Sweet Ade...Quinn!

It's Barbershop Music Appreciation Day, and the three Js are in fine form even if their quartet is short by one. They're no doubt singing a love song for Quinn, who will most likely just turn up her Boys R Guyz CD to tune them out.

This is also the fifteenth anniversary of the episode "Fair Enough," which aired on this day in 1998. Daria and Jane survived a close encounter with a heartbroken Stacy and Upchuck barely escaped being beaten to death with his own mandolin. Hey, do they write barbershop minstrels?
