What if you wrote to the Baseball Hall of Fame offering to donate a full set of Mickey Mantle's toenail clippings? Why, they'd be glad to have 'em--even if you are "a Level 4 bed-wetter." Cooperstown is only one of many institutions terrorized in Letters from a Nut, a collection of crazed correspondence by Ted L. Nancy. The name is a pseudonym, perhaps for Jerry Seinfeld, who wrote the introduction. Seinfeld never comes clean, but the yocks sure sound like his material. And the letters have his prints all over them--who else would write the L.A. Lakers posing as a rabid fan who wears pants with a see-through back end, "for medical reasons"? Whoever wrote it, the book's a real lark. Where else can you meet "Pip, the Mighty Squeak," a man who gambles in a giant shrimp costume, or a corn that looks like Shelley Fabares? Only inside the fevered brain of Ted L. Nancy--whether he's Jerry Seinfeld or not.

"An unending stream of some of the most hilarious exchanges I've ever read. Everyone I lent this book to just read it and laughed out loud like I did. It's so simple, yet totally inventive. I'm sure some sort of mail fraud charges could be brought to stop this man but, personally, I hope they never catch him."

The great thing is you can pick them up and read a little and put them down to return later since they are separate letters. Easy to pick up for a little entertainment and then come back for more without having to remember a story or where you were in a novel.
I have taken these books on road trips and read the letters to the passengers in the car and we laugh till our stomach hurts!! LOL
laughing at some of the articles in this book. Maybe it is my sick sense of humor but
I dont think so. It is so funny I wanted to share it with the people I ride with on
the bus so they could see what I was laughing at. I loaned this book to several people now
and they thought it was funny as well.
This would be great for a depressed person. It will make you laugh.
