p.s. there is a rhyme for “orange”! My 14-year old son says you can rhyme “door hinge” with the historically rhyme-challenged fruit. I feel so relieved, I mean, in the sense that the word “orange” is no longer alone, without a rhyming friend. If you write “door hinge” in large, black letters during the one segment of your routine where Austin is reading the poem, and a collective, puzzled hush grips the audience, he can hold up the card and, once and for all, prove that there is a word that rhymes with “orange!” Let’s educate the masses, historically and grammatically!!!

You know, 100 years ago they cured such lunacy as you 3 displayed last evening at Chico State with a chic, oyster-colored jacket, with a mid-waist belt, and sleeves that tied around the back! After the show, I still had red, teary eyes from laughing hysterically. I walked into a local supermarket and the clerk noticed my condition. I told her, “I’ve been crying all night.” “I’m so sorry”, she replied. “Has someone in your family passed away?” I said, “No, not at all. I just watched 2 hours of The Reduced Shakespeare Company!” Fantastic job! And my wife thinks I’m nuts! Keep the intellectual humor coming. God knows we could use it! But, then, He knows everything! Bill Collins, Chico State ’71, BA English.
