Overview

When fifty-eight-year-old Gabe Kaplan, perhaps best known for his performance in the title role of the popular seventies sitcom Welcome Back, Kotter, got an e-mail asking him to participate in a show called Celebrity Boxing, he couldn't resist the urge to have a little fun with the request. After exchanging a series of ludicrous e-mails with the show's talent coordinator in a mock-serious attempt at negotiation, Gabe was inspired to start a prank e-mail campaign. The result is this hilarious collection of correspondence. See how people react to Gabe Kaplan's absurd claims that he:

* has slept with more women than Wilt Chamberlain

• is an expert at Cossack dancing

• thinks he's smart enough to become a member of MENSA

• wants his image on a U.S. postage stamp

• would like NASA to send him into orbit with Jimmy Carter and Dr. J

• and many more!

Witty, irreverent, and ridiculously comical, Gabe's e-mails and the responses he receives are sure to entertain anyone with a taste for the surreal.
