God bless, Jack White. He’s weird in all the right ways. Monday night on the History Channel’s American Pickers, the rocker-impresario welcomed the show’s Mike Wolfe and Frank Fritz to Third Man Records Nashville for a little wheeling and dealing. As you might expect, Mr. White drives a hard bargain. The pickers offer him five grand for his vintage jukebox and a black-and-white photo booth. Jack asks for six. Did they strike a deal? Did Tempest, the world’s oldest burlesque dancer, step in to sweeten the pot? And what carcass causes Jack to exclaim, “I love the majesty of taxidermy.” Find out at 5min.com. The full episode, titled “The Elephant in the Room,” can be seen at the American Pickers site.
