Pumpkin Spice Democracy
Post-Script: Inspired by a session of Man Cave typing with the little Brother/Webster XL-747.
Yes, perhaps a bit over-the-top and too political. I've tried to stay out of the realm of politics and controversy on this blog, if for no other reason than not wanting to alienate my readership, knowing that many of you come from diverse backgrounds. So, if this has offended, bothered or merely bored you, I promise to not always post these kinds of rants. I just need to order more of that delicious Pumpkin Spice Democracy and go chill.

Do you suppose the model number was some not-so-well-disguised attempt to gain some marketing advantage by using the same model number as the then-new Boeing 747? If so, that would be amusing, given that the airplane was the largest of its kind, and the Brother one of the smallest. Even the "XL" part of the model number would be amusing, in this context.
