French Fried Envelope from Richard Canard

One of the best envelopes I have ever received. What an amazing idea to send this. the letter was tucked inside:

He sent a copy of a Saltine Cracker print that I had sent him and the following letter:

He was feeling bad for sending me the warped plastic bottle with postage due, so he sent me a dollar. he really didn't need to as they never collect postage due from me--not sure why. I love that he received a brick in the mail--bet the postman hated delivered that. Thanks Richard---I know you're out there!!

I sent the difference to Carl, Ben, and Dale. I'm also saving up for some more crackers--times are tough--Even at DKult.

WHAT HAS HAPPENED TO MR. CANARD'S 22 CENTS?

I see yet another DK slight-of-hand trick here. What has happened to Mr. Canard's 22 cents in change? The DKULT has made a healthy 22 cent profit on this exchange. Multiply this by dozens, hundreds, perhaps even thousands and we understand how this cult preys on the innocent and has the ability to endlessly expand.

'Have been totally inspired by Jon Foster's series of tape transfers and using that clear packing tape.

Jon should be making and posting a video of his tape-art soon, I hope. Fun material to work with!

Fantastic- I love it. Seems we all have fun with home-lamination--been playing with packing tape myself:)

Carbondale, Illinois! 'Love Richard Canard's humor!!! And sending money in the mail, eh?

Watch so it doesn't get shredded ;-)

(But then, again..."In God We Trust", and lives in Washington, D.C.?)
