Dear Industrious Courier Editors,
a dozen shakes of a pony tail ago, you hollered thusly:
: Dear revered Paulette,
: It is with great dismay that we must inform you of a need to hold the presses. With our next edition of the Courier already laid out in our mind's eye, we prepared for printing. However, when we arrived at ye olde printing shoppe, we were greeted by a most unwelcome scene. Our shoppe was trashed, our ink was splattered, our quills were blowing in the wind! As if this were not bad enough, there were slanders and obscenities scrawled everywhere! It was, dear Towne Crier, an ugly thing to see. Alas! We are much too busy scrubbing & organizing, and removing mud from a pig's sty to meet this issue's deadline.
: Don't fret, dear Towne Crier! We shall be back in business next week! You shall read ALL the news that's fit to print ..... and then some.
: Might we suggest a warm elk hide while you wait?
: The Courier Editors
Ah, indeed you have been to hell and back!
Does all that dastardly activity have anything to do with The Queen's heinous words and letters???
I appreciate the elk hide, if you should be so kind and throw it out the window in my direction? And could you follow it up with that cuppa coffee laced with buttered rum?
I have decided not to move an inch from my spot at the very front of the line waiting for the Courier to shoot out hot off the presses, and vow not to desert my post even if no elk hide or tin cuppa coffee can be found...
Sigh... We, the Inquiring Minds of MohicanLand, Want to Know the latest...
