To celebrate his girlfriend’s birthday, Hu Seng, from Chongqing city, thought it would be a nice surprise if he mailed himself – yes, his physical self – to his girlfriend.
Hilarity ensued when the package sort of “got lost” in the system and the expected delivery time of 30 minutes stretched out to three hours. During which Hu Seng failed to break out of a cardboard box and didn’t want to ruin the “surprise”. She would have been really surprised if she’d opened the box and he was dead.
For some reason this brings to mind the Monty Python Dead Parrot sketch.
As a police officer of mine has said many times, “If it wasn’t for stupid people, we wouldn’t have jobs.”
