The only thing that could make this any more creepyweirdfunny is if it was hand-delivered by a cleaveage-baring dragon wearing a Jim Kern jersey whilst talking in a sing-songy Australian accent.

I get some crazy stuff. Nothing beats this one. In my mailbox at the Dallas Observer yesterday I got a postcard.

Initial reaction: "Kewl."

Post-examination reaction: "What the WHAT?!"

And I quote ...

Mr. Whitt ,       11-19-09 (circled, in purple)

Re: Rumortorium? (boxed, highlighted with purple horizontal shading and vertical stripes)

Ia) If (shaded in blue) the Dallas Cowboys sort of cross-pollinate (underlined in blue) Calvin ["#35- Counselor"] Hill within Jerry's organization, What puzzles me is that the Craig Mortons & Larry Coles (underlined, in purple) aren't given the opportunity of keeping up with the Joneses -; put #14 & #63 (bedazzled/bolded in purple) into the Cowboys' Sing-of-Fawner (underlined, purple).

   b.)Cornell Green, ditto!.George Andre? (underlined, purple)

II. Does Babe Laufenberg (underlined, purple) also, hmm, remind you of....Scooby-Doo ?(shaded, baby blue)

III. If the Rangers Were to bring back ^dentist Clint Herzog's pa, Whitey (underlined, purple), as, say, "Stop-Gap Emeritus"...then maybe["Jerry Lewis-lookalike"]Rudy Jaramillo's pending departure won't be so vacated-vacuumlike?"Promote"Gaylord Perry...to be here.

But wait, there's more ...

No name. No nothing. There's a Dallas postmark on the card, which originated in 2000 in San Francisco.

Oh, yeah, the postcard itself? Glad you asked.

It's a West Highland White Terrier. What else would it be, silly?

Keep the Dallas Observer Free... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism.
