Dear HowardRoark:

I would like to thank you for your post. I say "I would like to..." but I can't.

That's because I didn't understand much of what you said. In the future it would help if you would use short sentences and small words, and even then I'm not sure I'll follow. I will promise, however, to try.

On the off chance that you were complimenting me, "thanks."

In the more likely event that you were attacking me for some perceived shortcoming or slight, well then, "nyah, nyah, nyah." I figure you would only do so to try to obsfucate the fact that you came in 4th while I was the 4th Runnerup, and you can't figure out how that works. (Hint: it's not in a 10-Q or any of those other useless documents you insist on reading.)

I imagine that Mr. Hoofy's minions are behind the smokescreen, and will emerge at the most vulnerable moment to proclaim my victory a fraud.

I have no such intention. Like the Canadian figure skaters, I accept the decision of the judges with good grace and as completely final, although I note several huddles and conferences between your handlers and the French judge during the past few weeks. I wouldn't even mention it, except for the obvious connection and the distasteful smell resulting from such a putrid liason, no matter how innocent it might seem.

I hope you enjoy your 15 minutes of fame. It's now :14 past.

Spincerely submitted,
/s/ GoofyHoofy
