As copies of Humor at the Speed of Life continue to
wash up arrive on both coasts here in the U.S., as well as in countries generally accessible only by boat, so has praise from some of the literary world’s most respected critics. Among them, Nicholas H. Sheltie, who has awarded HATSOL with the coveted Dookie of Distinction Award after calling it:
“Arfuably the best backyard reading I have encountered since my days at the kennel. Inspirational. Three poos up, way up!
Though the notoriously reclusive Sheltie was unavailable for further comment, his press agent, S. Henry DaFrankmann, said “The Dookie of Distinction Award is so coveted because it is handed out with irregularity.”
While rumors have begun surfacing that Sheltie’s decision may have been influenced by bacon treats, DaFrankmann flatly denies the rumors. “I’ve personally tried tempting Mr. Sheltie with every treat imaginable, and he has consistently refused to roll over,” DaFrankmann said. “His handshake is his word. Actually, so is ‘speak.’ But mostly it’s his handshake.”
My thanks again to members of the elite HATSOL Surveillance Team, whose resoluteness is an inspiration to anyone considering a restraining order. Updates on this developing story will be given as information becomes available. Possibly after Sheltie’s next walk…
