OK We're doing a poll

On the "Which Tarot Card Would You Be?" post below, Stewart Sternberg of the way cool House of Sternberg blog postulated that more creative "What Would You Be?" tests might be possible.

I've set his suggestions up as a poll at left. It's informal and non-scientific, but which would you most like to take?

If you vote, maybe Stewart will send you a picture of a radish. (He has a post about strange pictures he used to send in e-mails.)

Maybe a future poll could be a fill-in-the-blank variety.

What is the strangest thing you actually received in the mail in a letter from Chicago writer and moving-target blogger Wayne Allen Sallee? (Pictured at left is Wayne as his fictional character:The American Dream.)

If you received snail mail from Wayne at any time in the '80s or '90s, you know what I'm talkin' about.

If not, well let's just say Wayne used to pack interesting things into his envelopes.

I have wondered if someday I might get a body part from Wayne.

I am honored, Sidney. Honored. I will gladly send all blog participants radishes. Or pictures of my body parts, if they so desired. As long as they specify which body part.

Hmmm, I'm the only one who has voted for the body part question. Why would the road kill answer beat me out 3 to 1? I don't get it.

I recall receiving a photocopy of Wayne's mangled arm in the mail, along with a cheerful note, of course. I think it was from the time he was hit by a bus.

Wayne sent me the little rubber pressure-nipples from a set of his discarded arm braces.

Along with a LOT of stuff like what Beth described.

Good ol' Wayne-eee-oh...

Man, just goes to show you the electronic age has robbed us of the grace and elegance of the letter.

rubber pressure nipples. I love those new fangled things. So much better than normal nipples. They last longer.

Wayne sent me a lot of strange stuff over the years, but the one I remember most was a copy of a Chicago Police report detailing the murder of some poor nurse outside Cook County Hospital. I think I fussed at him for that one.

I once got a copy of a x-rated comic. I think it was called "Detective Wendy Whitebread: Undercover Whore"
