    Some of you may have read about this in the news papers this morning, apparently he actually called the guy personally off the back of this fine letter.

    OMG this is an epic letter!
    That was exactly what I thought! I thought it was a rock of crack or something.

    He cracks me up with his crime scene analogies. I do wonder what the resolution was to all of this. Time for some googling.
    As far as the pictures of the food goes ... ew! Glad I've yet to eat today! I'm going to shower as I feel dirty now.

    That was brilliant. I often want to send letters like this but I'm just too damn lazy.

    hahaha that was fantastic!

    And yet at the same time I couldn't help but think... "there are airlines out there that still try to serve real meals?!"
    I've been flying JetBlue a lot lately :rolleyes:

    I saw this on Consumerist yesterday and could not stop laughing - tears at my desk kind of laughing. Any links to the newspaper article? I'm really curious how Richard responded...

    "It’s your hamster Richard. It’s your hamster in the box and it’s not breathing. That’s how I felt when I peeled back the foil and saw this:" Just Awesome.

    Evidently the person who wrote the letter is now a food tester for Virgin Atlantic.

    Once again, I'm envious of our British friends. This letter absolutely requires the proper accent to realize it's true potential.

    I'd like to think my British accent is pretty good, but the ultimate would be to have some amazing voice over person record this.

    When read in John Cleese's voice it sounds a lot like a Monty Python sketch :D

    ...somewhere between that of an irate headmaster and a neurotic hotelier.
