Warren, who's a friend of a friend of mine, tells me "there's this guy, up in Westchester, who has four arms. Four. No, not arms instead of legs. He's got legs too. He has four human arms on one torso. The guy calls himself Elbows Schopenhauer. He owns an antique store called Smoke & Mirrors."
"Oh," I say, " so the guys a prankster or magician or something."
"Beats me " says Warren. "All I know is the dude has four arms!"
