Product Overview

A uniquely British twist on the goofy letters-to-strangers genre, this brilliant compilation chronicles one man''s outrageous and bizarre letters--to trade groups, department stores, clubs, political parties, and a certain children''s book publisher--and the amazing responses he received to his ideas, observations, and unsolicited feedback. Asking countless questions, such as "Would the Campaign for Courtesy be interested in his 10-Point Plan for a Courteous Britain? Could the Ball & Roller Bearing Manufacturers Association contact his "ball-bearing mad" son to suggest that he scale back his 95,000-piece collection? "and "Might Madame Tussaud''s be interested in creating a wax likeness of him in a toga?," the book reveals the courteous and often bemused correspondence between the imaginative time waster and his unsuspecting targets, all of whom only encouraged him further. Hilarious and off-the-wall, this volume will have fellow schemers laughing out loud--and reaching for their pens.
