Joking around with Oscar and Steve

About six months ago, I got an e-mail. Here's what it said:

Hi Dave, it's Steve Martin. I'm hosting the Oscars this year and am trying to put together a team of geniuses to help me write it. Here's my question: do you know any? HA! I'm wondering if the idea appeals to you at all. You, me, Rita Rudner and a few others. Best Oscar monologue ever. California. Tickets to the show. Fame. I know you won't do it, so go (bad word) yourself.
