    (Not funny, but funny!)

    On this evening's national news there was an item about a woman who tried mailing a puppy to people in another state. I don't know if it was supposed to be a birthday present as there was "Happy Birthday" written on the inside flap.

    Seems she put the puppy in the Priority box, sealed it with some food or something, went to the post office. The postal worker got a bit suspecious when the box started moving and eventually fell off the counter. Then the woman is shown in court asking the judge to give her the puppy back! Denied!
    It's up for adoption. So cute!

    Thank goodness for the pause and rewind button! I had to watch it again and really pay attention the second time!

    HOLY MORON! People never cease to surprise me with their boundless and ever flowing fountain of ignorance! How can you not know you just can't mail a puppy in a priority box?!? Unbelievable!

    Explosive blessings, abundance and inspiration to you all!

    Unbelievable. It is scary what people think is okay.

    My kids asked me the other day if they could ship themselves to Africa - where their dad is deployed. They saw a cartoon where some kid shipped himself overseas and wanted to know if that was possible. I had to explain to them why they wouldn't make it there alive and why animals and people cannot be shipped. I can see this coming from a kid, but an ADULT? Yikes!

    Now you understand why they ask so many questions about the package contents. Not everything can be legally placed in the mailstream. Several years ago someone mailed a package that contained (once frozen at the time of mailing) animal remains.. Supposedly going to a taxidermist maybe??? Anyway, the package began leaking and created a major mess. People do the dangest things...
