And have you met his lovely wife, Get?
Yet another gem from Democratic Underground, this screen capture is from "The O'Reilly Factor." Check out the name and the town. Yes, this was on national TV!! Bart Simpson would indeed be proud. Finest moment: according to DU, Bill O'Reilly then continued to make references to "Mr. Mehoffer." If only I had seen that (of course, that would have entailed actually watching his show, so maybe not).
In the interest of not jumping the gun on tongue-in-cheek DU observations, I did a little quick research myself. Mehoffer IS, in fact, a real last name! Jozef Mehoffer (1869-1946), for example, was a Polish painter. This incident proves one of two things: either the letter was the work of a slick prankster, or someone with connections to fine art and culture watches Bill O'Reilly's show.
I'm going with the prankster.
