sea sickness is preferable to being devoured by a Great White I do believe, but correct me if I am wrong...

Sir,

I have read Heart Of Darkness twice, and unenjoyed it both times.

Is there something wrong with me, or is it really just a load of shit?

His 'sea-theme' books are worse, in my opinion. Do I need help?

Yours,

B. Butlin

PS. Was the author Frank Cannon's grandfather?

Why read it twice?

I rather like it. It's basically all about being up Shit Creek without a paddle, which I can identify with which I can identify with which I can identify with which, with.

I read Robinson Crusoe twice when I was a boy, both times while having a fever.

Robinson was struck by a fever in the novel as well as I recall but I may have just imagined that.

Why read it twice?




Sir,

In response to your enquiry above, I should ask you to choose an answer from this selection:

A. I heard that it had to be read twice before any sense could be made of it.

B. Having paid 30p for it from a charity shop in Wolerhampton, I was determined to get my money's worth.

C. I'd forgotten that I'd previously read it, and only remembered when I reached the last page, upon which I'd written: "Never read this shit again!"

D. It was an accident; I slipped.


I believe, Sir, the roly-poly American Private Investigator, Frank Cannon, was 'played' by the roly-poly American actor, William Conrad. I thought it might just be possible that the aforementioned shit book author was the grandfather of the shit actor.

As you are aware, shit runs in families.

Obligingly yours,

Dearest Victoria,

Is it possible that:

A. Your first fever was the same type as your second fever?

B. Your second fever was the same type as Crusoe's fever?

C. Crusoe's fever was the same type as your first fever?

D. You are a closet homosexual, looking for your very own 'Man Friday'?

You are under absolutely NO OBLIGATION to select any of these answers, but your failure to do so would suggest that you had something to hide.

Hope this helps.

Your friend, although not THAT kind of 'friend',
