A new law has been passed where you can have any mail stopped which you consider offensive: The law was passed to smite smut—always good for the idiot vote—but—the bill is so worded that you are the sole judge of what is offensive.

If you feel that your congressman’s newsletter, a religious appeal or the normal junk mail is offensive all you have to do is go to the post office and ask for P.O. form 123 and fill out the form giving your name and address and the name and address of the firm which you want to stop sending you advertisements. You do not have to give any reason or justification why you find the mail’ offensive.

The post office is then required by law to send a prohibitory order directing the sender to refrain from any further mailing of any kind to the complainant.

The bill is expected to be repealed once the public learns it can be used to stop junk mail. The advertising agencies are bound to protect their god given dollar-rights to deluge your house with junk mail at tax-payer expense even at the expense of a little smut getting through.

But the law is still effective and while the law is effective you can have fun declaring junk mail or your congressman’s newsletter offensive.
