From the comedian and star of 'Welcome Back, Kotter' comes a collection of hilarious e-mails.
For years, Gabe Kaplan has engaged in outlandish correspondences with unsuspecting subjects on a range of unlikely topics. Whether it's lengthy exchange with a DNA testing lab asking them to compare his DNA to his sister's ("If it turns out that I am adopted, can you use my DNA to find my real parents? Do you think they're alive? Would they ask me for things?") or a letter to a Swami asking if there's a way to have his Indian fiancée, one of the "untouchable" class, upgraded a few notches ("PS: She may be 'untouchable' but I can't keep my hands off her"), the e-mails are witty, irreverent, and hilariously inventive.
Who else would contact the makers of Metamucil offering to appear in a commercial? He even manages to engage the likes of Tom Clancy, Jerry Fallwell, and the Postmaster General of the United States in outrageous correspondence. Gabe's e-mails and the responses, ranging from sincere to suspicious, make for a thoroughly entertaining read both for nostalgic Kotter fans and anyone with an appreciation for the brilliant and bizarre.
