"Ask a Designer" - David Thorne Anthology

The following is hilarious e-mail correspondence between a Designer named David Thorne (Australian humourist, satirist, Internet personality and author) and the world he engages.  His website is a collection of various humorous stories and accounts from Thorne's own life. Much of Thorne's humour is autobiographical and self-deprecating, often concerning his immediate family and work associates.  Also quite possibly the funniest copy we’ve read in years.
