Room of Brooms

Say Hey, sweeping aside the attempt at a pun in the previous post, tho corny, which reminds me I did purchase a good "old fashioned" corn broom at Walmart a couple weeks ago, say hey again, it was a good ol' fashioned broom made of corn material no doubt fashioned by kid labor somewhere in the world, but that all aside, in this photo, it is the shoes that caught my eye, now those are shoes, style talking here not to mention quality, those shoes when in need of repair, one could take 'em to a shoemaker and get them just good for more mileage, shoemaker, what is that, any out there, maybe they all went the way of Willie The Shoemaker? ---- and say, the cloth wraps for a set of brooms, what great dish rags, rags, did I say rags, 12th Street Rag, Johnson Rag, don't rag on me....

[help im being swept away on a streamofconsciousness - dave]

I know this

is this what they mean by over sweeping statements?
