Dirk Daring's Death-Defying Desert Deeds, pt. 2


All local lads like liberally loading ink-lined literature with alliteration. This simple strategem substitutes solving serious stumpers such as snappy, snazzy, and snoozeless storytelling. Politeness predicates paying attention to the plight of your periodical's patrons, however, who may plead that a piled-upon plentitude of poetic permutations outpaces patience, pleasing none.

Like so.

Lorna "Dune" - tasty!

Steve's widow Terri is from Oregon, where the death and funeral were still getting lots of attention last week. She must have been a saint.

Have you heard about the rash of anti-ray hate crimes that occurred after Irwin's death? People were mutilating sting rays and leaving them on the beach. As a warning to the other rays, I suppose.

Message: You don't mess with humans. Humans mess with you.

Hey, just wanted to say "congrats" on being the lead story in the 2006 Best Stories - Comics! We got our copies at B&N this weekend. Next time you're visiting C-ville, swing by and sign the buggers.

Thanks, Scott! I haven't seen a copy of this book myself yet. Does it look nice? I'll have to run out and check the local B&N.
