Letter Etiquette From David Choe

David Choe on Letter Etiquette

Good manners got an unlikely ally today when David Choe came out in support of…MAIL. The letter etiquette lesson, which he posted to Instagram, begins:

A word or two about MAIL. Writing a letter today in the world of texts and emails is a very thoughtful thing to do. With that being said, if you are going to take the time to be thoughtful, put some mother fucking thought into it.

YES!

In an interesting convergence, Mashable revealed tonight that Choe’s Facebook friend, Mark Zuckerberg [See also “David Choe is $200 Million Richer Thanks to Facebook“], will happily charge you $100 to send him a digital message.

[ @ ] davidchoe1 A word or two about MAIL . Writing a letter today in the world of texts and emails is a very thoughtful thing to do . With that being said if you are going to take the time to be thoughtful put some mother fucking thought into it . I receive letters everyday to my po box of the shittiest requests , the shittiest fonts , the shittiest art , the shittiest expressions of feelings , basically the shittiest shit . It’s like you came to an audition or first date with sweatpants over your uggs. You want to get noticed you want to get my attention. Then dress it up , use good stationary , work on your penmanship , put some substance into it , in the last couple years, I only remember two letters, I got one from #Howardstern and one from #Takashimurakami @takashipom (look at that detail in the packaging! Wood box with his own homemade fragile stickers! ) , you think it’s an accident that they are the most successful people in the world , you think they became thoughtful letter writers after they became successful ? When I used to care to write letters I’d draw all over the envelope , use watercolor and brush to write it and then rubbed the whole thing all over my wet pussy for pheromones , it got me my first job at hustlers Asian fever magazine . If you ever wrote me a shitty letter and didn’t get a reply back , it’s cuz my bird #stevenseagull is using it for his paper mâché art project aka making huge bird shit diapers #guano #lostart #camouflagegorilla #presidentsteam #koreansloveherbalife #herbalife #awkwardfamilyphoto #mydadisdangerouslyclosetowearingdeniroglassesfromcasino
