A Note From Carl

I got a letter from our page mascot Carl Wintergaten in my lunchbag for work. It goes...


I know it must be weird to have a penguin for a pet. but you can imagine how I must feel being in new surroundings. It's actually pretty cool, pun intended. After escaping from Seaworld after jumpng thru The Man's hoops all day, I decided to break away and enjoy my freedom. I had a distrust of all men until I met you. You seemed pathetic enough that I knew I was safe. You turned out to be a pretty nice guy after all.

"Anyway, I noticed that you've been stressed out from putting together Samapalooza, or whatever it is you're calling it. I was looking over all the paperwork you have and everything looks fine to me. The bands are all booked and they can't wait to play. All your friends can't wait to show up on April 2nd to see how it all turns out. This is why you shouldn't worry. You have friends. More than you know. I know you'll well. And, if you don't raise all the money that day, just know that you're doing the best that you can and that if you fall, you have people there who'll pick you up. I'll try, but it's hard to pick up a guy with wings.

" I hope you have a good day on the air. I packed you a sardine and peanut butter and sardine sandwich. If you don't eat it, bring it home. Stay chill. You'll be fine.

Your Penguin,
Carl Wintergarten"

Everyone should own a penguin.

Wow! You are SO lucky to have such a wise pet. Yeah, penguins are SO much better than cats!
Keep up the good work and do what the penguin says... 'cept, I wouldn't eat that sandwich if I were you...
