From 11:00PM PDT on Friday, July 1 until 5:00AM PDT on Saturday, July 2, the Shmoop engineering elves will be making tweaks and improvements to the site. That means Shmoop will be unavailable for use during that time. Thanks for your patience!
P.S.: Newt didn't sign "fraternally yours," because they're even taking away his membership in the fraternity.
P.P.S.: John's calling the Hoenikkers "illustrious" might be a bit of a stretch. Newt's a midget who flunked out of college, and Frank is wanted by everyone but Dog the Bounty Hunter. Maybe something like "glamorous" is closer to the truth.
P.P.P.S.: Newt doesn't want John to get the wrong impression of him. He doesn't just sulk and pity himself all day long. He has a girlfriend and plans to get married, so he's actually very lucky.
