Hello Mr. Amphipoda? Is that your real name?
Anyway, I just wanted to thank you for giving
my kids a ride in your boat-car. My son started
bugging me to buy one ever since he got home.
He became so damn insistent that I had to actually
gag and ground him. He had been told that he may
no longer mention the topic in this household ever
again. Unfortunately this morning we found he
had managed to escape his bindings and has run
away from home, no doubt to join the local Navy
Amphibious unit. Perhaps a happy ending after all.
Our daughter, on the other hand, was so damn
traumatized by the experience that she hasn't
spoken a single word since you drove her into the
water. What on earth were you thinking? For
God's sake man, these were normal well adjusted
children before they met you and that... that damn
boat-car of yours. Perhaps the fault is not entirely
yours, maybe I too should share in the blame for
not being there. I suppose I'll miss our son from
time to time and not hearing my daughter's voice is
a mixed blessing, despite her intensive psychiatric
therapy and anti-depressant drug bills. Such is life.
So in closing I just wanted to thank you again for
the incredible effect you and your boat-car have
had on this family. No other single event, since
my x-wife ran off with my brother's son, has so
throughly enriched our lives.

Yours Truly,
Mr. W. Allen


Dear Mr. Allen,
Hey, don't blame me! I had a great time til your
son made a move on his sister in the backseat. I
guess our Amphicar inspires more than just smiles
in your "close-knit" little family.
