Artisanal hate mail is a thing — and it's really popular

q social experiment columnist Scaachi Koul subjects herself to Mr Bingo, hate mail artist for hire.
Want to receive something nasty in the mail? Mr. Bingo is a hate mailer for hire. (Mr. Bingo)

This week we subject Scaachi Koul to Mr. Bingo — a man who describes himself as the world's best hate mailer. Will this creatively cruel artist offend ... or bizarrely delight our social experiment columnist?

WEB EXTRA | Watch Mr. Bingo pitch his project — to a beat. "I guess there's an element of sadomasochist. The words leap off the page and punch you like a massive fist. And it amuses, confuses, bemuses, yet people choose to do this, causing metaphorical bruises."
