Amazon review: 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.

I am so excited to have an OBCZ only 1/2 mile from my house! I saw all the books released there yesterday, so I had to go take a peek today. I know where I will be spending a lot of time! The Italian Sodas are great! I, of course, picked up this book while I was there and released some others. This book was on my Wish List, so I am pretty excited to have found it.

I didn't quite find this book as funny as the reviews said it was. It may have been, though, that I figured out that I have read this book before. It was an enjoyable, quick read. I will now make it available for trade or release. Hopefully I will make it to the OBCZ soon and will return it to the shelves there.

I read this book as soon as I received it. Someone had a very strange hobby LOL! I wonder, in this age of automated phone systems and websites, if companies would still even respond to traditional letters (they hardly respond quickly to email!). Thank you Melinda for the laughs - I needed them!
