International Call for Nixon's Impeachment

Dear Sir,

I would be very much obliged if you would leave a blank half-inch or so of column below the enclosed petition.

You see me and me mate thort we'd do our public duty in the protection of world morals you know, like Norm Jerk and the Chinese bomb), and set up a petition for the impeachment of Nixon. Signatures to the following petition should be sent to your nearest friendly ambassador, or perhaps c/o 'The Evening Post'. Then, once we get enough signatures going, we'11 sit back and wait for the headlines to break. "International call for Nixon's Impeachment!" We reckon it will be just about as effective as present New Zealand efforts to stop the Cambodia bombing, would probably kill two birds with one stone.

Ta for the co-operation, brother.

Yours in nihilation,

N.R. Kist.

P.S. What's this bloody monstrosity in the caf? Non-economic, non biodegradable, pollutent, plastic drinking straws? Up against the wall!

The Petition.

We, the undersigned, humbly petition the United States Congress, to prosecute with all possible speed, the impeachment of President Richard Nixon, on the grounds of: Malfeisance, Malpractice, Maltexo, Maltreatment, Maladministration, Malnutrition, Maladjustment, Malfunction, and corruption (delete where necessary) — and who knows what he does to spiders? We urge, that for the sake of world morality, you brook no delay in this matter.
