I’m Allergic to (Packing) Peanuts

6 Dec

As all of you hopefully know, the United States Postal Service is at risk of bankruptcy. As an up-standing citizen, I refuse to stand idly by and watch this pillar of American life crumble by the wayside. But, this is a rare occasion, as I am making a criticism with a possible solution in mind.

Your friendly neighborhood mailman.

Bring back the pony express. Even if there was only one horse per post office, small children and their parents would send letters to themselves just to watch a horse come down the street. Also, local offices could have “Support Our Mail Pony” fundraisers, and the outpouring of support would be enough to fund the post office for years, pony or not. It would also solve the unemployment problem, since someone would have to clean up the dung left behind by our hooved (or the occasional inappropriate human) mail carriers.

(Lastly, in a bit of shameless self-promotion, follow this blog if you want mail ponies.)

    This blog is sexist! Why only mail ponies and not fe-mail ponies? To imply that only mail ponies can save the postal service and not fe-mail ponies suggests that you are a misogynist. If I was a woman, I would burn my bra in protest, but since I do not have one, I am going to burn a pony in protest.
