I got a HILARIOUS rejection letter. It is a form letter, but its my favorite response so far, other than the personal advice I have been given. The humor was worth the rejection, though then I more wanted him to be my agent.

His Publisher's Marketplace page looks like random nonsense. His web site is half finished. The footer and the agent profiles still have placeholder text from the template they used. Also, the footer is inconsistently applied across the web site. The address listed on the front page is different than the address listed on the agents' individual profile pages. It looks sloppy and unprofessional.

Pt 2 of form rejection:
Please don’t give up or become discouraged. There are many opportunities out there. We want you to succeed even if it causes us to kick ourselves for letting you get away. Thank you for giving us a chance.

Sincerely, Jeffrey H. Herman

PS: I realize this might be a very late response. If so, I apologize for the unintended discourtesy. Perhaps you have landed a deal by now.

[I particularly like the PS--because it's only been a month since I queried him, and yes, I had indeed found an agent in the meantime!]
