The Query Version of Pulling Pigtails

(alternate text)You remember when you were a little boy? And the best way to show you had a crush on a girl was to tease her, make fun of her braces, put bugs in her lunch, and pull her pigtails?

The always enjoyable Miss Snark presents a query letter written by an author who is clearly still in that pre-teen phase. This misguided, but humorous, query features everything except a double-dog dare. Or maybe the writer learned the powers of reverse-psychology by watching Saturday morning cartoons. I don’t think this kind of thing would even work on Scoobie Doo.

Unless you threw in some Scoobie snacks, which clearly, this query lacks.
