That could be the first step towards a reformist state.  Or it could be a pointless gesture by petty tyrants.  You know, either one, really.

Send your complaints to the king via the internet!  See?! He cares about you! Your messages are TOTALLY not going into a spam folder on the desktop of some lackey in an office building 10 miles from the palace!

Dear King,

This picture of a man's distended anus offends me. Does it offend you?

Please remove it from the Internet. And also this picture of a man in a bathtub who has done something to his genitals that I am unfamiliar with.

Thank you.

I should write that.  Just send it to the parent's email, and give them some pre-formatted responses to choose from or edit.

And auto-generate Amazon links based on the content.  I should start working on this.

If you were wittier you would've done a 'let me google that for you' though so you lose points for that.

Your Excellency,

I recently visited Medina. It was neither funky, nor cold and, like Mick Jagger said, I [couldn't] get no satisfaction. In addition, that Bedouin woman named "Sheena" is actually a man. Like you, I don't fool around with no Oscar Meyer wiener. Zero stars.

I'll be seeing ya,

My penis is so thick and manly that none of the peasant camels can handle it.  If I may be so bold, I would like to try one of your daughters for comparison.

This ought to be amusing.

Like the White House Petitions site.

I expect they will do a triage of which complaints they print out and give to His Majesty and which they have an underling handle, not to mention which they print out and post on the Royal Break Room Bulletin board for yuks. Among the many, many places I have worked is the Correspondence Unit of a high-ranking Minister of the Canadian Federal Government. I know how government correspondence works and I've seen some samples of the work of classic crank letter writers who have large files with numerous government departments and agencies. I have also drafted replies to letters, memoranda and e-mails from various kooks respected members of the general public.

If you must write a letter of complaint or praise or anything, send it directly to the right person and don't waste the time of bureaucrats copying it to your Member of Parliament or Congress Critter and such, unless you want to make busy work for bureaucrats. If that is the case, thanks. We can always use the work. And keep up the crankery. We all need a good laugh from time to time! You are likely to get a stock letter unless you are important enough to merit a personal reply or have said something interesting or asked questions which need answers. Anything from the press goes straight to Communications to be baffle-gabbed to death.

They had a signature-signing machine at this Minister's Office. It's sort of like a folding clothes rack or toy copying machines. It copies the signature of an official from a template. Of course you can use secure electronic signatures nowadays but some people prefer the old-fashioned way. For one thing, it looks like a real pen-and-ink signature because it is a real pen-and-ink signature. You can even replace the pen between signatures. I used it to sign documents and birthday wishes and the like on behalf of the Minister. It would have been fun to send somebody a fake letter as a joke but that sort of thing is the sort of thing that gets you fired and black-listed for life unless you are very clever and discrete. I've never abused government property like that on account of I is honest and smart.

But it would be fun.


Dear Decrepit Occupant,

My officials inform me that you are 101 years young today. Feck off you fugly old hag! Why aren't you dead already instead of living high off the welfare hog?

Signed (autograph signature) by, HMQ,   Eliza. Regina.



Just the sort of thing I have never, ever done.

I am not fond of practical jokes. They are cruel and when you play them on practical jokers they don't see the humour of it at all.

Aw, you're no fun any more.

Stop it, stop it, stop this post right now!

There has been speculation that Pope Benedict stepped down from his position because the Twitter account the Vatican opened gave him direct access to what people really thought of him and the Church.

Dear King.

Why you let assholes fly planes in our buildings?
Please stop that. We don't know how to deal with it. I mean, we could have attacked your country and said hey, knock it off. But we didn't. We could have spent a few million teaching every man, woman, and child how to disarm any jerk with a box cutter, but we didn't. We could have said,"Nice try, hotshots, but we're America, and we refuse to buckle and give up our rights" but we didn't. We could have done anything outside of burn trillions of dollars, and sacrifice thousands of our lives in a futile effort to contain the madness that is Islamic right wing cavemen, but we didn't. So as you can see, we are completely unable to deal with such tragedy when it occurs, and we would appreciate it if you stop letting your citizens do that sort of thing in the future.

Thank you,
