The Evolution of Vanity
Dear Book Review Editor:
I hope that you found the contents of my book interesting and feel that it should sell very well. I know that it will, and because of this it is possible that mistakes of the first limited printing will makes these books unique and could enhance their value as collectors' items. I am the type of person who; when given a lemon likes to make lemonade with it. I think that this character trait in (sic) evident in my writing.
If you should decide to order, promote and or sell this book, please remind VANTAGE PRESS of their sloppy work and order books free from mistakes. Of course, you may want a few more books with the errors as an investment for the future. I am positive that my explanation of the ENTIRE PHENOMENON will be well received and will become one of the best-ever sellers.
I wish YOU all the BEST. Have a GOOD LIFE. ENJOY!

It has been a long time since we last corresponded. I take you to task for daring to suggest that I don't recall being published in your illustrious magazine. In fact, I challenge you to a duel [I choose the Nerf Arrowstorm - Ed.]. How could I ever forget? Well, enough of this dithering. Let me tell you about the reality based humor that I have to propose to you:
1) Jimmy Carter helped patch up my marriage by building a house in my backyard for me to live in when my wife and I aren't getting along.
May God hold you and yours in the palm of his hand. Shalom, and may the road rise up to greet you.

Dear Sir or Ms:
Almost every man at one time or another has found himself in need of a men's room while driving. Add to this predicament: an unfamiliar or potentially dangerous neighborhood, a large residential area, or a crowded expressway, perhaps bad weather and not having the time or inclination to go out of the way to search for a rest room. "THE CAR JOHN" was designed to solve these problems.
Of course, "THE CAR JOHN" can be used outside the car. With a "privacy cover" (a newspaper, coat etc.) it can be used almost anywhere. Naturally one would seek out a secluded area such as a telephone booth [or a restroom - Ed.].
"THE CAR JOHN" is designed, (patent pend) to be: practical, sanitary, easy to use, safe and inexpensive. Your cost would be $7.20 a dozen.
Hoping you find "THE CAR JOHN" of interest, I am looking forward to doing business with you. Thank you for your time.
"TURN ON THE HOSES!"
Dear Sony Reseller:
Sony Electronics Inc., formerly Sony Corporation of America, shares this concern. Although we believe it would be inappropriate to use our product distribution system to promote this viewpoint. We would, however, ask that you be sensitive to the issue and that you not knowingly resell Sony products for use in nuclear weapons applications, even if that application seems relatively benign, e.g., monitors in a facility or location associated with nuclear weapons systems.
