Must... have... double... western... bacon... cheeseburger...

Dear John C. Menzies,

Thank you for your submission "The Adoption of Solar Cell Technology in Western Countries and the Obvious Increase in Obesity" to the Journal of Universal Rejection.

We did not bother to read the attachment because we felt we had a good grasp on the material from your title.  We have already warned our neighbors that they should either remove the solar panels from their roofs, or we are going to send them a bill for our lunch at Carl's Jr.  Those jerks are causing our weight problems!  I knew it all along.

Although the read (or lack thereof) was enlightening, we have decided to reject your submission.  I am sure however that you will find the right home for this impressive piece of scholarship.

Best regards,

Caleb Emmons, PhD

  1. Dear Editor-in-Chief,

    I am the editor of dailyrejections.com, a collaborative project that conducts high-class interdisciplinary research on the concept of "rejection".

    Today, our scientific advisory board has elected the Journal of Universal Rejection to be covered in our daily blog. We congratulate you to this oustanding achievement. Please note that any attempt to reject this honour will be rejected from our legal department.

    Yours sincerely,

    Manfred de Bille, DPhil (Cantab.)

  2. Dear Manfred,

    Thank you for alerting me of your blog, and it is an honor scarcely to be believed to be covered there. Clearly we have similar interests. Although I guess you work to expose rejections, and I seek to create rejections. Which is more important? You can decide, but I'll reject your answer.
