From the Back Cover

Ms. Barbara Ramey
RALPHS SUPERMARKETS
PO Box 54143
Los Angeles, CA 90054

Dear MS. Ramey:

Thank you very much for answering my letter concerning the haunted sponge I bought from a Ralphs store. Ralphs has been and always will be the only store I shop in for my food and sponge needs.

In your letter to me you said that I would be hearing from the supplier of this songe. I have not heard from them. And this sponge is bad.

Can someone from Ralphs come and get this sponge from me? This sponge is out to get me. I am afraid.

After I got your letter I went down to my basement and locked that sponge in a steel box and put a chain around that box. Then I wrapped that box in tape and put a shackle around that. Then I boarded up the basement door with over 1000 nails. Then I put a manacle on that door. Then I went upstairs to my room to get a good nights sleep.

At about 3 o'clock in the morning I woke up and looked down. That sponge was right by my bed. I am scared. Please help me.

Also, do you sell Brillo at your store?

When will I hear from the supplier? I need to know. Thank you for your reply.

Sincerely,

Ted L. Nancy

More About the Author

Ted L. Nancy is a pseudonym used by Barry Marder. Finally the long national nightmare is over. Jerry Seinfeld unmasked the true author of the "Letters From A Nut" books on Larry King Live and The Today Show with Matt Lauer. (To View: Tedlnancy.com)

Mr. Nancy writes earnest letters to Icelandic malls, German theme parks, Norms Barbershop, shoe museums, waffle cone businesses, and an Indian Casino asking to sell ham sandwiches in their restroom. And publishes them along with their equally sincere but hilarious responses. He does this so that others may enjoy it. His letters include: Telling Ralphs Supermarket he bought a haunted sponge from them. Asking an Amsterdam hotel if he can check in with 300 hamsters for his production of Hamsterdam. And warning the telephone company installer about his Electronic Belching Machine on his patio.

His books on Amazon.com are under Ted. L. Nancy or Jerry Seinfeld. No one else. He has no affiliation with any other books or DVD's except what is on this Author's Page. He is proud that his books are suitable for all ages. Many teachers use them in their classrooms as learning tools for students. Mr. Nancy has moved to Glendale, California to be near the Turkish paranormal community. (of which he has attended a meeting) He does not like olives! Visit his website at tedlnancy.com

Barry Marder is a comedian, former writer on "Seinfeld" and the co-writer of Dreamworks' animated hit "Bee Movie." He was a writer for Bill Maher, Jay Leno, & David Letterman. He has performed at most major theaters in the United States as opening act for Jerry Seinfeld. He has also written with George Carlin.

This book was funny!
Kelley Hunt
The sheer ingenuity of these letters kept me cracking up...sometimes I'd be laughing just to see which business or country Mr. Nancy would target next.

My friends all love the book and we sat around reading the letters outloud for hours.

THIS BOOK IS LAUGH-OUT-LOUD HILARIOUS! With TV and movies it's easy but when was the last time you laughed and cried from reading a book? This book will make you do it! It's a testament to how stupid people are that they actually respond to the letters of Ted L. Nancy (which go from strange to bizarre to absurd).
Some of my favorites:
Ted's letter to the owner of Norm's Barbershop where he says he'll be opening his own barbershop next door and calling it GNORM'S BARBERSHOP. Will this be a problem?
Writing to a wildlife park and telling the rangers he'll be studying the grizzly bears in full bear costume. "If a bear waves and says 'Hello' it'll probably be me."
A letter to a poetry contest with his submission "OH HOW I HATE POETRY CONTESTS"!
The sheer ingenuity of these letters kept me cracking up...sometimes I'd be laughing just to see which business or country Mr. Nancy would target next. The laughs come page after page and I can't recommend this book more highly.

The first Letters From A Nut was lent to me by a friend during a very difficult time in my life and it was very good medicine. Since that time I've bought the book for several people as gifts and produced lots of instant fans. What I've found interesting with this book is the "trail" it leaves--for example: I lent the 3rd Letters From a Nut to my pastor (instant fan), who ended up staying up almost all night with a group of friends (who now call themselves Ted. L. Nancy disciples!) reading it and laughing themselves sick. One of these friends in turn bought the book for his dad, who is a high school special education teacher. His dad loved it so much that he now uses the book as motivation for his students (rewards them by reading letters to them!). It's that good. This is the most creative, ingenious humor I've come across. It will inspire you to think of your own "letters" (my sister in law was tempted to write her state department of transportation for permission to plant corn between the east and west bound interstates). It's the "gift that keeps on giving!"

This book was funny! I was laughing so loudly I am sure my neighbors wondered what was going on in my apartment. Under no circumstances should you attempt to eat or drink while reading this book unless you have someone nearby who can perform the Heimlich Maneuver.

If this isn't the best bathroom book in the world, I don't know what is. You can read a couple of letters, then leave it for the next visit. It is painfully funny. You wonder: 1. How does "Ted" think these up? 2. What is the initial reaction of the recipient? 3. Does the person on the other end of the letter reply in serious or jocular spirit? 4. Is the Tonga Visitors Board preparing for Ted's visit?
God, it is funny! Great "guy" gift book.

7 of 9 people found the following review helpful By Aaron Bossig on September 9, 2000
Format: Hardcover
I enjoyed "Letters from a Nut" and "More Letters from a Nut" a great deal. While this book is extremely funny, and is worthy to stand next to its previous volumes, it isn't quite as good. Whereas in LFAN and MLFAN, Ted L. Nancy had a wild method of writing to various people/companies, in which he would make himself appear to be a real-but-nutty individual, many of the letters in EN:EMLFAN are pure gibberish. I imagine many of the recipients thought the jokes were typographical errors, and not the mark of a wackjob.
In addition, the series of letters which appears to be the funniest is censored for some reason. This is not explained. If Seinfeld decided not to enclose the material for whatever reason, I could understand that, but I wish he would have either provided his reason or omitted the section entirely.
Again, despite its weaknesses, EX:EMLFAN is a very funny book, and I highly reccomend buing it if you enjoyed LFAN and MLFAN.

This book, what can I say about it. It keeps me laughing for hours and always will. I own the first two also and they keep me going with the giggles. It's one of the funniest books ever I personally think. For someone to ask those weird of weirdest questions to people must have too much spare time on his hands, but hey, he must get a kick out of it and so do lots of other poeple.
If you want a funny book that will make you laugh even after you close it and put it away, this is your book.

Format: Hardcover
Ted L. Nancy writes strange letters to random companies in order to get odd responces. He gives a book load of hilarious but short conflicts to laugh about. Nancy pokes and picks at these random executives to exploit them for the laughs of the general public.
Nancy is a comedian who just wants to annoy these companies. He assumes the role of a circus clown, a man who plays a big baby, even a man interested in injecting ham into his blood stream. These are real companies. Of the group: Ruth Chris, Oscar Meyers, the Louisiana Superdome, even Olsmobile were all mailed by the mystery man. The book caused side splitting laughter to anyone who dares to crack the binding. short pages, fun to read, great for school. Overall I'd say Nancyis a hilarious man that makes it easy for the reader toget a laugh. I feel that it could even encourage some kids to do the same.
I would recommend this book to anyone who likes to listen to comedians like Jeff Foxworthy. Actually I would recommend this book to anyone who wants to laugh. This is a fun, light, read, My english teacher says, "It would be a good book to read while going to the bathroom."
