WORDLESS WEDNESDAY ~ Don't EVEN think about it!

Not quite wordless...Out in the country where we live, occasionally young people will "ride the roads" and smash mail boxes with baseball bats. This ingenious person seems to have found a unique way to prevent this from happening!

Ohhhh...so clever! I love this shot, I guess you can say that the owner went "postal" on those mischievious youngsters! LOL
Mine's up too.

That is a great photo. Love that the mailbox "Eats" the baseball bat. Well it looks like rows of spikey teeth to me.

Great photojournalism

Heth said...

Great photo! And a good idea for rural postal customers.

Lazy Daisy said...

Couldn't resist it! Off to Indy hopefully home by Tuesday. Can you stoke the fire once a day, it looks like we are in for cold weather. Thanks neighbor!

Viamarie said...

Brilliant idea.

My WW is up.

Robin said...

Funny photo. I am glad you took the time to explain it because I was sitting there staring at it trying to figure out what decorating theme we were going for here.

Digsite said...

LOL! Awesome!

Gattina said...

Lol, at least this person has a lot of phantasy ! I would call this a hedgecock mailbox ! Should do ours the same way, I think our mailman would be delighted !

Holly said...

They sure did find a way! ;o)

Just Expressing Myself said...

Beautiful shot.
Artistic and practical.
A real slice of Americana.
He/she should get a patent on that system.
Take care,

I love mailboxes with not only character, but an attitude as well!
Really cool shot!
Happy WW!

Ha! He's got spikes going through his. How ingenious.

Thanks for stopping by.

Hmmm... in MY neighborhood of the country, the kids would take that as an "open invitation" -- they would take THAT bat and proceed to bash the box - from the sides! Good TRY though!!!

Melissa said...

In my old neighborhood, people bricked their mailboxes to prevent the bats from breaking them. Lots of shredded bats from kids trying!

Why would people do that to mailboxes? I guess his is protected!

That is so awesome. Around ehre they like to knock over mailboxes instead of smashing them.
