Wiseacre Acre


Every year they surface in the Reader's Survey: the kids who gave the teacher hell, who grew up to become hecklers in comedy clubs and talk back to cops when they get pulled over. Or maybe they're novice smart-alecks, chirping up with a tentative third-finger salute to authority from the safety of a write-in response. Anyway, whoever they are and however long they've been mouthing off, we love 'em come ballot-counting time. They break up the fearsome monotony of making hashmarks on tally sheets and give the Metro worker bees something to buzz about during those long hours. Here are a few of the more colorful responses that flooded our mailbox this year.
