    He Cant write much of his own material, but has mastered the art of Ctrl-C, Ctrl-V " I went to Hogwarts and can't get a job"

    The little you do on here is only a broad portion of who and what you are, the letter is just a poor synopsis of a movie plot.
    That's a one dimensional look at a satirical article that was not meant to be taken literally. No need to get personal because some one doesn't agree with you, you know. [ but I understand that is your nature] May I suggest you study the works of Quintus Horatius Flaccus, [ AKA Horace], which should give you a better understanding of the genre.
    I’m pretty sure the dinosaurs died out when they stopped gathering food and started having meetings to discuss gathering food

    A bookshop is one of the only pieces of evidence we have that people are still thinking

    Wasn’t a personal attack Bob... was a light hearted example using your own Signature tag line " I went to Hogwarts and can't get a job"

    And my first non-literal response was simply “where’s the humour?”

    Sorry, I should have known better than try to be a deep thinker. Much safer to be on the fringes with the butterflies. [ My experiences in the military should have turned me off deep thinkers, I'm thinking]

    Your comments are all over the shop. You’ve gone from “don’t over think it” to “I was trying to be a deep thinker”.

    And now you think you’re a fringe dwelling lepidopterist......" I went to Hogwarts and can't get a job"

    Make your mind up man!!!!
