From Our Far-Flung Correspondants

Dateline: Northampton, Mass.

This just in:

Sull: You know what is humorous?
Diablevert: What?
Sull: Remember the show Pete and Pete?
Diablevert: Yup.
Sull: Well, the younger Pete goes to Amherst College[1] and I was talking to this kid who met him because I guess he was playing in his band somewhere and he was wicked cool but then the kids asked him where his Penelope tattoo[2] was and he got really pissed off and walked away.

. . . .

Sull: I want to go to Amherst College and try to find him
Diablevert: What would you do?
Sull: I dunno. I won’t, really. It would just be cool.
Diablevert: Indeed.

[1] Editor's note: IMDB has Hampshire, not Amherst. Which may affect which Scooby-Doo character he is according to the famous analogy.
[2] Editor's note: Petunia, dude. Jesus.

Well, if someone called my Petunia tatoo Penelope, I'd be pissed too: and walk away.

By the way, keep reading, don't want you to fall behind.

My old email-alias being ladypetunia, folks used to always ask me if it was a reference to Lil' Pete's tattoo. I always felt so much less cool when I had to be all like "Nah, it's more of a childhood nickname... from my mom." Shucks.
