Yesterday I came home from work, checked my mail as usual, and while stepping into my house I tripped over an invisible object and landed on my face.

"What the *%#@ was that?" I yelled, getting back up to my feet as I spun around to view the culprit.

Turns out, it was nothing more than a box left by the US Postal Service! The postman had so cleverly hidden my delivered package that I hadn't even noticed it. Simply amazing - look at the picture*. Can you find it? It's like a "Where's Waldo?" but completely impossible.

After uncovering it from its hiding place, I brough it in and placde it on the floor, then inspected it for any damage which may have occured during its trip. Of course, it's in perfect shape...must have been the FRAGILE tape all around it. I'm glad someone really cares about my package enough to give it the white glove treatment.

So I opened it up and was able to fully enjoy my Stone Ruination IPA jersey and glass mug, happy that the Postal Service had gone to such great lengths to ensure that, not only was the package in perfect shape, it was completely invisible to any thefters.

Thank you all and goodnight,
Brian

looks like one of those "don't try this at home kiddies" things.

BTW you are not allowed to drink the ale until that jersey has 500 miles on it.
Ahh, another mashed package! Better than no package all all eh? ;) :D :p

Sure, as long as we can feed some to the squirrels. Now THAT would be a riot.

Hiding it under the doormat would have totally worked if the mat were the same color as the carpet. Nobody would have known. It would be as if it were invisible!

It's probably cleverly disguised as a shrubbery.

but just for the record the fact that you'd share your beer indicates you totally rock. dude, you wanna share it with the squirrels, you go right ahead and brave that attic with the centipedes and all that rodent scum. my old jeans are prolly still in the dumpster for you to borrow cuz they don't pick up til Monday.

Oh, that was me being sarcastic...I didn't trip over it at all. I was just trying to joke about their job of 'hiding' the package under the mat. It was hidden that way, though, and it was beat up when I got it.

I'll pass on the attic deal, centipedes freak me the **** out.

lol yea I honestly kinda figured, but being able to write a sentence that included references to tripping over beer and mashed packages struck me as funny as hell. yes, you're right, I'm a total muppet plus i think Harry & Kumar Go To White Castle is the pinnacle of cinematic comedy too.
