"A Discouraging Word"
(More from a weird friend)
Will Campbell sends me things like this almost every day.
I don't know how much of it he thinks up,
and how much he steals.
It's hard to tell because he's pretty funny even in person.
I've seen him walk on stage and tell the audience:
"You don't have to treat me with respect. I'm not used to it."
Today I got his "Things To Do" list.
1. Teach a ferret to yodel.
2. Go to the post office to see if I'm still wanted.
3. Floss the cat.
The cowboy says:
"Those are the mangiest, scroungiest,
most moth-eaten miserable beasts I have ever seen."
A buffalo says:
"I think I just heard a discouraging word".
