Have I posted this before? I don’t care. It’s so funny. (I hope the link works - I’m just listening to this on my ipod so I don’t know if the video above is the same)
Dear Entertainment Weekly,
Thanks so much for puttin’ a picture of Leonardo DiCaprio on the cover of your magazine. I like him, so you can imagine I was sure pleased to see a picture of him on the front of your book! It is nice of you to put pictures of things I like on your magazine front-part. For future reference, here are some other things I like. I like tomatoes, umbrellas (all kinds), some dogs, most cats. There’s a cat in my neighborhood named Speedy I’m awful fond of; maybe you could put a picture of him on your magazine. I don’t know if you’d send a photo-grapher to take a picture of him, or a sketch artist to draw a picture of him, but you’d better be quick ‘cause they don’t call him Speedy for nothing! Oh well. All the blood’s leaving my head now, so I’d better sign off.
