I have spent the past 25 years in the field of health care and working with chronic depression. The two "Letters From a Nut" books have broken ground in the field of comedy and healing. I have used the books with many patients who have laughed so hard that they forgot about their pain. What a great gift this nutball comic genius has given to the world. Ted, you can't even begin to know the impact that you have had on us all. Laughter heals, and you sir are a genius. I can't wait for the next book. Please don't laugh, but I was once attacked by a woman with a shrimp fork. I lost.

If you have never read any of Ted L. Nancy's "Letters From a Nut" series, picture The Jerky Boys or Crank-Yankers in written form. Nancy's way-out letters to celebrities, corporations and government offices are a laugh riot.

This particular book is my personal favorite of the series, and topping this collection are the priceless rehabilitation suggestions he recommends to several correctional institutions. He also writes a hysterical letter to The New Orleans Saints Chief of Security citing concerns that his resemblance to our 21st president Chester A. Arthur might require tighter security when he attends a game in New Orleans.

I consider myself a tough sell when it comes to written humor, but three sources that double-me-over are Jon Stewart, The Onion, and Ted Nancy's "Letters From a Nut" books. It has been awhile since we've seen a new addition to this series, and I certainly hope that Mr. Nancy has not put his pen to rest. He has a mischevious gift!

I am a big fan of Seinfeld, and after reading the first installment of these books (See My Review) I had to get the second one. Seinfeld writes the introduction to the book, but after reading this second one, I am sure he is the true author. There is nobody else who could think of such wild and outlandish stories.
Again, as America's favorite pen-pal, Ted L. Nancy writes to hotels, governments, cities, casinos, and the military. He wants to know if he can graft his big toe onto his nose, why his wife left him while he was in a coma..for another man in a coma, and if he can consummate his marriage in the administrative office of the chapel. He writes to hotels telling them he eats his mattress, and is a chronic kleptomaniac. He writes to casinos to ask if his band the "Fat Beatles" can perform and if he can stay in their hotel dressed as a bladder.
As funny as Mr. Nancy's letters, the dead serious responses are often funnier. The casino manager things the "Fat Beatles" are a great idea, and the military would love to have his one man show about Yoko.
This book is laugh out loud funny. It is best read aloud with family members or friends so they can join in on the fun. Buy this book and you will laugh very hard.

I laughed until my face hurt... and then I finished the first letter. I had to put this book down and take a rest because there were too many painfully funny parts.
Some letters are a bit disturbing or slightly disgusting, but on the whole, the thing that might turn you off about this book is Ted's randomness. I found myself thinking, "How does he have time to do all this?" and "How does he come up with this stuff?" If this type of humor intrigues you (as it does for me), I highly reccommend it.

If you want to get a bunch of people laughing then read "More Letters From A Nut" to them. I had some friends over for Thanksgiving and we spent an afternoon passing around this book and reading it aloud. You know what? We turned the TV off for awhile and did it the old fashioned way like they did 100 years ago. We got a book and enjoyed it.

I have just one one word for this book: Hilariously Funny As Hell. JS does it again writing as his alter-ego - I just love these books - the letters, the replies and the smell of the book - mainly because I keep it in the fridge next to some strawberries.

I really love this book series, but wish the stigma of "crazy" "nutty" or "wacko" wasn't part of the marketing. The letters are wonderfully best when they are played straight with a comic absurdity. They are truly laugh out loud hilarious as are the serious responses from those Mr. Nancy writes to. When there's an emphasis of making fun of medication, mental illness, or using stigmatizing phrases or words, it's not funny anymore.

Ted L. Nancy, if that is his real name, has assembled a collection of letters that are absolutely hysterical. His thoughts are incredibly meandering, and his requests from corporate America are pants-droppingly funny. From his letter to the Coca-Cola company asking for permission to sell "Kiet Doke" to the query to the Golden Nugget asking if they'd found his bag of otter hair, Ted Nancy had me in stiches. He writes in a completely original medium that leaves me in hysterics after just a few pages. If you like Dave Barry, you'll love this book. I seriously look forward to reading his next contribution.
