Dear Giant,

I have a question. How many of your comic strips contain cats I can snuggle? I have always wanted to snuggle right up to you. It is not creepy! I am just a big fan of yours who admires your fine taste in creating all those wonderful characters, like Yokyok and also Fruit Pie the incredibly overpowered turned paladin.

However, I, for one, welcome the change in ambiente, and variety in the salad menu- but I detest your hideous choices in Fantasy Hockey teams, due to your bias for rather obviously ill-mannered Half-Orc barbarians, who beat the taiko drums with their admittedly gorgeous but stil obviously tender fingertips.

I have a question. How many of your comic strips contain cats I can snuggle? I have always wanted to snuggle right up to you. It is not creepy! I am just a big fan of yours who admires your fine taste in creating all those wonderful characters, like Yokyok and also Fruit Pie the incredibly overpowered turned paladin.

Maybe if we do this again (say, if the Giant replies) we should agree on a theme? Then it'll read less like the ramblings of a madman and more the carefully thought out words of a madman.

For that matter, I suggest duckies as a possible theme.

Given that the man openly stated he wasn't readng the forums anymore, i doubt he'll take more than a glance let alone answer.
That said, if we do it again, could we try to make it so our rambling madman at least make coherent sentences ?
