Dear Sir or Madam:

Congratulations! You are a winner in our "ATLANTIS: guess the
swedish fish contest"! Your guess of 516 was just 2 away from the
correct answer of 518. For your outstanding swedish fish counting
ability you will find enclosed six movie passes.

Thank you for participating and we look forward to seeing you at
the movies.

Sincerely,

Scott Hetrick
Manager
United Artists Emery Bay 10

Tom:
I am most impressed with your award. How on earth did you do it? Of course you have spent a lot of time in schools and hence know how to count them ...

Rod:
It's a long tale. First I tanked up in a nearby dive (the band was playing "Salmon Chanted Evening"). The girls wanted to go to the movie theater but I didn't, and I tried to get off the hook by whining, "I've got a haddock." "Abalone!" they scoffed. "You're just being shellfish." So I took the bait and went with the flow. When we saw the swedish fish I was bowled over and couldn't fathom any way to guess the number, but I guess I scaled that one. I never expected to win but when the letter came we broke open the bubbly and had a whale of a celebration!

Tom:
I think the whale of a celebration was certainly justified--even if your guess was merely a fluke.
Rod

August 9
Tom:
That award looks more like sweetish fish.

Tom:
You are the SOLE of wit! Absolutely without PIER! A real RAY of sunshine. Don't ever CLAM up. If your career ever FLOUNDERS, you could make it as a card SHARK, or maybe a BASS player.
