Overview

For five years, James Wade, an American businessman living in Switzerland, has been firing off preposterous letters to organizations all over the world, seeing whether he can elicit serious replies to bizarre inquiries that are worded to appear as if they just might be legitimate.

Would a Big Ten College offer Physical Education credit for a correspondence course in karate? Does a carpet cleaner have the facilities to dry clean a whale skin? How would the Swiss Cheese Union like to develop a cheeseless, non-dairy fondue for export to America, where people love all things artificial?
