When Fourth-Graders Date

Email Sent in by Lucille:


I like your profile. Thank you for sharing yourself with the world. Can you imagine what would happen if to thank you the world hugged you? First off all you'd be crushed outright. Nothing would be left but some powdered bones and blood goo. Second off after tha sadness of your family and friends they will want to sue for wrongful death. But who says you can sue the world? There isn't a court alive that would take it on. You'd have to start small at the local level take it to the not-local level and finally make it to the superreme court in washington (dc). They will pass a law against the world but the world is so big it would laugh it off: so said the poet Carl Sandburg: "Laughing the stormy, husky, brawling laughter of youth, half-naked, sweating, proud to be hog butcher, tool maker, stacker of wheat, player with railroads and freight handler to the nation." That would be the world, ignoring all pleas for justice to your death. It is indifferent. So be must we all be.



  1. I'd take it to the Superreme Court in Washington, but I DON'T KNOW WHICH WASHINGTON YOU'RE REFERRING TO. WHICH? WHICH?

    Oh. DC. Thanks.

  2. lol, J. I like the title also. What a strange, strange person. What was he thinking?

  3. I am officially mad at Lucille for sending in my email to this site! I just asked a simple question: Who would take on suing the world? I bet the Devil could do it! She is a suave non-blue-collar lady lawyer. Just the type to take on the case. So, if you have a problem, if no one else can help, and if you can find her, maybe you can hire the D-Team! (insert most awesomest music ever here)

  4. Well spoken and surreal. I hope she gave him a chance!
