Parcel Post

As of 1913, it is illegal to send children via parcel post. This law exists because at least two children were actually sent this way.

I’ve heard of sending chicks and bees this way (the post office used to call my dad when he got packages that were peeping or buzzing and ask him to come pick them up even though the post office was closed).


(thanks to Andrew Boardman for mentioning the law)
