Simon is a guy who just has too much time on his hands and chooses to spend it bothering people through the mail.
I won't deny that these letters were inspired by the Lazlo Toth letters (by Don Novello) and I certainly wouldn't claim they're as funny although they're not bad. (If you haven't read Don Novello's books, I highly recommend them very entertaining.)
It turns out, after all, that I am actually the one with too much time on his hands and I began writing these just to amuse myself. But, I found that it was an amazing way to get free stuff and the replies were far funnier than the actual letters. It amazes me that people would take this guy seriously! So, I decided to start posting them here.
I don't add new ones too often, anymore. I guess I just lost my muse. But, when I do, I post a note on The Big Waste of Space What's New page.
And again, yes, Simon is a made-up person. My name is Wes and this site is part of The Big Waste of Space. Simon is just a character I play in these letters. This may be an obvious point to you, but some people tend to get a little confused, so I thought I would just clear that up.
