes are ON," which then leads into #4.
10 - That he's gotta buy it? That the pages from his mind are stripped? That's a toughie.

Man, I loved that song. Had the LP way back when, favorite song was either "Rage in the Cage" or "Piss on the Wall." But "Centerfold" was a classic.

T14 - named after Puckett's hometown in WA

That's Washington, not Western Australia, BTW... :p ;)

When I was going to school in the little farming community of Walla Walla, Washington, I used to drive by Union Gap all the time. And here I'm thinking "That can't be it..." Union Gap is about as small as towns come. I don't even know if they have a stoplight in town (most small towns in Eastern Washington don't, or one at most).
