Had to buy a new mailbox to replace the new one I put up about a month ago because Mrs. Pic didn’t like it. She told me to get a green plastic mailbox, which I did. That made sense because the original mailbox had rusted up pretty badly.

The new mailbox, the plastic one, had hinge problems so I went looking for a green steel replacement.

I couldn’t find any that met her exacting specifications, so I got a white one and decided to paint it green. At the last minute I was told of her change in plans. She wanted it fire engine red.

Anyway, it’s ready to go as soon as the paint dries.

Whatever. I will soon put it up and that will be that.

When I bought it, I saw that the Postmaster General had approved it.

It made me think.

What does the Postmaster General do all day?

Does he really sit around huge piles of mailboxes approving them?

“This one’s OK, here’s another good one. Nope, this one’s dented. OK. OK. OK. Nope, send this piece of junk back.”

Of course, the Assistant Postmaster General is the guy that brings the mailboxes into his office to inspect. He also takes the inspected ones out. Pile A is for those that pass muster, Pile B is for those that don’t.

The Assistant looks forward to the day when he can sit around all day looking at mailboxes.

No wonder we have so many postal workers flipping out!


How about the Swiss Army? Do they sit around all day making knives?

You really need to take the SEC for a walk.

good thing you've limited yourself to a thought per day

Uh, I know I'm being literal-minded here, but the Swiss Army Knives are made by Victorinox and Wenger, and only one model is issued by the Swiss Army (aka the populace). Both Victorinox and Wenger make that model, though.

How come every time I get a perfectly good half-baked idea, some rocket scientist comes charging in with the facts and ruins a perfectly good half-baked thread?
