2nd Place In A Pinch

I'm beginning to think that You Know Who is unstoppable.  This time dude didn't take first place, but won 2nd place in a contest by The Pinch, a literary journal from the University of Memphis!

Other Appel publications can be read:
More importantly, do you think you say his name like the fruit?  Or with an accent on the last syllable?

He also looks like he would beat you arm-wrestling. Okay, not you, me. One.

WHY doesn't he have a book deal yet? What's the deal with THAT? I would bet a dollar that it's pronounced "AppEL" accent on the last syllable. But maybe there's a third possibility: "App_" with the "le" being almost silent, sort of French, like.

And he still can't muster a smile.

I think he's awesome. Like him more and more everyday. I'm not crazy about his work, but I am in absolute awe of his energy. More power to him.

And I say it with accent on the last syllable.

Appel. Like lapel. I knew someone in college with that last name, although it was spelled a little differently. And it was pronounced to rhyme with a piece of men's clothing you might put a flower in if you, for example, won every literary prize in the universe. Anyway, she was also a great arm wrestler, landing the guy who went to Yale Law School two years before she did (she wouldn't go near you if you had even a hint of a cold right before exams.) She wasn't actually a bad person at all, just very, very focused.
