"I just received my Marathon swag today. My premiums were obviously too much fun for one envelope, as somewhere between here and Jersey City, the back panel blew out like grandpa's union suit trap door . The Post Office rendered a big white patch, a lot of packing tape, and a profuse apology on a surrounding poly bag. The good news is all the swag was intact and accounted for upon receipt.
Here's where it gets interesting: also included in the repaired envelope was an instructional DVD on the use of the Dermabond ProPen topical skin adhesive, along with a Dermabond logo surgical cap.
I have to assume one of two things: WFMU has entered into a crafty corporate sponsorship deal due the amount of bloodletting and injuries that accompany their mailings, or the USPS has found a creative new way to clear detritus from the dead letter office. Pictures are attached [ed: click to enlarge] for your amusement."
One might also imagine that some hapless NJ Postal employee out there is improperly applying their topical skin adhesive. Maybe that's how the package got accidentally torn open?? Oh dear!
