|Art Rapp's mimeo, because it can be and has been broken down to be carried in that container. In fact, Art was doing just that at the time of the Greenlease kidnapping, and had horrid visions of trying to explain to the police that what he had in that bulgy bag was actually a mimeograph and not ransom money.
from Fancyclopedia 2 Supplement ca. 1960:
In addition to the reason noted, this title for Art Rapp's mimeo punned on an obsolete Armynian term for wrinkled clothing. When resurrected it proved almost impossible to run 16-lb, scrounged-from-the-Army mimeopaper thru it without vertical creases appearing in the result.
