* Gretchen in ''WesternAnimation/{{Recess}}'' at one point takes action on behalf of her friend in the form of an "Angry E-Mail". The AI in her pocket computer (the episode was written before the days of smart phones) becomes very excited about the idea. Notable as the angry e-mail does achieve it's objective, which is more than any of the pranks the gang pulls during the episode do.

* Subverted in ''[[http://www.newgrounds.com/portal/view/428847 Smash Kingdom Melee]]'' (a parody of ''VideoGame/SuperSmashBros'' by the creators of ''WebAnimation/BowsersKingdom''). Several characters are upset that they haven't been announced as playable characters for ''Super Smash Bros. Brawl''. [[VideoGame/{{Metroid}} Ridley]] suggests that they should send a letter complaining about their exclusion:
--> '''Ridley''': We should write a letter.
--> '''[[VideoGame/SuperMarioRPG Geno]]''': Good idea. I'll start. ''(camera zooms in on Geno's face as he begins talking)'' Dear Masahiro Sakurai: ''(camera zooms out to show [[spoiler: Geno in space, holding a large energy ball]])'' '''''[[spoiler: [[PrecisionFStrike FUCK YOU!]]]]''''' ''([[spoiler:Geno releases the ball, which [[CallBack completely destroys Japan]]]])''
--> '''Mega Man''': ''[[spoiler:(flies over to Geno, using Rush as a rocket)]]'' Uh, you know, [[spoiler: they haven't finished making the game yet.]]
--> '''Geno''': Seriously?! [[OhCrap Oh shit!]]

* The Zaporozhian Cossacks' letter to the Ottoman Sultan, the writing of which has been eternalized in [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Repin_Cossacks.jpg Ilya Repin's famous painting]]. To say it was strongly worded is [[ClusterFBomb to say nothing]].

* Subverted in ''Webcomic/SandraAndWoo'' by Yuna [[http://www.sandraandwoo.com/2013/06/20/0492-yuna-has-the-atom-bomb/ here]]. When a teacher during a 'Bullying Prevention Day' lesson asks her how she'd deal with incessant chicanery, and Yuna replies that she'd get out her pencil, the teacher immediately assumes that she would send a Strongly Worded Letter to a teacher or maybe the principal. Nope. Yuna's the daughter of an ex-Special Forces operative and a former south-east asian [[TheRevolutionWillNotBeCivilized rebel]], who named their kids after characters from ''Franchise/FinalFantasy'' and gave them combat-training to match. [[Film/TheDarkKnight How 'bout a magic trick?]] [[EyeScream I'm gonna make this pencil disappear...]]

* In [[Magazine/{{Mad}} MAD Magazine]] parody comic from the late 80s, [[Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration Captain Picard]] is unfavorably portrayed as the kind of diplomat who'd ask Starfleet to send a strongly-worded letter to the Klingons... while they're firing on the Enterprise.
