Once upon a time Joe was 4 years old and I was 6. Our family lived in Waterloo, IA, and we knew this kid named Matt Mischler who went to oue church. When we lived in Iowa Joe and I did not know what Dude or Dudette meant at all, so every Sunday when we saw matt we would poke him in the belly and say "Dude". After we were doing that for a while 'Dude Matt' said that if we poked him in the belly with TWO fingers we should say "Dudette". So every Sunday we poked 'Dude Matt' in the belly and said either 'Dude' or 'Dudette'.
That is the story of 'Dude Matt!'
Also, Bananna should post on her blog about Alec Baldwin. Yes. :)
