The dreaded Query letter

Dear Publisher,

I have written a story for you to peruse, while you sit on
the loo.
I hope it moves you, but if not, consider it a replacement for
charmin.

Sincerely,

Kelley Bell

I am reminded of a seminar in Psychology Grad school when I presented a paper on encopresis (pants pooping in children -sadly, the rage at the time) and jokingly said I had thought about typing it on a roll of TP and everyone could read it like a scroll. The professor ( my favorite of all time and a cross between WC fields and Ivan the Terrible) said," Having read your paper, Bob, I am confident that would have been appropriate."
I had no response.
