  1. Dear Sir:
    While I an honored that you wish to honor me with this honorable honor, I feel I must refuse as my honor has been compromised. (That is a long story)

  2. Dear Mr. Pachyglossal,

    It is with great honor that we announce the winner of our Prestgious Panaceist Panegyric Panacosmism Prize.

    Unfortunately, it is not you.

    Mr. Jobodias Palamate

  3. Dear Mr. Noah Webster,

    You'll be pleased to know that many of your spelling changes have taken hold here in the U.S.

    In particular, respelling "honour", "colour", etc. as "honor" and "color" has shortened many words. This is especially important in Twitter, where, believe it or not, we have just 140 characters in which to cram an entire essay.

    We're still working on changing "soccer" to "football".

  4. Dear Mrs. Nesbitt,

    I have TOYed long enough with the idea of having you over for tea. You must now come at once as I have the juiciest STORY to tell: Mr. Potato Head is adamant that Honor Thyself has eloped with Tim Buktu. No one seems to know where they are now. Imagine the BUZZ! It will be LIGHTYEARs before we hear from them, I'm sure.

    Do Hurry!
    Your friend always,


  5. Dear Honor Blackman

    We have been given the word "honor" today in Loqwacious. I do think it slightly odd that we have been given a word whose only use is in your name. But so be it.

    I did enjoy your role as Cathy Gale in "The Avengers" and as Pussy Galore in Goldfinger.

    Where did your name come from, by the way?

    Love from Tidd Kidd

    P.S. Like you, I'm British.

  6. Dear Woody,

    It is my honor to have such an esteemed piece of wood write on this blog.

  7. From @19ish:

    Dear Mrs Betty Crocker,

    Please accept my sincere thanks for all of the wonderful products you have provided for my family throughout these many years. It has been an honor to bake your cakes, brownies and muffins.

    Your products have grown along with our family. When we were newlyweds, I used to buy the "fun" size brownie mix. As our family grew, we graduated, naturally, to the "family" size mixes.

    Your marketing dept is certainly to be commended for their creativity, as when our children went off to college, we were able to buy the "empty nest" size brownie mix.

    In fact, with modern technology, I am able to simply order your products online, allowing our dear postman to deliver them right to my door.

    However, at this time, I must register a complaint. As my darling husband and I are getting on in age, we must sell our home and move into assisted living. To brighten up our sad situation, I purchased one last brownie mix to bake during our final week before we move out. This was a mistake!

    As you are an honorable company, I am sure you will have no problem in refunding our purchase. We simply cannot bake and eat so many brownies.

    Please be aware that your marketing dept and online store are getting out of hand. Imagine our surprise when we discovered my order for a "fun" size brownie mix was actually an abbreviation. Apparently, the "fun." size stands for "funeral" size!

    Cordially yours,
    Mrs and Mrs Notreadyforthecemeteryyet
