Dear Mr. Shatner,
I bought a Captain Kirk action figure, but it wasn't anatomically correct. Please send me a replacement.
P.S. - If you can't mail me a new action figure, please send me your picture instead. I've enclosed my picture.
It has always been my desire to be able to speak directly to you who have so generously supported my career over the years. Unfortunately, time and distance make this almost impossible. Nonetheless, I want you to know how very much I do appreciate your letters and your love.
In this world today with so much hurt and strife we need to reach out more than ever to one another, to make the connection, and that's we (sic) try to do through my fan club, Shatner & Friends International, and through my website at WilliamShatner.com. We reach out to each other in friendship. Through the Club we can talk, exchange ideas and I can keep you apprised of my latest activities.
Thank you again for writing and I look forward to continuing friendships. Be happy.
A Note From Weasel Regarding the Reply:
Thank you, Mr. Shatner, for the puppy-sized photo. I'm not sure how joining a fan club will help improve this world today with so much hurt and strife, but you probably know better than I do. I am just a little doggy, and you are a starship captain.
Live long and prosper,

I was a good little girl this year, and what did you leave in my stocking? Bupkis. What's up with that, fat man?
P.S. - I've enclosed my picture. Please send me your picture. It won't make up for the lack of presents, but it's a start.
A Note From Weasel Regarding the Reply:
Thank you, Santa, for the autographed photo. Have you lost weight?

I received two responses in the mail today. The first is from the hilarious stand-up comedian Zach Galifianakis. Remember that name if you can.

Dear Mr. Trudeau,
Your comic strip is more insightful than anything found on the editorial pages of the newspaper, but it doesn't lend itself very well to merchandising. Maybe you should add a cute animal sidekick.
P.S. - I hear Maltese doggies are very cute. You could even name the character Weasel if you wanna.
P.P.S. - I've enclosed my picture. Please send me your picture; or a drawing would be just as good.

Dear Mr. Cruise,
You were very convincing as the Lucky Charms guy in Far and Away. Are you really a leprechaun? You can tell me. I promise I won't steal your gold.
P.S. - Tom Cruise isn't a very good leprechaun name. Did you change it? I think you look more like a Paddy O'Taters.
P.P.S. - I've enclosed my picture. Please send me your picture and maybe a four-leaf clover.

Dear Ms. Hawn,
I'm glad to see that you had your Laugh-In tattoos removed. I hope it wasn't too painful.
P.S. - I also hear you are a Jewish Buddhist. That is very smart of you--more holidays!
P.P.S. - I've enclosed my picture. Please send me your picture, with or without the tattoos.
