Comment of the day: Brass olives
When you work at a newspaper, people send you some pretty weird shit -- I've got one guy, for example, that regularly leaves me hand-written notes and sculptures made out of coat-hanger and papier-mâché. That's kind of charming, but this email I got today is just bizarre -- and while this space is normally reserved for reader comments left on Show and Tell, I felt it was weird enough to share with you. By the way, that picture at right is apparently a brass olive.
Have a nice day !

Dear Tom, ignoring for a moment the troubling undertone of menace in the phrase "I'd lik to sell you my brass olives," no, I do not need any. But thanks for checking.
