Description

Whether seeking advice from former drug czar William Bennett about a pot smoking teacher or asking Larry Flynt about a Hustler for kids, 'Little Billy' has written hundreds of letters to celebrities, criminals, politicians, and more. Presidents, Supreme Court justices, actors, corporate CEOs, serial killers, robot makers, and even the NesQuik Bunny have replied to his outlandish questions. In this irreverent collection, Little Billy - actually a man with a wicked sense of humour named Bill Geerhart - brings together his original letters, the responses they elicited, and a host of photos and miscellany on a variety of wild topics, including: Operation Drop-Out - considering quitting elementary school, Billy reaches out to serial killers and stars for advice; Billy's Law - from who is Janet Reno's favorite crime fighter to advice on the best defense when framed for murder from OJ 'Dream Team' attorney Robert Shapiro to the favourite McDonald's food of Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas; The Making of the Class President - 'Endorsements' from Nancy Reagan, Dick Cheney, George H. W. Bush, Ken Starr, and Colin Powell; and, Choosing My Religion - representatives from the Catholic, Presbyterian, Mormon, Raelian, Satanic, Scientologist, Hare Krishna, and Unification Church (a.k.a. the Moonies) reveal what's 'cool' about their religion. Shamelessly funny, "Little Billy's Letters" is a wry antidote to our celebrity-obsessed culture.
