The Second Email We Sent Today
Good morning! The first email we sent out today was the HMM WEEKLY PREMIUM NEWSLETTER, now distributed strictly to the members, supporters, and patrons of Hmm Daily. If you're getting this, and if we configured our email account settings right, you are on the Hmm Daily mailing list but not among our members, supporters, or patrons. We're glad to correspond with you regardless, but if you'd like to read the full HMM WEEKLY PREMIUM NEWSLETTER, please join our paying community. Thank you for your interest!
Hmm Weekly readers are now up to No. 7 in our series of 19 Folktales, "The Frog and the Beetle."
Although we have reserved our newly written newsletter content for HMM WEEKLY, we present here for your diversion a joke from The Toaster's Handbook compiled by Peggy Edmund and Harold Workman Williams, third edition published 1921 by the H.W. Wilson Company, and now in the public domain:
"How fat and well your little boy looks."
"Ah, you should never judge from appearances. He's got a gumboil on one side of his face and he has been stung by a wasp on the other."
LAST WEEK ON HMM DAILY
Hmm Daily is a website in the Civil Network, offering commentary and news and other things. These emails are written by Tom Scocca, the editor of Hmm Daily, and Joe MacLeod, the creative director.
