Thanks, Neil.
Editor, Daily Nexus,

This is in response to Amanda M*****’s letter regarding Drew Mackie’s column in last Thursday’s paper (“Drew Says: Cloning Opens Up a New World of Possibilities - in Bed,” April 29, Daily Nexus).

Joke. Noun. 1. Something said or done to evoke laughter or amusement, especially an amusing story with a punch line. 2. A mischievous trick; a prank. 3. An amusing or ludicrous incident or situation. 4. informal. Something not to be taken seriously; a triviality.

I suggest that Ms. M***** memorize this definition, especially the fourth definition. I think it will cause her less pain and grief in her life if she does. If Ms. M***** seriously believed that Drew Mackie’s column was meant to be taken literally, that he actually literally wanted to clone celebrities for sex, then the joke was on her. Though I have to admit, it was a novel idea. I also suggest Ms. M***** take the time to take that stick out of her ass and then look up the words “satire,” “humor” and the phrase “tongue-in-cheek” as well.

Then maybe next time, she can actually find something worthwhile to bitch about.
