Mail Yourself

Yesterday, the New Daily paper reported that Australia Post will soon begin offering a service to allow people to mail themselves across country:

The scheme, to be called AirMale and AirFemale, will see the ailing postal service partner with a low-cost airline to deliver customers for a one-way fee of just $35 to any airport in Australia serviced by the carrier...

While those opting for the new AirMale and AirFemale services won’t have to “post” themselves in envelopes or boxes, they will have to fly in the cargo hold of aircraft.

Of course, it was just an April Fool's Day hoax, but had to share it since it touched on a theme (people posting themselves through the mail) recently discussed here on WU.

Actually, it sounds like a good idea! For only $35AUD folks can 'go postal'.

Crammed into the cargo hold of an old puddle-jumper would be world's better than flying Delta!

Does the service offer frequent flyer miles?

Do they offer insurance against frostbite?

I don't know the Austrailian Post Office laws & rules. But, after a wild weekend in Melbourne you wind up broke. No problem mate. You just write on your forehead "RETURN TO SENDER" and get a free trip home.

There is the problem of getting out of the Dead Letter Office!
