From time to time this upcoming Christmas season, I'll be posting some amazing videos that have been rescued by people like us and posted at the mecca of all things wonderful and obscure - YouTube.
I invite you to add a fun comment, witticism, clever remark, or observation in the comments section provided. Any comments deemed worthy of repeating will be included into this entry where all the world will see it.
We're barely into the second week of December and believe it or not, the Post Office is giving you important deadlines. Tomorrow marks the last day to mail military and international packages around the world if you want it guaranteed to be delivered by December 25.
In that spirit (and the fact that I have to deliver two such packages - one military, one international), here is a truly astounding 30 second video from the late 1970s.
Featuring stars as Robert Klein, Rose Marie, Willie Mays, Bobby Riggs, Milton Berle, and Lynn Redgrave, they drive home the point across to (what else?) mail early:
Yes, mom and dad - your tax dollars and what you paid for postage back in the day helped pay for that!
What do you think?
Ernie says: I always see these YouTube posts when I'm at work. Problem is, we've got YouTube blocked here, so all I see is a big post with lots of white blocks that have nothing in them. *sigh*
Stubby says: Very cool (said the former postal worker). (Be sure to read Stubby's other comment below)
Any other opinions?
