Yeah, true, MMario, but the quality, Man! The Quality! E'en The Bard proclaims it:

"The quality of MOAB is not strain'd,        
It droppeth as the gentle rain from heaven        
Upon the place beneath: it is twice bless'd;        
It blesseth them that posts and them that reads:        
'Tis mightiest in the mightiest; it becomes        
The throned musician better than a lyre;        
A lute doth show the force of musical power;        
The accordion doth shock and awe,        
And therein sits the dread and fear of all.        
But MOAB is above this linear sway,        
It is enthroned in the hearts of kings and popes,        
It is an attribute to God his own self,        
And earthly power doth then show likest God's        
When MOAB seasons Musick."
