Because it IS awesome...

Kid writes most epic letter ever to TV weatherman


A kid in Austin, Texas, became an Internet sensation when he wrote a letter to a local meteorologist.

Flint sent a wonderfully imaginative note to KVUE-TV’s Albert Ramon, thanking the weatherman for visiting his fourth grade class. The note was mailed along with 30 other letters from kids in the same class. Flint’s obviously stood out because Ramon shared the letter on his Facebook page, and then a friend of Ramon’s coworker posted about it on Reddit last week.

Flint’s wacky words quickly went viral popping up on news sites all over the world.

Flint’s letter is filled with images that would make any science fiction writer jealous: unicorns with lightsabre horns, monkeys in bacon tuxedos, and half-platinum, half-gold thrones. How did he possibly think up this stuff? Oh right, he’s a kid and kids’ imaginations are wild and free, although I think Flint’s is “pretty dang sweet.” (George Lucas: Are you reading this?)
 
Here’s a typed version of the full letter for those who can’t read Flint’s handwriting, which is actually quite good, below:


Dear Mr. Ramon,
 
Thank you for coming to our school and teaching us about weather.
 
Some day when I become supreme Ultra-Lord of the universe I will not make you a slave, you will live in my 200 story castle where unicorn servants will feed you doughnuts off their horns.
 
I will personally make you a throne that is half platnum and half solid gold and jewel encrested.
 
Thank you again for teaching us about meteoroligy, you’re more awesome than a monkey wearing a tuxedo made out bacon riding a cyborg unicorn with a lightsaber for the horn on the tip of a space shuttle closing in on Mars while ingulfed in flames … And in case you didn’t know, that’s pretty dang sweet.
 
Sincerely, Flint.
 
P.S. Look on back for drawing.
