One of us, one of us

Another Frogtown dispatch from Malcontenter "Markie Post":

I was reminded last night of just how long I've been a freak magnet. There was a sweet, eccentric, hygienically-challenged boy -- bullied by all the other kids -- who had a crush on me all through school. Last night I ran into him at the Cleveland video store. He talked my ear off about how he's now a right-wing Pagan. I said something about how contradictions make people more interesting, which I think he took as some sort of flirtation or declaration of kindred-spiritedness. He suavely said, "You wouldn't perchance be into...Japanese anime, too, would you?" He seemed very crestfallen when I said no.
