Patton Oswalt for poet laureate

February 26, 2009 |  8:45 am

In the guise of a tweedy E. Hamish Plumbrick, Patton Oswalt campaigns for the position of poet laureate. The position is currently occupied by Kay Ryan ... but does she know the Five Forbidden Poetic Death Talents? Because Plumbrick does.

So far, Plumbrick is not onto the fact that California has a state poet laureate; Carol Muske-Dukes is safe.
