Ok, you might have read the post this morning, where I wrote "Was it over when the Germans bombed Pearl Harbor? HELL NO."
I just received this classic piece of email, from a professor at Marquette. I have redacted the name to protect their .. uh .. innocence.

Hello! My name is Dr. xxxxx. First off, let me say that I thoroughly enjoy Cracked Sidewalks, and the terrific job you do with the site.
I am writing regarding your post today regarding Al’s Run. It’s fantastic that the contributions keep rolling in, but I just thought you might want to let your readers know that you were joking when you said the Germans bombed Pearl Harbor – that job was done of course by the Japanese.
Your writing is usually so good that I assume you were joking with that wording, but you didn’t really make that clear to the readers.
Again, thanks for a great and informative site – keep up the good work, and we will see you at the games!
