Special Delivery Service (No Trespassing Sign theme)

Post by Mikes » Tue May 28, 2013 5:43 am

Mark was a postman. A good postman. He was one of the lucky kids, knowing what he wanted to be when he was an adult. He didn’t waste his time with college, instead signing up straight from school with the Royal Mail and got to work.

In 20 years he really had thought he’d seen everything. Men answering the doorbell naked. Humorously wrapped alarm clocks, complete with protruding wires and ‘ACME BOMB CO.’ stickers. Chihuahuas with name tags saying ‘KILLER’. So he didn’t think twice before opening the gate with the ‘BEWARE, TURTLES’ sign. He really wasn’t ready for Donatello.

I can't help thinking though, that we shouldn't call the British postal service Royal Mail any more. Now that it's been sold off, shouldn't it be Pleb Mail?

Or possibly Peasant Post?

The only conceivable justification for putting up with a monarch is so you can brand things "Royal". If a person is a royal pain in the ass, it should be the king's job to do something about it.

Do ya'll give a princess royal jelly to make her a queen?

The Royal Pain in the Arse was once a highly respected position in court.

Althought in all seriousness the Groom of the Stool was a man who, in Henry VIII's court, was the person in charge of wiping the king's bottom, and was a highly saught after positin as he was one of the only people who had alone time with the king.

I bring this up as it's always bothered me as to the position..... I mean, was he changed on his back with legs in the air like a baby?

No, we give her Prince William.
