Cranial.com - Will Hertes' Letters
Will Hertes is a inquisitive guy. He likes to write letters to companies asking them questions
no one else would contemplate. He wrote Jack in the Box fast food restuarant and begged the
customer service folks to send him a couple of Jumbo Jack burgers in the mail, since he doesn't have access to
them where he lives. Then he tried to convince Nike to design a shoe no one would steal, so he wouldn't
have to worry about being mugged for his footwear. The great thing about this site is that Will republishes
his letters and their letters in return so you can see the entire discussion as it progesses.
laugh when you read his letter to Juggler's World magazine about juggling humans.
