First, we wrote a post about Greenland. Then, we sent them the first letter. Here’s letter number #2.
September 10, 2013
Hello, People of Greenland!
I wrote you guys last week and have yet to hear back from anyone. And I’d REALLY like to communicate with someone at your office. It seems that lately Greenland is all I can think about. I am consumed with Greenland. Greenland rocks! (Not to be confused with the TV theme song for the old Drew Carey show. Although I’m willing to rework the lyrics to “Cleveland Rocks” to apply to you guys if you think it would attract more tourists. P.S. Have I mentioned how much I want to come visit Greenland and write a travel review for your country? I’m just waiting for your call!)
Anyway, perhaps it’s because I live closer to the equator than you can toss a cat (not that I would ever toss a cat), but I find myself obsessed with Greenland. And I want to invite some Greenlanders to join the party over at ODNT (my blog mentioned in the first email below).
Thanks again for your time. I’m literally counting the minutes until you write back! (Alright, fine. Not literally. But I’m WAY excited!)
Michele Robert Poche
P.S. Greenland Rocks! (How do you say that in Greenlandic? I want to have bumper stickers made. At least one for me anyway.)

Now, let’s take a look at that old TV theme song, shall we?
Seriously, how hard would it be to dub ‘Greenland’ over ‘Cleveland?’ Sure, the remaining references wouldn’t match up. But if we wanted to change a lot, we’d probably need to contact the original songwriter, Ian Hunter, for his permission. Great musician, by the way. Love him. I bet he’d do it for us.
