Teacher Joyce Ben-KiKi had Aron and his classmates each send letters to a famous person as part of a language arts lesson. Ben-KiKi wrapped the exercise around well-known children's book character "Flat Stanley," so along with the letters, the children each tucked a Flat Stanley figure they had made into each envelope.Because he is carved from a solid block of CONCENTRATED FUCKING AWESOME. With everything he's been doing on a daily basis for months on end now, he still managed to get this done - because it mattered. Don't shit on my happy by telling me his staffers did it, just let me have this one - aiight, betches?
"I told them not to expect a letter back," Ben-KiKi said. "I told them these people are very busy and most likely will not write back."
The list of recipients was impressive: Yankee third basemen Alex Rodriguez; Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi, Olympic gold medalist Mark Spitz; Republican presidential candidate and U.S. Sen. John McCain.
Obama was the only one to write back.
HAt tip to folk & synecdochic!
