LETTERS FROM A NUT

Letters from a Nut by Ted L. Nancy

Letters from a Nut by Ted L. Nancy

Several years back, I was watching Jay Leno, and Jerry Seinfeld was a guest. During the interview, Seinfeld pulled out this book, which he explained consisted of wacky letters written by some guy he knew to various people and organizations. The funniest part is how many of the recipients seriously respond to these utterly insane letters.

On the show, he read one where the author writes to the Los Angeles Lakers to alert them about his special condition which requires him to replace the backside of his pants with cellophane causing complete exposure. He wonders if the Lakers will require a doctor's note in order to allow him to cheer on the Lakers. This was enough to get me giggling, and on another day soon after when I was particularly depressed, I read a couple more of the letters in a bookstore and was hooked. It had me laughing out loud for hours. Since then, almost everyone I have shown the book to has laughed out loud, from a classmate right in the middle of a med school lecture to a coworker who actually had to leave the room because she was laughing so hard and couldn't take hearing another letter.

There are a couple things in the book that, being a Seinfeld fan, tip me off that these letters were actually written by Jerry. This possibility has been the subject of some controversy within the Seinfeld community over the years. I am sure that the letters and responses are real because my ex-girlfriend's father worked at one of the companies written to and he actually knew the person whose response letter was in the book and confirmed that it was a real person at the company. Regardless, if you share my sense of humor at all, then these letters - from the Siamese Twins writing to the Chairman of Kinko's asking for a job to the guy who wants to bring over 2000 red ants to his hotel room - will have you rolling.
