Another friend has a few nice words for Carl.


Hey, I can't help but notice the light on our own answering machine is blinking. Here's another message that was left for Carl.

TOM HANKS: This is Tom Hanks with a new Complete The Limerick game. Limericks are often a hassle. The punch lines can be rather crass-le.


HANKS: We'll all miss the voice, but we have no choice but bid adieu to old Carl - hmm.


HANKS: I think it might be Blasell?
