From the Mailbag

From "Fit Life"

I have been taking HGH Life™ for five weeks and there is a noticeable improvement in me overall. Waking up without muscular pain is the most obvious! When I run out, I shall be ordering as much as my pension will allow. I am in England and am 79 years young!

Dear Mr. Life:

Good for you, sir! I'll bet you don't look a day over 80.

Very truly yours,
Poppy Buxom

I'm a freelance reporter with Newtopian Shores Magazine. I'm working on a "best of"-type piece on Newtopian Shores blogs, and I was hoping to ask you a few questions about The Opiate of the Masses. It's snarky, it's fun, and it's worth writing about.

Please feel free to e-mail or call me at (555) 555-1212. My deadline's kind of tight, but I'd love to get you in there.


Dear Mr. Wonderful:

I love you. Will you marry me?

Yours most sincerely,
Poppy Buxom


  1. I am torn between saying (a) it's about damn time you got some press and (b) er, good luck with that.

    So, uh, good luck with that damn press!

  2. What?
    Nothing about the size of your penis?
