Dear Sharpie,

You really should come out with scented Sharpies. When you use them as often as I do they can give you quite a headache. I think scented Sharpies would sell way better and be very popular in the high schools!

They get marks for replying, but that signature kills me. If only there were a place Mr. Langone could get a quality pen. Hhhhmmmm!

They gave me a standard red Sharpie®.
