Who is Ted L. Nancy?

He's a superstitious Vegas high-roller who wants to gamble at a casino in his lucky shrimp outfit...

He's the genius inventor of "Six Day Underwear"...

He's a stage actor who only travels while dressed as a stick of butter...

He is, in reality, a twisted prankster--a supremely off-kilter alter ego who sends patently ridiculous letters to corporate honchos, entertainment conglomerates, national publications, politicians, celebrities and heads of state. His innocent requests, queries, complaints, demands, and suggestions are so absurd it is amazing they fool anyone--but often the deadpan responses he receives are even more hilarious:

"Dear Mr. Nancy, It is not often that we receive such enthusiastic support for the paper bag." --The Paper Bag Council

"On behalf of Greyhound, there should be no problem traveling while in your butter costume." --Greyhound Bus Lines

"I look forward to working with you to create a better future for this great nation." --Vice President Al Gore

Letters From A Nut is an insanely inspired, truly madcap collection of Nancy correspondence, a wet-yourself-in-a-public place funny aggregation of official--and officially certifiable--requests, complaints, fan mail and questions that could not possibly have been taken seriously...but, amazingly, were.

A collection of letters to various people and enterprises along with their response. Pretty funny. Worth reading if you are interested.
