The Post Office, not usually the source of a smile, does give us two stories today that might do just that (even if it isn't intentionally.) In the first story a 6-foot-tall, 250-pound letter carrier is campaigning the U.S. Postal Service to add kilts as a uniform option for men. Calling them Unbifurcated garments, our trendsetting mailman pled in a letter "Please open your hearts -- and inseams -- for an option in mail carrier comfort!"Stamp Flag.jpg

In an even more embarrassing story for the Postal Service, though a good one for philatelist, the government agency found that one of its "Flags 24/7" series appears to have 14 stripes, and not the normal 13 strips representing the original 13 colonies. I have no idea if the extra stripe has anything to do with Senator Barack Obama's (D-esperate) claim he has visited 57 states.
