I think we've already had posts on how easy it is to get tests and
how for one has to travel.

The baby would have to be quite tiny to fit through a pillar box slit.
From time to time round here I see pillar box slits made even narrower
by having a plate screwed across them with a slit in the plate only two
millimetres wide. I asked the postie why that was and he told me it was
because people had been posting pizzas.

In Belfast in the '70s it was done to stop bombs being posted. When shards of cast iron (or whatever pillar boxes are made of) go flying a lot of nasty injuries are done.

And the pizza is rendered inedible!

I have also seen pillar boxes modified for that reason on the mainland.

In my opinion, pizza is always inedible.

Can you get him to remove the plates and give him my address?

What's the postage for a pizza? Shall I write your address on the
underside of the base with a felt-tipped pen?

Postage shmostage. As long as you use an edible, food grade ink.

I was dining out one evening when a pizza delivery person tried to make
a delivery to somebody in the restaurant (a totally different company).
I never did find out whether it was a prank, intended for a member of
staff, an idiot of a customer, an idiot of a deliverer, or whether he
made the delivery or got thrown out.

I have seen an Uber delivery guy going into a (very recently) closed
restaurant. Didn't give me a lot of confidence in their fare...

Peter persistently posted pizza to Pisa from the piazza.

Chris once received a letter that had been dropped into a little used post
box, it had been nibbled away by a snail - nibbled away in tapered layers
it was!

I rather admire the way they do that - can't believe they get much
nutrition from paper though.

I have a crate outdoors in which I store used bottles, since we
do not have doorstep recycling. I notice that the ones that have
been there some time have their paper labels nibbled.

Presumably they digest the cellulose - can’t believe the stamp or gum offer
much though. The corner that was eaten into was not the corner with the
stamp anyway.

If you're a snail stuck inside a post box, there is a limited menu.

I am left wondering if that was a very fast snail or a very long
interval between posting the letter and collecting it from the box.

I think it would only take one night. There may have been more than one
snail/slug.

Round 'ere, there are postboxes which look as though they haven't been
