Christopher Jorgenson labors under the worst of circumstances. He lives in Des Moines, Iowa. I’ve been to Des Moines. You’ve got to have a sense of humor.
Jorgenson is better known online as Jackass Letters , channeling Don Novello (a/k/a Father Guido Sarducci), who assumed the persona of Lazlo Toth (of Pieta notoriety) as he wrote letters to celebrities, politicians and corporations to tweak them a bit and see how they responded. He explains his schtick:
This site is a site dedicated to examining correspondence with real people and companies. It is part spoof, satire, parody and part criticism. New letters are generally published Mondays at 7:00 AM.
Is my motivation greed? Am I just clamoring after free stuff? No. Free stuff is cool, but I also intend to enjoy the process. I fully expect to enjoy the responses more than any of the swag. Daily I make the trip to my mail box only to see it stuffed with junk mail and bills. I want to look forward to getting mail again.
Remember, he’s from Des Moines. It doesn’t take much to amuse, if you get my drift.
So Jorgenson decided to put me to the test. He sent me a letter, his FUQ’s (pronounced as would be expected from a guy from DM) notwithstanding, to which I responded by an email attachment, since I don’t have to live by his rules and I saved the price of stamp. Would he have the ‘nads to publish it? He then made a dare: He would publish my letter if I would post a drawing that he would send me. He wanted me to put it on the fridge, which I would happily do if it wasn’t for the fact that I still use an icebox. But that doesn’t stop me from showing you the picture anyway.
I dunno, but it’s a pretty good likeness if you ask me.
Your turn, Chris.
