Bob Zaltsberg, editor in chief of The Herald-Times in Bloomington, Indiana, is probably used to criticism. It typically comes with the territory of being in charge. But he probably never managed to piss off a kid this much before.

Zaltsberg received a voicemail on Sunday from a local eight-year-old over his favourite comics being replaced in the latest edition, and to say he was less than impressed would be an understatement.

Zaltsberg spoke to the boy and his mother after hearing the message and assured him that he'd be able to continue to read his comic during the rest of the week, and told her that they'd be using the audio and publishing it online without identifying information, to which laughed and said 'would be fine'.

You can hear the offending part of the message here, or listen to the voicemail in its entirety below. It really is quite the listen.

Adorable, no?

We're much more modern here in, so if you want to call us 'sh*tholes', you can do so via Twitter. We're used to it.
