How the Heck will I deliver The Mail?!!

OK….here’s what I’m thinking….

The mail is important.

It’s important that people get their letters and catalogs and packages….and stuff.

It’s important…..somehow.

I do an important job.

I’m important.


Maybe not….but if this “oil thing” goes down like this show says, it’s going to be hard to deliver the mail.

What I’m thinking is that they (the post office) will probably have a “secret stash” of gas that they will use to keep us drivers on the road. ¬†They support us in every other way….why not keep our postal wheels rolling with a secret stash of gas?

Of course, it will have some negatives.

I’m sure that I’ll be attacked by roving bands of marauders with siphon hoses each time I stop at a mailbox to deliver the next package or letter.

It will slow me down to have to battle the roving hoard at every box.

And where am I going to get tires when I can’t get petroleum rich rubber to put on my wheels?


It’s going to be hard to be a mailman.

It’s really going to stink to be a mailman without any gas.

Anyway, remember when National Geographic was the go-to place to find topless pygmy women?

To hide behind the Curious George books and soak in all that new knowledge of pygmy anatomy was a good thing….a good right of passage.

To know in your “child heart” that all the ladies had “those”?

It wasn’t scary….it was revelatory.

Now, it’s scary….the gas thing, I mean….and National Geographic.

The pygmy women must have put on shirts….what is the magazine¬†going to talk about now?

Check out this video to see something scary.

I’m scared.
