Editors have a sense of humor too!
Normally I limit posts and updates about my writing to my writing journal, but I got a rejection letter today from an editor that made me laugh out loud. It's a spec fic story about a writer and his muse, and the writer, explaining his career so far, describes his only heartening response as a form letter with a little handwritten note scribbled on it that says, "Good luck, Wiliam!", with his name misspelled.
The rejection I got, while not precisely a form letter, had, handwritten at the bottom of the letter: "Good luck, Lissa!"
Who says editors don't have a sense of humor?
