Dear Fucktard,

I read other books you represent and [insert ingratiating arselicking bullshit] I greatly admire the works you represent.

I am sending you sample chapters of my novel, 'Brown Trousers', because I've already sent it to all the other agents in the book whose names come alphabetically before yours. If you find this submission to be unsatisfactory, please go to hell in the envelope provided.

Yours sincerely,

Matt Paint, impoverished writer Esquire.

Received via e-mail:

Dear Sir or Madman,

I'm sending you my novel, 'Brown Nosers', because.

Fours yaithfully,

Kimberly Clark.
