    Dear Mr. Wellington:

    Although your vibrating brush was well received by certain members of our secretarial staff, its capabilities as a decorating tool proved quite limited. As such, we have rejected your patent application. Furthermore, I must caution you against applying the brand name iPaint to your unpatented product. it took us a long time to think it up, and we will not allow you to give us the brush on this matter.

    Dear Mr. Balton & Cook:

    We at LeftyBosco, ink. are very disappointed that our patent application for the Wellington Electric Paint Brush has been rejected. But we take pleasure in the fact that certain members of your staff have found a different use for our fine product.

    Sincerely,

    Wellington C. Winthrop,
    President of LeftyBosco, ink.

    Dear Mr. Wellington C. Winthrop:

    At the request of Mr. T. Cook, several of my colleagues and I beta tested your device. Although I’ve been given to understand that Mr. Cook has rejected your patent, we urge you to continue production. We think you’re a genius.

    One suggestion: might you include an extension cord for those “hard to reach” places?

    And could you please let us know if it is safe to submerge this product in water? Because sometimes we need to paint underwater.

    Thank you.

    Sincerely,
    Pamela Smythe-Forrest St. John
    Executive Assistant

    Dear Ms. Winthop:
    Our rules clearly dictate what can and cannot be patented. Your submission, while novel, violates the laws of nature and may be offensive to public morality.

    Years ago I was in the remodeling trade. I took a quick lock cord from a Milwaukee drill and adapted it to the base of an Estwing hammer handle. I used to leave it in a prominent spot on the site and wait for someone to pick it up. It produced the occasional expected results.

    Latex and electricity don’t mix, yet it would most certainly be loads of fun if it had.!!
