James, you *might* want to consider a new tradition.

But not the REAL return address. Rather, the return address where you mistakenly misdirected any large group of armed nasty men that happened to overreact to a misfiring lightning bug.

Uh, Chief? At what point, in this modern world we live in, did you consider it a good thing to mail a packet of an unknown granular substance to what is considered a textbook target for a domestic terror attack?

Really. What was your thought process on this?

Why isn't the Department of Agriculture involved?

It's dangerous and a possible ecological disaster to send biological samples like this.

The other alternative is Chief hasn't had a vacation since 9/11....

In other news, pantswetting has increased by 700% since 9/11.

Depends. YMMV.

In his defense, he actually mailed rocks, but he shipped them UPS.

Thanks. You made my farking month.

Late reply. I know what you did there and I approve. I totally read it in the voice required.

Sometimes he got the menstrual cramps REAL hard.

well they put the sand in bags right?? cause otherwise i'd see how it would look like anthrax
but why would anyone put anthrax in a bag, hoping that Gary Busey would receive it or something?

now that you've hijacked this thread, i have to admit, i thought liking that album was just a part of my angsty college years, but it still sounds good. who would've thunk?

Among the many weird things I have learned over my lifetime, one of them is that mailing dirt/earth/soil/sand to someone from a faraway place is a witch's spell to get the recipient to move there (except it has to be received nine times in succession).

Maybe the guy couldn't count.

My father's a geologist, and various people he's known over the years have brought him interesting rocks or sands they've come across it their travels. One, an uncle of mine, was on vacation in Acapulco and thought the dazzling white sands there were something worth sharing. As he attempted to cross back into the U.S. with the small unlabelled vial of fine white grain....

Then there's my favourite fellow Farkette, who visited me a few years ago with a sampling of her tea and her tea-making kit. Then headed back home with her tiny portable digital scale and collection of small empty baggies.

How do you mail something in an unmarked envelope? Would you need some form of markings for it to reach the intended destination?

They should have put it in an underground cavern so they could move all their food production indoors and safe from the goblins.
