Letters to editors: readme struggles to fill article space

Thatcher Montgomery 9:57 PM

Hey Marisa,

This is Thatcher, your co-editor. I just want to let you know that we’re
actually short one article for our first issue. Thoughts?

 

Marisa Breitfeller 9:59 PM

Thatcher,

Fuck. Give me a second.

 

Marisa Breitfeller 10:04 PM

Yeah, I’ve got nothing.

 

Thatcher Montgomery 10:24 PM

Well, hmmm. Let’s see, we have controversial topics, welcome-back articles, humor, and a classy bear on the front page. I can’t think of anything that would make this issue better. We haven’t done a letter to the editor in a while, have we?

 

Marisa Breitfeller 10:34 PM

Yes! Perfect! Letters to the editor…let’s see. Have we already done a Nigerian prince scam?

 

Thatcher Montgomery 10:40 PM

Yeah, I think so.

 

Marisa Breitfeller 10:40 PM

Facetious discussions of the readme budget?

 

Thatcher Montgomery 10:42 PM

Check.

 

Marisa Breitfeller 10:43 PM

Creepily sexual Halloween advice column?

Thatcher Montgomery 10:47 PM

Um, we did that already. And, in case you weren’t aware, it isn’t even Halloween, Marisa. Wait a minute. We’re both editors. And these are letters, to each other…

 

Marisa Breitfeller 10:50 PM

I don’t follow.

 

Thatcher Montgomery 10:50 PM

Well, if you think about it, that email you just wrote was technically a letter to an editor..

 

Marisa Breitfeller 10:55 PM

Aaaaaaaaaaaand?

 

Thatcher Montgomery 10:58 PM

And, we’re looking for letters to editors to use in our readme issue.

 

Marisa Breitfeller 11:00 PM

You’re gonna have to spell this out for me.

 

Thatcher Montgomery 11:03 PM

What if we printed these emails as our letters to the editor?

 

Marisa Breitfeller 11:05 PM

Are you kidding? That would be an absolute cop-out. We’d basically be getting a whole article for no work.

 

Marisa Breitfeller 11:05 PM

LET’S DO IT.

Funny? Not Funny?
