Dear Care Bears,

I am not sure you are aware there are people who call themselves "furries." These are people who like to dress up in anthropomorphic animal costumes and engage in bizarre behaviors (I'm not one of these people!).Anyway, I was thinking you could make lots of money if you came out with a "Furry" line of toys aimed at adults, or even Care Bear costumes for adults that these people…

Dear Toys"R"Us,

Sadly, I look a little like Ted Kaczynski, but I like toys! As a man in my late 30s I feel pretty uncomfortable walking around your store. I can feel the stares of parents wondering if I am there to snatch away one of their precious little snowflakes! Sometimes I feel like this when I go to the kids' section of a bookshop as well, but I know there's nothing you can do about…

Dear FLAVORx, I recently came across your "Pill Glide" product and think you guys are selling yourselves short! If 40% of adults have difficulty swallowing pills think of all the other things that engage the gag reflex! All the time people stick things in their mouths, like toothbrushes, that make them go "yack yack yack!" Confining yourself to just pills makes no sense. As a…

Dear Tiger Woods,

Have you ever heard of a poker player named Phil Ivey? They call him the Tiger Woods of poker, but I think that’s just plain silly. I think they only call him that because he’s good at what he does and black. Well, and he does look a little bit like you, but not that I am saying all black people look the same of anything! Anyway, I read on the internet that he like to play…

Dear Hooters,

I know a lot of people claim they come to your restaurants because of the good chicken wings, but I never hear people say things like this about Pizza Hut. Do you think that's because Pizza Hut's chicken wings suck? I'm guessing so! Personally, I go to Hooters for the great lap dances. I have yet to manage to get one from a waitress, but usually, for a fiver, they will get…

Dear Garrison Keillor,

I would love an autographed photo! I used to think you were funny, but your jokes are just stale and old now. Isn't it time for some new material? Let's retire the whole sponsored by ketchup, making fun of Norwegian's and Lutherans, and powdermilk biscuits and such. You could move on to other food groups, nationalities, and religions! I mean come on, even a bad Jew joke is…

Dear Garden Burger,

Are not food products like your gardenburger bad? These are products made from vegetable matter that are intended to taste like meat! Isn't that disgusting? To me, it seems like people who eat this stuff are wanting to take a principled stand without having the principles. This is the worst kind of hypocrisy in my opinion. I wanted to know yours. Ever think that maybe you are…

Dear StarKist,

I firmly believe in an informed consumer, so have to applaud your dolphin safe policy. I do also happen to believe in giving the consumer a choice. Dolphins aren't an endangered species are they? So why not come out with a line of tuna that may actually even have a small amount of of dolphin in it? I mean if the consumer can save a couple bucks it seems reasonable to me! But…

Dear Dr. Phil,

I think you are a talentless hack. Surprisingly this is working out quite well for me, but I was still hoping you could send me an autographed photo or some other show souvenir. I would like something for my collection of items from failed talk show hosts. Thanks, Christopher L. Jorgensen

Dear Snack Patrol,

the idea of jerky and cheese together sounds wonderful. It’s so obvious that I am surprised no one has thought of it before! I have a great idea for a TV ad. You could have a guy walking down the street one way eating jerky, and a woman walking down the street the other way eating cheese, and when they bump into each other the guy can say, “You got cheese in my jerky,”…

Dear Depend,

You have to admit the one major failing of your Depend products is that they totally lack in sex appeal! Have you ever thought about addressing this? Seems to me a line of super absorbent thongs would be a hot seller! There's a market out there for women with urinary incontinence that is going unserved. This has got to be just an oversight. Or perhaps these exist and I am just…

Dear Scoop Away,

I love your Multiple Cat Formula Scoop Away Super Clump cat litter. I only have one cat, but I am not always diligent about changing her litter. I figure one cat with litter changed less often is like having a lot of cats and changing it a lot. Though there is perhaps an overlooked way you could increase marketing share. I've read your legal disclaimer, so know I can expect…
