Werner Herzog's Note To His Cleaning Lady

Werner Herzog, the famous director, is mad. He is fuming mad. Absolutely livid ... at his cleaning lady. So he left her this note:

Now we must turn to the horrors of nature. I am afraid this is inevitable. Nature is not something to be coddled and accepted and held to your bosom like a wounded snake. Tell me, what was there before you were born? What do you remember? That is nature. Nature is a void. An emptiness. A vacuum. And speaking of vacuum, I am not sure you’re using the retractable nozzle correctly or applying the ‘full weft’ setting when attending to the lush carpets of the den. I found some dander there.

Somehow, I am not surprised. Link - via Metafilter

He came by to visit Roland Emmerich during the post production on ID4 and left a note on the glass of a framed poster for his 'Nosferatu' film that a vfx producer happened to have on a wall. The recipient was pleasantly surprised to find it.

So, uh, is that a very-well-done piece of satire or is that actually written by Herr Herzog? If so, how did it come to be on our Internets?
