Why is this in my Inbox/Mailbox?

by Mémé

Now that most of my transactions are online, the amount of incongruent commercial and solicitation snail mail has fortunately decreased.     And even that is easier to discard, because the recycle bin is adjacent to the mailbox and it does not even have to enter the house.   I can recall a subscription to Horse Lover or some such that I received many years ago.   I called them and it took quite a while to convince them that I had not subscribed.  I said, I live in an apartment in the city.   Someone is playing a joke.

But even with spam and bulk mail filters on the electronic inbox, I occasionally find myself on the receiving end of newsletters that give me a chuckle.     The current one that has been coming for months is This Week in Weed.   It is all about the Massachusetts introduction of recreational marijuana sales.

What strange humorous stuff comes to your home or computer?   Does it bother you or amuse you?    Do you take steps to reduce both paper and electronic junk mail?
