Hello, Jay! I'm starting to give up on Brad! Last night we got a call from the Anderson's, this Scientologist family down the street, who we're not friendly with (for obvious reasons!), and they said that Brad was seen stealing one of their canoe paddles! We went into his room to look for the paddle, and found a Marylin Manson CD hidden away in his underwear drawer! We've reached the ends of our rope with that shocking discovery! Mr. Manson is a purveyor of filth and should be put in jail forever! He is single handedly destroying the moral fiber of our nation, which is why I joined the Families Against Manson Society (FAMS)! It's tough being a parent, trying to raise your kids right, while ignoring filth like Manson, Ellen DeGeneres, Keannu Reeves, Bill Clinton, the Cannes Film Festival, "Quake", the Ford Motor Company, and the New Yorker! It seems the world is against us people who are trying to teach morality to our children!

Well, it's just been one of those days, I guess. I'm currently teaching Katey how to play "Wankey Island", another good educational game from HareSoft. I think she's too young for "Jesus Hunt", but we can still help her with the picture Bible we got her. Well, good luck to you sir, and I'll talk to you later!

Rich

Dear Jay,

As I write this, Brad now sits in the Carlson County Prison. He was picked up last night after some of the local Police caught him tearing down the periodic table of the elements down in Mrs. Nibb's science classroom. He also broke a real of the educational film, "Protein and You", and knocked over the movie projector. What could make a child develop such an intense and awful hatred for science? We are making him stay a night in jail to see what it's like to be treated like a criminal. After finishing this letter, my wife and I are going to take this computer and throw it into the junkyard, as we are convinced Brad has gotten these awful influences from Satanic, Witchcraft-promoting, evil games like "Quake" and "Frogger". This computer, while entertaining and educating Katey, has caused Brad to plummet into a downward spiral. Our community is outraged, and we feel we are to blame, since we bought the computer, which led Brad down the Devil's wicked path. Although the Devil is penetrating the moral fiber of other families, mostly ones in the inner city, I WILL NOT allow the Devil to enter our house, not even through a "Modem". I wish I could keep the computer and purchase your software, as it seems you are genuinely interested in helping people like myself, but I must try to keep this family together. Wish me luck, and say a prayer for me, as we try to lead Brad from the path of the wicked to a course for God.

Sincerely,

Rich

    Meditations from a Movable Weiner

    Sometimes I dream that I'm sitting in the back of the defunct Weinermobile as it careens driverless down the highway. At first I thought this was symbolic of the powerlessness I feel in life, but then I realized it's actually the Weinermobile's dream of being able to drive again.

    BarkWire.com Dog Reviews: The Barquis de Sade & Cleaver

    Three years ago, when we were burying my uncle, Cleaver and some gross lady dog (Solstice???) showed up at the cemetery and starting going at it really loudly. It ruined everything and we had to have a "re-do" the next day and it cost a fortune. I've hated him ever since for that.
