Re: Things that make you go, "Hmm."

I'm totally drawing a blank right now as to the name of the song or the artist but......

 

There's an oldies song that I've heard MANY times about dropping a letter in the mail and it "came right back to me the very next day".  That would involve dropping it in the mail, having the mail carrier pick it up, take it to the distribution center for sorting, someone else delivering it to the recipient, the recipient refusing it, the mail carrier returning it to the distribution center for sorting and the mail carrier delivering it back to the sender -- all in the course of ONE DAY.

 

Even in today's world of next day air shipments, I don't see this happening.  But that song originated in what -- the FIFTIES?  Hmmmm

 

:smileytongue:

 

I was driving late at night all by myself one night (after about 7 hrs) and that was one of my wandering thoughts.

Really?  I thought I would've remembered Elvis singing it.  I thought I knew every Elvis song.

 

EDIT:  learn something everyday I guess.  I just looked it up on wikipedia.

One of those mid-afternoon duh moments.

Though you are spot on about the postman doing a bang-up job like that.

If Jimmy cracks corn and nobody cares, why is there a song about it?

How about the stickers on the gas pumps that say "Pre-pay in advance".  I think if that were possible it would involve a time machine.

To be fair, they're not saying what you're pre-paying in advance of.

Seems like it should just say "pay in advance" or just "pre-pay"  Hmmm.
