Parody chain letter. Husband exchange. US, 1980.

Dear Friend,

     This letter was started by a woman like yourself in the hope of bringing relief to other tired and discontented women.  Unlike most chain letters, this one does not cost anything.  Just send a copy of this letter to 5 of your friends who are equally tired and discontented.  Then, bundle up your husband or boy-friend and send him to the woman whose name appears at the top of the list.  Add your name to the bottom of the list.  When your name comes to the top you will receive 16,874 men and some of them are bound to be a hell of a lot better than the one you already have.

     Do not break the chain - have faith!  One women broke the chain and got her own S.O.B. back.  At this writing, a friend of mine already received 184 men.  They buried her yesterday but it took 3 undertakers 36 hours to get the smile off her face.

                                                                  We are counting on you!
                                                                    Liberated Woman
