It’s been almost three years, so here is a new edition of Letters, in which we discuss everything from the California state flag to Mitch Hedberg. I might produce a fourth edition in the next few weeks, since I have stockpiled many crazy emails which I need to address.
Also, eagle-eyed readers might note that there is now a collapsible archive menu located in the sidebar. In celebration of this, I have opened up commenting on all those ancient entries. If for some reason you want to make fun of me for something dumb I wrote seven years ago, I’ll know all about it thanks to the magical properties of the Comments RSS feed.
One thought on “Letters 3”
One of my favorite Mitch Hedbergs:
I bought a doughnut and they gave me a receipt for the doughnut. I don’t need a receipt for the doughnut, man. I’ll just give you money and you give me the doughnut.
End of transaction. We don’t need to bring ink and paper into this. I just can’t imagine a scenario where I would have to prove that I bought a doughnut. Some skeptical friend, “Don’t even act like you didn’t get that doughnut.” “I’ve got the documentation right here. Oh wait, it’s at home… in the file… under ‘D’.”
