Mailing a Potato

22 Feb


Supposedly in the postal world – you can mail an actual potato.  I guess with enough stamps, you can mail anything.  But this intrigues me.  Can you really mail a potato?  I ❤ potatoes.  Of any kind.  Of any size.  Of any nationality.

Now with that being said, who wants to take a challenge and mail me a potato?  Do you really think it will work?  Anyone – anyone at all?

mmm – potatoes – hash browns – french fries – mashed potatoes – twice cooked baked potatoes – grilled mashed potatoes – home fries – crispy potato roast – scalloped potatoes –

do I need to go on?  mmm – potatoes

    Hmm my mailman says no produce can be mailed. I can just imagine the smell it gets sent to the wrong places.

    can’t imagine what shape a spud would be in having being sent from Australia to America! #stale #mouldy #smelly

      Slap a camera on that thing and see what pictures it takes. Now *that* would be hilarious in itself. XOXO – Bacon

    Crikey ….. I’m intrigued too ….. BUT ….. the last time I posted something to the States it took 4 weeks to get there. By that time the spud would be rotten, aye??

      It might just be well past stinking – snorts and oinks. I wonder if it would work locally? I must check into that and see. What a weird thing to try, huh? XOXO – Bacon

      WOW – these postal peeps just don’t get the fun department do they brother? They need to loosen up a bit – life is just way too short. I wonder if I walked in and tried to do it, would they? XOXO – Bacon

        I have to do it then. I need to go to the post office. Can you give me a ride brother? Between the two of us, surely we can persuade them? XOXO – Bacon

    Way back when, people could mail small children! I would not have enjoyed being a postal carrier back then. And I wouldn’t want to eat a potato that has been handled by many and rubbed against lots of dirty boxes. So don’t eat them, Bacon! Plant them in a garden instead.

    • PigLove

      02/23/2015 at 12:00 pm

      Snorts. I would definitely plant them. But it would be fun to try. And mailing small children – really? OMP – I so would *NOT* want that job. Oh no way! XOXO – Bacon

    I can just imagine the post person turning up at your house with a bag full of potato’s 🙂

      Snorts! Too funny. It would be a hoot. My mail guy already thinks I’m crazy – a pig getting mail here. He always laughs when he comes to my door. I think it’s because mom always gives him a bag of animal crackers for his troubles. XOXO – Bacon

    Psssss Mom mails didgeridoos all over the country and those things are darn hard to wrap !

    • PigLove

      02/23/2015 at 12:02 pm! WOW! And think of the strange noises coming from within the bag. Oh wow! It would be so much fun to hear them in the mail truck. XOXO – Bacon

    Too funny. Not sure they will be able to stamp.

      02/23/2015 at 12:04 pm

      Can you imagine stamping it fragile? Snorts and rolls with laughter. XOXO – Bacon

      Tis true. I think packages/boxes take the scenic route around the world, under the bushes, over the hills and frequent potty breaks. Snorts and rolls with laughter. XOXO – Bacon

    Mom LOVES potatoes too butt the whole “can you mail a potato” question is beyond us seeing as we are STILL THREE PARCELS SHORT. Mom is starting to get pretty peeved.

      What!?! Still MIA with THREE parcels? What the cream cheese is up with that postal service of yours? I’m off to make some picket signs to get your packages – FREE PACKAGES – You think that would work? XOXO – Bacon


This piggy would love to snort with you :)
