i find the continual use of "Mr. Blank" to be so weird. was it supposed to mean "Mr. ______"? as in "i didn't have a valentine prepared for you specifically, so here's a random one made out to 'anyone' that you can hopefully enjoy"?
No, his name really was Peter Blank. He was an elementary teacher in Freeburg, Illinois. But it you're right, it does have an odd sound to it.
