The Best Ever Silly Letters

Like me, some letter writers put pen to paper out of sheer mischief.  We like to shake the tree and see what falls out.  Perhaps the best exponent of these silly letters is Terry Ravenscroft whose book ‘Dear Customer Services: Letters from the World’s Most Troublesome Shopper’ is hysterically funny. One of his wonderful letters is included below.

As ever, I am keen to see other examples of well crafted silly letters so please use the ‘Contact Dear Customer Relations’ page to get in touch and paste your letter into the email. Here, I am collecting outstanding examples that have come to my attention.
