I think so. I really enjoy the Goober-ads for Techsmith. But I wonder how
the author of the "Dan the Technical Writer" ads feels about Goober's cute
parodies? Technically :-) parodies are a protected form of free speech, but
I suppose the Dan author might feel that s/he isn't paying good money to see
those carefully-crafted ads parodied for free. If so, I think this is a
reasonably legitimate objection (nothing to stop Goober sending those of us
that love them his parodies offlist). If the Dan author raises no objection,
however, I hope Eric will continue to allow Goober to lighten our sad and
crazy days.

Yes, it's Monday and I'm depressed, why do you ask?
