Dear Sir:

I am rejecting your manuscript as unsuitable for our publishing house. We are however publishing the envelope you used to send the manuscript. When Adolfo in the mailroom discovered your envelope, he immediately brought it to Editorial. We've been gawking at it for hours.

Sir, you have a hit!

Pleased as Punch and Judy,
Maxwell Perkins Whiplash, II
