Eighty-eight Starlets

Fay Wray
No, no, there are not 88 starlets in this post.
"Eighty-eight" is jazz slang for a piano.
Because a piano has 88 keys.
(The Urban Dictionary includes some other
entries for the term "88," having to do with
Hitler, sex, and artillery, but that's neither
here nor there.)
