Dear Sarah,

Thank you for your submission "What do octopuses eat?" to the Journal of Universal Rejection.

Your poem showed masterful use of syntax, punctuation, commas, typing, English words, pretty much everything; unlike this sentence here.  Also I learned a lot about octopi. 

We are rejecting your work, because everyone knows it's octopi.  Oh wait, I just learned it's octopuses.  No, wait, octopodes.  Here is a video interlude:

So I am rejecting because, as a mathematician, I've decided it should be spelled octoπ.

Best regards,
