Your Reader Postcards Host: Amalgamated Humor Mail Room Guy, Gordon "Gordy" Schwartz.

This picture was taken on Gordy's first day on the job in June, 1968. In the years since, his vim and vigor have been replaced by bitterness and bile.
Gordy was our Disgruntled Employee of the Month in May, 2000. Read his interview here.

Mara also e-mailed the photo at right of her and Cap'n Shifty from her trip. Cap'n Wacky wanted to comment on it. Here he is:

"I notice in her postcard, Mara says she saw an 'imitation' of me. And she's right. That's all Shifty is. A cheap imitation. Look how short he is too! Ha!"

OK, Cap'n relax.

The fine print on the back of the postcard includes "Buffalo Burney says, "Come swimming with me, I'll be wading for you." Sure, his puns stink, but I can't believe that Catalina doesn't promote tourism with the slogan "Holy crap! We've got a talking buffalo!"
