I was just researching something completely unrelated and came upon this. Thought you all might enjoy a laugh.

Have a nice Sunday...

Thank you! Those car talk guys have a whole "hall of fame/shame" Dec 9, 2007

Thank you for a great break.
Am trying now to resist reading all the entries in their "hall of erudite letters..."
The letter to from an applicant to NYU is a little more my style.

Excellent Dec 9, 2007

Thanks for the much-appreciated laugh on a Sunday afternoon.

I needed it, otherwise swamped here with the as-usual-we've-left-it-to-the-last-moment Christmas countdown avalanche of work from Dutch and Portuguese lawyers.

Roll on the 24th .....!

That has made my Sunday a whole lot brighter!! Click and Clack, the Tappit brothers, are the funniest guys in America, but that letter takes the cake!

Thanks, Paty!!!!
