Dear Comrade bg1,
I have been watching your latest trials and tribulations from afar, and must say this to you: Don't let the Monkey-Sheep get you down.
You, comrade, bring light and happiness into Misc, not to mention next year's fashion - surely they should hail you? Sadly though, being Monkey-Sheep, they fail to see anything but each others' tails.
Keep up the good work comrade, and keep showing the Monkey-Sheep how to think. I know it must sometimes seem like an endless battle, but one day they shall worship you as their god - I can guarantee it! After all, Monkey-Sheep always need a god to worship, comrade, and there can be no god higher than you.
With all best wishes from your VLR comrade,
Liddle ol' me.
p.s. I like the moleskin pants
