Oooh, this one’s just brilliant. An unknown individual sent a long lost love letter to a biographer writing a book about the poet John Betjeman. The biographer, one A.N. Wilson, then included this letter in his book. It was brought to his attention after the publication of the book, that the first letter of every sentence in the letter spells “A.N. Wilson is a shit.”
Oh la la, can you imagine the patience required, hoping dearly it would be published, rushing to the book shop on the day of it’s release, and then, finally, the rejoice. I think I’d laugh for days… 🙂
Thanks to the chaps over at Freakonomics for this little gem (new window).
