Lulu.com is offering authors whose work has met similar rejection the chance to put it behind them... by printing their rejection letters onto rolls of customized toilet paper.
For this I'll even forgo my 'no quoting' rule and quote Sir Winston Churchill just as Lulu has:
Dear Sir, I am in the smallest room of the house. I have your letter before me. Soon it will be behind me.
For some reason though, I get the feeling Ted Turner never got a rejection letter when he tried to publish his memoirs:
Turner, the outspoken yachtsman, philanthropist, CNN founder and ex-husband of actress Jane Fonda, is writing his memoirs, "Call Me Ted: The Life and Times of Ted Turner," to be published by Warner Books in fall 2008.
Please pay close attention to the publishing company, that would be Warner Books. I guess it helps to have owned the publishing company (Time Warner owned Warner books until recently)...
