eEvilyn Diddley Scott, I Presume

In case you've yet to do your reading up on the biography and habits of the mysterious stovepipe-hatted man on the back of our cards & t-shirts, may we introduce eEvilyn Diddley Scott? We also suggest learning the strange and wonderful history of his pants.

If that's not enough villainy for you, consider these thoughtful thoughts on the subject:

"An excellent man, like precious metal, is in every way invariable; A villain, like the beams of a balance, is always varying, upwards and downwards, himself his own dungeon. "
-Saskya Pandita, 1182-1251, Tibetan Grand Lama of Saskya

"As there is a use in medicine for poisons, so the world cannot move without rogues."
--Ralph Waldo Emerson, 1803-1882, American Poet, Essayist

"As for an authentic villain, the real thing, the absolute, the artist, one rarely meets him even once in a lifetime. The ordinary bad hat is always in part a decent fellow. "
--Sidonie Gabrielle Colette, 1873-1954, French Author
