Ask the Mountie

How can I get my question on Letterman?

Dear Mountie

I have been trying to get my question read on the David Letterman show for some time now on their “CBS Mailbox” segment, but haven’t been picked.
Do you have any tips or helpful hints on how I should phrase my question so that it will be read on the air?

Regards, M Martenson

Dear M Martenson

Try changing your name to something slightly rude or silly so that the audience will laugh when they hear your name read out loud.
Try to keep it subtle, but not too subtle.
Fred Penis is going slightly overboard, whereas Brad Hudwinckle is slightly too obtuse.
