Look at it this way
Print TypeOf(Me["Label1"])
16  (=gb.Object)
OK! It is an object so I can do Object "stuff" with it. Like looking at 
BUT if you read every word of the help for Object.Type
"Returns the class name of an object."
Object.Type(Me["Label1"]) is just rerturning a string which is the Name 
of the class of which Me["Label1"] is an instance --- but it is still an 
object not a Label!

:-) It's good fun isn't it!
