Something About Nothing
by Adam Palmer
Something About Nothing is a collection of outrageous letters that use up so much space but make so little sense. Innocent people only doing their jobs are handed letters written by Adam Palmer that ask absurd questions, make irrelevant remarks and give worthless compliments. “Your food is so good that I sometimes wonder if I am eating the food or if the food is eating me.” “When I arrive, could you have seven of those huge balloons ready for me? The ones that are almost twenty feet across. Not the ones that are twenty feet; the ones that are almost twenty feet. It makes a tremendous difference to the lemurs.” Yet, these letters somehow remain sane enough to elicit responses, which are just as enjoyable and humorous. Something About Nothing is filled with letters that say something but will leave you with nothing.
