Postal piñatas

Puyallup, WA, City Carrier Nellie Ibarra has a unique way of expressing her fondness for the Postal Service.

She's been making piñatas for 35 years and recently created one in the shape of a mailbox for the recent NALC picnic. She also created one in the shape of an Long Life Vehicle.

The idea of people hitting a paper mailbox with sticks is . . . interesting.

It may even be symbolic.

At least with this beating,  there was candy inside.

Care to Comment?

The symbolism is great, and she did a really nice job on the pinata too!

Wow--I really like her creative streak--and she did a great job--I'd buy a pinata from her.

a pinata or a beating?

I think we should send one of these to every office that is being reviewed for closure. Then hold a event (off property of course) where customers can take whacks at it...and when it opens...instead of candy...you would find notes on where you can still find a post office or ads for UPS and FedEx.
