Sometimes the hate mail makes this job so much better

October 23, 2009 - 3:06 pm

CityBeat Editor David Rolland received this on Tuesday. Our address was typed on the envelope. Apparently, “Fuck-Head-Ass piss shit” does not like Pearl Jam, me or an inordinate amount of cussing unless he’s doing it. Thought about printing it in our letters page, but just doesn’t work without the fantastic signature.

    He stuck the pen in his mouth and signed it quad style.

      This is pretty funny. Can’t be real, right?

    Are you sure he stuck the pen in his MOUTH?!

    this is the best letter I’ve ever seen written to a writer at CityBeat. Even if it’s a hoax. Brilliant.

      It’s a lot harder to hold a pen with clenched buttocks, so, yeah, I think he signed the letter (which he painstakingly typed) with the pen in his mouth. It was an added touch of seething contempt: I didn’t even let my hand touch the paper while I gave it my mark. It’s a higher level “piss off.”
