That's Handy

Email Sent in by Vernon:


When I was a little girl I had an encyclopedia set on my shelves. Do you know what it means as a little kid to have the sum of worlds knowledge in simple books on your shelf? Nowa days people just go to the computers to tell them the answer as if a computer had all the answers. Anyway I was curious what you thought about that.

I'm Heather and I live in Hoboken. I have written a lot of poetry and I have published some of it. I write lyrics for local bands and I want you to know that if you are in a band I will take then hand off of a local singer and attach it to your other hand. Like if you have a right hand already then I will take off the local singer's right hand and attach it to where your left hand used to be so that you will have two right hands instead of a right hand and left hand. I hope that makes sense altough I can explain it better if you need me to.

Keep in touch and tell me what you're up against.



  1. Can you write her back? I need it explained better.

  2. Gotta hand it to her she confused me, ....but I can't quite put my finger on how. If she put two left hand on one body, would that person be alright?

    1. Clearly, she works in a body shop. It's a shame your left hand does not know what her right hand is doing. and vice versa. Decline politely if she offers you a hand-sandwich.

  3. This is why you should never accept when a stranger offers you a "hand-job".

  4. I continue to agitate for a serial killer tag! Maybe "fava beans and a nice Chianti" would be appropriate?

    1. I gotta give it to you on this one, Agnes. I'm convinced. +1

    2. Thanks for lending a helping hand to my cause, Churro!
