Sometime last week, I’d thrown up a link to this brilliant letter Groucho Marx wrote when Warner Brothers hit him with a notice of copyright violation.
A more contemporary master is Australian humorist David Thorne [website] — I’ve been a fan since the time he responded to a bank notice about settling an overdrawn account by submitting the drawing of a spider. More recently, some unsuspecting bloke moved into an adjacent building and decided to have a housewarming party — and by the time David was done with him… never mind, read.
And now he’s topped his own standards, in this exchange with a landlord who didn’t know just what she was getting into when she sent him a reminder that he was not allowed to keep pets in his apartment. Statutory Warning: Don’t read at work, especially if you are the kind with a very loud laugh.
