Big Dan Cooper says ‘Arrgh!’

This forwarded e-mail from S.C. House Ways and Means Committee Chairman Daniel T. Cooper, a very important and dignified gentleman, was in my folder last night, but seeing as how I’m on vacation, and was at the moment more interested in trying to find a good, used pick-’em-up truck at (shameless product placement there), I didn’t open it.

This morning, back at the coffee shop that is a front for a perfectly legit bakery (there was a modest line of puzzled, but well-behaved, folk at the counter a moment ago wondering why they weren’t being served, while the counterman was very busy back in the bakery dealing with deliveries), I did read it, and got a smile, and now pass it on to you:

    So in your blog headline you call him “Danny” yet again. That’s downright disrespectful, and, accordingly, puzzling.
    What did he do to chafe you?

    Nothing. I thought it funny. I thought HE would think it funny, too.
    But lest anyone else take it the way you did, I’ve changed it. The headline no longer reads, “Danny Cooper says Arrgh!”
