    As an angsty teen, I used to write (bad) poetry on slips of paper and leave them here and there. That stopped shortly after I overheard a couple of young women talking about having found one, how utterly stupid it was, and what a loser somebody must be to spend time doing something so dumb.

    No, not because of that. Because I finally found a young lady who was willing to put up with me as a boyfriend. Though they were surely correct about the lack of quality in the poems.

    As long as Pig is getting some excercise, I think we can excuse him for spelling bitter incorrectly.

    A previous Note Man told them things like “B sharp!” or just “B natural”. Sometimes he would leave a note – sometimes a whole note, sometimes only a half note. When I had car trouble, he noticed a change in my voice, “G, I C how A flat lowers your pitch.”

    Tell Noteman (pausing here for trumpet fanfare) to stay out of Afghanistan. He should also stay away from the White House. Apparently our Vacationer-in-Chief has.

    Rat>: “We are sick of Gym Sock Nose Guy. We are so sick of Gym Sock Nose Guy that we could throw up. So you know what, Pig? There’s not gonna be anymore Gym Sock Nose Guy.”

    [grabs and rip off the gym sock from Pig’s nose; yells]

    NO MORE! Ya see what I’m telling you? NO MORE!”

    [ throws gym sock on the ground and angrily jumps up and down on it ]

    " No more EVER! Now what do ya think of that?"

    [ Pig seemingly feels broken-hearted over Rat’s outburst]

    Pig: “I don’t care, because…”

    [changes into a new superhero persona with googles, red shower cap with a white N and cape]

    “I’ve always wanted be… NOTEMAN! Da-Da-DAAAAAA!!!!
