And here’s the resulting interview.

      I think all the typos are letters typing on top of each other, such as “ad” instead of “and” and “e ople” instead of “people”.

        Hey,’geniuses’, that was the JOKE, he misspelled in purpose to show how
        ‘great’ the type writer is! he was being ‘sarcastic’, Tom Hanks way! How do you i*** manage to open the internet?

  1. Genie Coats says:

    Whomever can get this message to Tom Hanks, there is a “Pickers’ mall in Concord, North Carolina that has old typewriters. Ir’s in our mountains and is called The Depot.

    I also have a portable Royal which has only caps that I’m ready to let go.

    Anybody interested?
