It's Possible I'm Legally Blind

Anyone who knows me well knows I hate traditional, cataloguey shit. I'm an original. It's how I made my living as a standup comic and how I decorate.

I came across this mailbox and even though I wanted an official U.S.P.S. silver one, this was the only one I found. I wanted to turn it into a trashcan for the bathroom. When it was full, I would put the flag up because this meant it was time to empty it. I thought I was a genius until I realized I lived alone and I'm not a little bit country.

  2. For the full country flavor, why don't you stuff it with silk flowers and place it on your mantel. And don't forget the stencil.

  7. I'll buy it. Name your price. I want my wife to use it as a feminine products receptacle and she can put the flag up when she no longer needs it that month.

  8. I have a friend who would love a mailbox like that. Or even a trash can. And since she's the only one who empties it at her house, she could play with the flag all she wants. Very cool.

  10. You should send it to Douglas's wife so she can hit him over the head with it!
    People love those hand painted mailboxes around here. Trashcan is better.

  11. I think you can get atleast $5 for it at garage sale. You had good intentions as crazy as they are!

  12. That's very inventive! I might put red swing-arm flags on all kinds of things around our house to show it's full or empty or in need of a good dusting, etc.

  14. Oh.My.Gawd. That is foul and odious. But still not as bad as that skeery fish.

  20. Gives a whole new meaning to the term "junk mail."

  21. That storage unit is like a little shop of horrors. Seriously. Just set it all on fire!

  22. Sorry, but for it to be a genuine "country" mailbox, it would have to have at least one big dent in it, the flag would be bent and the door would either be missing or wouldn't close.

  23. Careful, or your guests will think you're "crafty".
