Harrison Hanafan likes compiling lists. He lists his extensive cartoon collection: Alvin and the Chipmunks, Betty Boop, Bugs Bunny, the list goes on. He lists the reasons why he split up with his appalling heiress ex, Gertrude: ‘REASON NO. 2: Those teeth! … REASON NO. 5: Embroidery.’ He lists his imaginary inventions: ‘Music Pills … Swallow a sonata or two. Mozart lozenges.’ He lists things that make him melancholy: ‘continuous cloud cover … balloon animals … Velcro.’ He even lists his new girlfriend’s ‘hot flashes’, along with their probable causes.
