Editor's note: We received a submission from Noam Shabtai, The Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, Ben Gurion University of the Negev, Beer Sheva, Israel.

Dear Noam,

We are rejecting your submission on the following grounds: (A) you are not Noam Chomsky, and (B) you live in Beer Sheva, but did not include any beer in your submission.  I hope you can see how thorough and agonizing our decision process was.

Best regards,

Caleb Emmons, PhD
Journal of Universal Rejection

Dear Caleb,
I would like to thank you for the thorough review process, and for teaching me how to differ between right and wrong.
After revising the paper, it was submitted and accepted to the journal of universal acception (it is also known as the broadcast news on TV, in case you were wondering)..

Best Regards,

  1. Hahahahahhaa! I love Noam's reply. Please check for India TV news items. There are items about aliens hijacking Indian cows and there is even a visual. There are these times I feel so thankful for a natural aversion to TV :D
