Synopsis

Ted L Nancy continues his gently surreal correspondence with the great and the good. His hilarious and bizarre letters - as before with unusual queries, complaints and requests - not only manage to fool many recipients into starchy and strait-laced answers but in some cases elicit equally hilarious, tongue-in-cheek replies. Ted writes to ask a certain soft drink giant if it's okay to sell his own 'Kiet Doke' brand of soda (in case it harms their sales) and contacts a restaurant to ask if he can bring his own waiter, as 'he brings me my soup hot and my salad with just the right amount of dressing'. That Ted can bring out people's welcoming and hospitable side with a letter detailing the problem of the permanent squeak he suffers when walking is a tribute to his unique style. Innocent as it is at turns outrageous, More Letters from a Nut is totally enthralling and painfully funny: 'Dear Mayor's Office: I want to give back to the community. I want to stage the play "Romeo and Juliet" using otter. There will be no racy scenes but some holding. Otters will play Romeo, Juliet, and the others. We will bring the otters out at the intermission to pet. These otters are something to see. They have performed this play many times with only one biting incident.'
