Here's my mail for today: important news (I'm sure) from the super-offical and very reputable...

DEPARTMENT OF ISSUANCE
Where is the Department of Issuance? Who works there? Is it in the total loser end of Washington DC where you end up after testing rubber stamps for 45 years? "Hello Dept. of Issuance. Yup, of course we issued it, everything comes thru here. Yup, guaranteed, that's right. AND recorded. You can bet your bottom dollar. No question. AND it had an eagle on it. Well alright then. Goodbye."
