Must Have Gotten Lost In The Mail


Did you "forget" to mail your hideous Aunt Bertha an invitation to your wedding? Looks like you could have a tiny window to make it right -- this weekend, a whole lot of mail blew out the back of a mail truck between St. Louis and Ste. Genevieve.

Postal employees and highway patrol scooped up what they figure is the majority of the spilled mail, a postal inspector told  The truck driver didn't realize the door was open until the truck reached Ste. Genevieve, en route to Memphis where it would be sent on to the West Coast.

Go ahead, milk this as an excuse for not sending a thank-you note for an ugly Christmas sweater!
