So here’s a fun letter of note to share on the slow Friday following a holiday. Redditor Schmedditz shared the above crumpled rejection from the ’70s, adding:

“My uncle submitted photos of himself to a certain ladies magazine in the 70’s. This was the reply he received.”

I haven’t received a magazine rejection letter since I got burned by Cat Fancy years back, but I’m pretty sure nowadays they have to be all lame and PC and aren’t allowed to sarcastically shame submitters and imply they suffered dong-related war injuries. Too bad. Something from Playgirl like this today would almost be enough to convince me to read the articles. Almost.
