"Table Top Joe"

If you could spend an evening with one character from a Tom Waits song, which character would you choose and why?

As for myself, I would choose to spend an evening with none other than Table Top Joe. We'd go to one of those fancy pants martini-piano-bar-type places, where I would get him pretty nigh drunk on G & T's. It wouldn't take much... then I'd grease the hired piano player to take an extended break, and then "TJ" (my own pet nickname for him) and I would play the piano together. I would stick to the bass end, and of course, cover the pedals.
