More Fun With Automated Mailings

Jacob posted earlier on a letter sent by Comcast to one of its many satisfied customers addressing her as "Bitch Dog." Now, banking giant JP Morgan Chase enters the fray by sending a credit card solicitation addressed to Mr. Palestinian Bomber. Apparently, when victim Sami Habbas (a Palestinian-American who has been here for 51 years) called to complain, the ever-so-helpful folks at Chase greeted him, "Yes, Mr. Palestinian Bomber, how may we help you?"

I'm waiting for my "Dear Christ-Killer" letter...

A la Mr. Grier, instant update: apparently a NJ couple got "Jew Couple" written on their restaurant check - story from Daily Kos here. Not quite Christ-Killer, but funny nonetheless.

It's becoming an epidemic!

Y'know Jeff, if someone actually sent you a "dear Christ Killer" card, the creepy part is that might mean they know you. It's not like many people are gonna look at the name "Jeff Woodhead" and think "Jew."

At least not until you change your middle name to Edward for the pure humor value of the initials.

Oooh, Jeff, that would be really funny. You should definitely change your middle name. But Edward's too blah (well, it is the middle name of a lot of people in my family). I like Elliot. It's a great name. We'll have a kid one day with that name.
