0 Comments 02 November 2012


Our young readers really gave it to us this week. Take this email for Jim H. in Penobscot, ME

Dear Sirs,

Why does your website stink for kids so much? Me and my friends check it out after school almost every other day and all we see are dead people stuff. Get more stuff up there that we can talk about at recess. We love Norman though!


This was just one of many. Well, we hear you Jim and the rest of you little ankle biters. So we sent out a communique to our young readers asking for help. We wanted them to send us their best swindle story drawn from their post Halloween candy trading.  Man, these kids are vicious. But, here you go…
