Dear Editor:

Michael Conniff: “Andrew Kole is a stupid idiot.”

Andrew Kole: “Michael Conniff is the stupidest stupid idiot in the whole wide world.”

Michael: “None of the other kids like stupid Andrew Kole, because he’s so stupid and junk and stuff.”

Andrew: “I have like zillions more friends than Michael Conniff, who is a big fat stupid, and I can prove it.”

Michael: “I have the best talk-show audience in radio, and they all like me and think Andrew Kole is stupid, and a bunch of stuff like that.”

Andrew: “My mom’s gunna tell Michael Conniff’s mom he always says stupid stuff all the time and what a stupid idiot he is plus he’s gunna be in trouble.”

Michael: “My dad was in the army and he beat up lots of Germans and stuff in some war and he can also beat up Mr. Kole (Stupid’s Dad) any ol’ day he wants, and he’s also stupid and everybody hates him, also.”

Andrew: “Michael Conniff’s brain is as big as a teenie-weenie speck, which is why he’s more stupid than even someone stupid enough to live on Mars or in outer space or in the ground.”

Mike McGarry
