I received a very strange note today. Here is the text:
I don’t really know how to tell you this, but…I need to hire a hitman. I realized this around the time I concluded you really weren’t a giraffe (while you were on a date) and I saw you telepathically insult Spock.
I’m sure you’re fantastic enough to understand that I had a dream where I made pancakes that looked like you. I’m returning your toilet paper to you, but I’ll keep your beard as a memory.
You should also know that I prank-called your boss and said I was you and I’ve decided to run away to Florida.
If your drink tastes funny, don’t think anything of it,
I promise you it’s the first time I’ve ever received a communication like this from a friend.
I also promise I’m not a giraffe and have no reason to insult Spock. I would love to run away to Florida – does anyone have a motorhome and lots of cash available???
Turns out my friend did a little MadGab dealio and I’m going to steal it. Here’s my own note, followed by the instructions to write your own.
I don’t really know how to tell you this, but you’re a lousy excuse for a circus performer.
I realized this while I was launching water balloons at unsuspecting pedestrians, you peed on a tree, and I saw you telepathically insult my neighbor’s cat.
I’m sure you’re constipated enough to understand I plan to call you “Furbit” from now on.
I’m returning your ant farm to you, but I’ll keep your false teeth as a memory. You should also know that I’m contagious and I’ve put you up for adoption.
Love, Hugs and Deodorant,
