Henry Tastic – Staring At The Sun

This month’s letter comes from Henry Tastic of Bread, Nebraska. Henry writes:

Dear Derwood,

Is it true that if I stare at it hard enough, the sun will give me magic powers? So far all I have acquired is blindness. It’s pretty good but I would not call it magic.

Henry Tastic.


Dear Henry,

This rumour has been around for some time. No, the sun will not give you magic powers no matter how long you stare at it. You are thinking of the Holy Grail and not staring at it but drinking from it. I can see how this mistake may have been made, unlike you who can now see nothing.

Your pal,
