(sent to Jack in the Box contact address)
My name is Jack. It's a pretty good name. I love to eat at
Jack in the Box and I'd extra-double love to wear the oversized
Jack™ head around town here in Seattle.
Could you send me a huge Jack™ head that I can wear as I go
from cafe to cafe (I work for a startup and it's all telecommuting)?
I'd be happy to abide by any rules of conduct you might have for
wearing the Jack™ head. I'd be willing to sign something to that effect.
