The Adventures of the Random House

Random House has a problem. There’s so much security in the building that writers are afraid to bring manuscripts in person. Maureen Johnson decided to send hers by FedEx. But the FedEx agent, a young man, said they couldn’t ship her package.

MAUREEN: Why?

FEDEX: (very disapproving look) I can’t send this to a random house.

MAUREEN: What?

FEDEX: I can’t send this to a random house. You need an address.

Now MAUREEN gets it. She can barely believe this wonderful thing is happening, but she gets it.

MAUREEN: Oh! No, no. It’s a publisher.

FEDEX: Yeah, but I can’t send it.

MAUREEN: Why?

FEDEX: I can’t send to a random house.

The rest of the exchange, which she swears is real, reads like a modern remake of the Abbot & Costello routine known as Who’s On First. Link -via Breakfast Links
