9780062015105: Little Billy's Letters: An Incorrigible Inner Child's Correspondence with the Famous, Infamous, and Just Plain Bewildered

“Truly funny….Little Billy’s Letters is a delightful literary Ali G….I loved it!”
—Josh Weinstein, former showrunner, “The Simpsons”

“Demonstrates an obsessive dedication to the prank art form that moves me to tears!”
—David Cross, comedian and author of I Drink for a Reason
 
“A masterpiece of mischief!”
—Alan Abel, named “Best Prankster of All Time” by Esquire magazine

Little Billy’s Letters is a zany collection of correspondence and memorabilia from the famous and infamous, responses to the cheeky and hilarious queries of a curious “little boy” named Billy (in reality, a fully grown Bill Geerhart). Fans of the bestselling Letters from a Nut and The Lazlo Letters, as well as Ali G and Borat aficionados, will howl at “Little Billy’s” wickedly, insanely hysterical childish scrawls and less-than-innocent questions to world leaders, Supreme Court justices, celebrities, CEOs, and serial killers…and the truly astonishing answers they elicited!

From the Back Cover:

What do Tori Spelling, the Church of Scientology, and Donald Rumsfeld all have in common?: They -- and many others -- have answered letters from "Little Billy", a grown man with a cache of stamps and far too much time on his hands. Funny, touching, and delightfully quirky, Billy's letters cover a broad range of subject matter:

  • Operation Drop-Out: Considering dropping out of elementary school, Billy writes to serial killers and celebrities seeking their wise counsel.
  • Billy's Law: Which Supreme Court Justice prefers the Big Mac to the Whopper? Who is Janet Reno's favorite crime fighter? What does Robert Shapiro say is the best defense for being framed for murder? Billy finds out.
  • The Making of the Class President: Billy runs for class president and collects "endorsements" from Nancy Reagan, Dick Cheney, George HW Bush, Gerald Ford, Bob Dole, Ken Starr, and Colin Powell.
  • Choosing My Religion: Billy asks representatives from the Catholic, Presbyterian, Mormon, Raelian, Satanic, Scientologist, Hare Krishna and Unification Church (Moonies) what is "cool" or "easy" about their religion.

Presidents, Supreme Court Justices, Celebrities, Heads of Corporations, Serial Killers, Robot Makers, and the NesQuick Bunny have all replied to "Little Billy's" scrawled questions.

About the Author:

Bill Geerhart grew up in Bethesda, MD, in the seventies and eighties and was obsessed with MAD magazine, television, movies, true crime, and crank calling talk radio stations. To the amazement of his high school guidance counselor, he was admitted to several reputable institutions of higher learning, and earned a Creative Writing degree from Emerson College. Geerhart is an expert in Cold War history; his groundbreaking work via his website www.conelrad.com and Bear Family Records have been featured in the New York Times, Newsweek, Vanity Fair, Entertainment Weekly, and on National Public Radio's Morning Edition, the BBC, and many other media outlets.
