Six Months

Yankee Pot Roast!
Mmmmm Good!

Well, folks, it’s been a long six months.* It’s been a blast for us and we hope you’ve had some fun too. We’re taking a much-needed “personal day” to sleep off this vicious hangover.

We’d like to thank our many contributors and our many more dear readers. In our six-ish months, the site has gradually evolved into a great, big, sprawling mess, which is what we always hoped it would be. We invite you to spend some time today digging around our archives. Find something groovy you may have missed. And, hey, drop us a line, let us know how you’re doing, what’s up, and how you’re enjoying Fox’s smash-hit new show, “The O.C.” We love that show. It’s awesome.

Before we go, though, we’d like to share with you some quick notes we’ve received from our readers around the world.


Dear Y.P.R.:

Ich mag Ihre Web site. Sie läßt meine Hosen ein Zelt in ihnen haben. Danke für die 6 Monate der Liebe und des Lachens.

Cari Arrosti del Pot di Yankee,

Posso essere criminale sporco ma conosco che cosa gradisco: corta quotidiano inviato buona letteratura sul Internet. Tipi siete impressionanti. Mussolini sarebbe fiero. Gradisco la minestra. Potete ottenermi il numero di telefono di Monica Bellucci?

Ringraziamenti, ragazzi.

Vos personnes sont un dégout, sort stupide. Vous êtes des hommes sans culture ou classez, vos femmes sont grosses et laides, et vos hommes aiment souffler des choses vers le haut. M’ai eu mes souhaits, je prendrais une merde géante sur le visage de chaque Américain. Néanmoins, votre petit site Web rend moi le rire itellement dur humide moi-même. Continuez, mes fils de wayward.

Dear Y.P.R.:

Your awesome Web site makes the world a safe place for Democracy. Every morning, I read it, and Condi explains all the jokes to me. Then I make Cheney explain Condi’s explanations to me. Then I get sweaty and tired from all that hard thinking work, so I go play with my dog for a while. Then I take a nap. Ooh, look! The ice-cream man’s here! Gotta go.

Best wishes,

* This site was put together in early February, 2003, but launched officially on the 26th of that month. Yee-ha.
