Irony... or Monty Python ish retort?

In Answer to Your Query

Noami Lazard

We are sorry to inform you
the item you ordered
is no longer being produced.
It had not gone out of style
nor have people lost interest in it.
In fact, it has become one of our most desired products.
Its popularity is still growing.
Order for it come in
at an ever increasing rate.
However, a top-level decision has caused
this product to be discontinued forever.

Instead of the item you ordered
we are sending you something else.
It is not the same thing, not is it a reasonable facsimile.
It is what we have in stock,
the very best we can offer.

If you are not happy
with this substitution
let us know as soon as possible.
As you can imagine
we already have quite an accumulation
of letters such as the one
you may or may not write.
To be totally fair,
we respond to these complaints as they come in.
Yours will be files accordingly ,
answered in it turn.
