Dear Gordon Ramsay,

I have this friend and he likes you a lot for some reason, but Canadians also like poutine, so I wouldn't take too much stock in this! This guy does all kinds of favors for me for no reason at all really (I don't pay him to be my friend). I thought I would try to do something nice and get an autographed photo for him to frame and cherish forever.

Can I get you to make out a photo to Anthony Imperioli and send it to the address above? I'll make sure he gets it. You can say whatever you like on the picture, since I'm fairly certain Anthony can't read.

Dear Christopher,

Thank you for your letter to Gordon dated 1st September 2010 which has been passed to me for reply.

I apologize for our extremely delayed response. I can only imagine that your letter got lost in the system, as we are usually much more efficient.

Gordon is delighted to hear that your friend, Anthony, is such a big fan of his.

Please find enclosed a signed photograph for Anthony from Gordon which we hope he will like.

Yours sincerely,


Jennifer Aves-Elliot
Executive Assistant

Even the Queen didn’t take as long to respond as Gordon Ramsay did. I understand though; he’s a busy man. He now holds the record of longest time to get a reply from someone that still wrote back.

Mr. Ramsay followed the instructions in my letter perfectly. I don’t think anyone can read what he wrote. I’m pretty sure Anthony can’t.

I’m currently working on a project I am calling “Jackass Letters: Governors and Premiers” which is already fully funded on Kickstarter. I could really use some additional support! When I am done with that I plan to work on "Jackass Letters: The Anthony Imperioli Letters" which will mostly be one man’s love for another man he’s never met...documented in letters. A bromance for the ages. I also plan to work in plenty of biographical details that may or may not be true.

I hope you're enjoying getting these letters. If not you can always unsubscribe.
