Today is Day 5, Write Letter Home Day, and the last day of Humor Bloggers dot com Summer Camp, with camp counselor Shawn from The Shark Tank and The Open Letters Blog (where he is a co-author, can’t give him all the credit there). Never one to stick to the rules completely (I always adapt rules for memes to my own devices, especially on my reading blog, why should I change and not do something similar here?), I adapted the idea a bit in the form of a letter from my parents to lawyer to Chelle B., the cabal leader of Humor Bloggers.
Dear Mrs. B.:
This letter shall serve as formal notice of our intent to file a lawsuit against you and Humorbloggers dot com, due to your blatant and objectionable disregard of the law.
On Monday, July 27, 2009, in a summer camp sponsored by you, Head Counselor ThinkinFyou threatened to burn down the camp and then posted a pornographic picture on her site (we weren’t going to post the picture again, please) that has scarred the mind of our dear son, Unfinished Rambler, to this very day, July 31, 2009.
Also on Monday, July 27, 2009, Craft Counselor Mizzdrake called our son a…well…since we can’t bring ourselves to use the offensive word, a person “slow or limited in intellectual or emotional development or academic progress.” We admit that our son is not the sharpest knife in the drawer as he has demonstrated here and here (and by his overuse of hyperlinks and, even worse, parentheses, we have no idea where he learned that from, by the way, or his overuse of dangling prepositions either).
(which we share only in the interest of full disclosure of how horrifying it is) about a blogger named Nipsy, the name of whose blog we can’t even bring ourselves to type. Now our son is hooked on Joan Jett and is getting a bad reputation.
Then to cap it all on Thursday, July 30, 2009, Survival Tips Counselor Red Raider offered our son whiskey AND told him along with his campmates to take all their clothes off when we all know that…
Please also be aware we are jointly filing a formal complaint with the Federal Summer Camp Commission, The Idaho State Attorney General (where you are from), The Florida State Attorney General (where your head counselor is from) and the Better Business Bureau. Thank you and we look forward to resolving this most expeditiously.
Mr. and Mrs. Rambler
