Seen this around a few times, and finally lifted it to post. ;) [Aug. 12th, 2007|06:00 pm]

A father passing by his son's bedroom was astonished to see that his bed was nicely made and everything was picked up.

Then he saw an envelope, propped up prominently on the pillow that was addressed to "Dad." With the worst premonition he opened the envelope with trembling hands and read the letter.

Dear Dad,

It is with great regret and sorrow that I'm writing you. I had to elope with my new girlfriend because I wanted to avoid a scene with Mom and you. I have been finding real passion with Stacy and she is so nice. But I knew you would not approve of her because of all her piercings, tattoos, tight motorcycle clothes and the fact that she is much older than I am. But it's not only the passion...Dad she's pregnant. Stacy said that we will be very happy. She owns a trailer in the woods and has a stack of firewood for the whole winter. We share a dream of having many more children

Stacy has opened my eyes to the fact that marijuana doesn't really hurt anyone.We'll be growing it for ourselves and trading it with the other people that live nearby for cocaine and ecstasy. In the meantime we will pray that science will find a cure for AIDS so Stacy can get better. She deserves it. Don't worry Dad. I'm 15 and I know how to take care of myself. Someday I'm sure that we will be back to visit so that you can get to know your grandchildren

Your Son John

P.S. Dad, none of the above is true. I'm over at Tommy's house. I just wanted to remind you that there are worse things in life than the report card that's in my center desk drawer

I love you
Call me when it's safe to come home.


And proof that ya'll are more random then me. This is one of your fellow randomposters video. ;) Made me grin.

Any of the rest of you have videos to share? Post 'em!

Oh my god, thanks for this post. I flashbacked to a letter that cracked me up the first time I read it in a 1968 New Yorker magazine stacked in my parents' attic. I was probably around 19 when I read in the first time. It left enough of an impression for me to clip it, and photo corner it for my scrapbook.

This is the link to it:

That's really something. I can't believe the racism in that letter. My jaw did the actual dropping thing you see in cartoons. lol.

That's really something. Thanks for sharing!!

In response to a book I found called "Why Marry Jewish" and the letter to someone sharing my name at the end of the book, a friend and I composed this and sent it to the author.

Dear Mr. Kornbluth,

I stumbled across your book and noticed there was a letter to me from my
father in the back. This threw me for a loop since I was not Jewish. I
called my dad and yelled at him for insisting that I date Jewish, when
I'm not even Jewish (and for not telling me that I was Jewish all these
blasphemous years). I was also angry that he didn't tell me directly,
but instead waited for me to find this book. He pretended not to know
what I was talking about, but the evidence was plain for me to see. Now
we haven't talked for a year and a half. Why are you trying to tear
apart my family?

I began to feel disgraceful, so I tried dating a Jewwess. She was nice
but she would not marry me because she didn't believe that I was Jewish
due to my strong Hawaiian features and obviously Japanese name and
uncircumsised genetalia. Oy vey! Do you have any love advice for me,
since I don't know where I fit in to the whole Jewish dating scene anymore?

Please write soon. I am wandering in the desert like so many Jews
before me.

oh, the friend I wrote this with was very Jewish and I actually spent a lot of time with the Jewish community at school, so it wasn't completely random...

YES!!! YES!!! Finally! Thank you ever-so-deeply!

I'm curious, though: were you going for the "when he least expects it" appeal, or do you actually have that much of a backlog on what to post each day?

Either way, your publicity comes much-appreciated.

*grin* That much of a backlog I'm afraid, on the system where it was saved.

But when the least expects it thing is totally true of me too. hehe. ;)

Thank YOU for sharing! :)
