A friend for Beyonce.

Conversation with Victor:

me: I FOUND A MAILBOX FOR US.

Victor: We don’t need a mailbox.

me: And yet I still found one.  It’s like a goddamn Christmas miracle.

You've got mail, motherfucker.

Victor: Yeah.  You keep using that word.  I don’t think it means what you think it means.

me:  Miracle?  It means “A person or thing that is a marvelous example of something.”  I fucking dare you to find a more marvelous example of a metal chicken mailbox.  It’s the Beyonce of mailboxes.

Victor:  I’m taking all of your credit cards.

PS. I did not buy Miracle (the metal chicken mailbox) mostly because Victor accidentally quoted Princess Bride and it made me fall in love with him all over again.  And also because I felt bad about all the dead mice that I’d bought on ebay that morning.  Victor was not nearly as grateful as I thought he’d be because apparently Victor doesn’t understand how “compromise” works.  And also because he hadn’t been aware that I was buying a lot of dead mice on ebay.  And also, possibly, because he may have overheard me put an unnecessary metal chicken mailbox on layaway.  Honestly, it’s hard to tell with Victor.  That man is completely unpredictable.

    I pass a similar awesome metal rooster mailbox on the way to work. I always want to take a picture and send it to you with a note “I’ve found Beyonce’s husband!” but then I don’t take the pic because I’d think that would piss Beyonce off, and she’d be all “I can pick my own damn husband and I wouldn’t pick HIM if there was a worldwide outbreak of rust that took all the metal roosters down to dust.” Apparwbtly I think about Beyonce waaayyy too much. :) Hope she enjoys her new friend!

  34. You should so go to Trade Days at Canton, TX. It is the capitol of metal chickens. Apparently there is a demand for them now. I tried to take a picture of one but I was stopped. Some rogue metal welders are going around taking pictures of metal chickens made of scrap metal so they can make their own and sell for a profit. Somehow I seem to look like a welder. I’m thinking about investing in the metal chicken business. Funny though, I didn’t see anyone leaving with one.

  37. I wouldn’t care if I had 50 mailboxes. If I saw THAT one I would procure it immediately. That is one of the most awesome things I’ve ever seen. And I can tell, that if Victor didn’t have you around he would DIE of boredom.

Also, dead mice should be welcomed at your home by something whimsical. It sets the tone for their whole stay with you. You know, before Victor wins them all in a property settlement.

  159. “I’m taking all your credit cards” was in The Princess Bride? I somehow missed that part!

  160. The handle on the door part is such a missed opportunity. A simple drawer pull sort of thing would have sufficed, but the way they went with it puts me in mind of an Alien chestburster, which would have been far more entertaining.

    Make sure you write down somewhere that you bought the mice. Otherwise when they arrive in the mail you might think the cats have stolen your credit card…

  162. I saw this article the other day in the Post and immediately thought, “I wonder if he ran away to be with his true love, Beyonce?” And now I think, “This is a neighborhood that cares about its metal poultry!”

  164. You married well, my friend…

  165. Honestly, as much affection as I have for Beyonce, that mailbox is a tetanus shot waiting to happen.

    Miracle (the tetanus inducing mailbox) has the finest rust and sharp edges lovingly created by our neighbors to the south?

  168. Reading the comments is ALMOST as wonderful as your posts!
    “Cockbox”, “..it will cut you”, “Jay-Z”, “…clucking outstanding.”, “US poultry service”
    Thanks to everyone for making me laugh! (Again)
    You’ve got mail motherfucker.

  169. It worries me that Victor threatens you with cutting off your money. Surely, he doesn’t have that power in your house and you only make this up for fun? I was involved in domestic terrorism and this rings true, but I hope not for your sake.

  170. I need one of these. Pronto. ;). Thank u for making me laugh!!

  171. Bahhah well I hope Miracle found a good home somewhere

  175. Have you’ve heard of Walter Potters Museum of Curiosities? Check out amazingplanet.com, it was recently featured. Love your book, have read it twice and made several others read it!

  176. That caption should say “you’ve got mail, motherCLUCKER!”

  177. Are metal chickens always this profane? ;-)

  178. Should you ever visit Seattle, you should heck out this place: http://www.homegardenart.com/store/category/roosters. They have a brood, nay, a BEVY of Beyonces! I bought a metal cow from them a few months back. :-)

  179. So mother clucking funny!

  180. I dearly hope that you did actually buy, or at least plan to buy ASAP, that mailbox. It needs YOU, you need IT.

    CyndyBush recently posted All I Ever Wanted —.

  181. I need this to horrify the neighbors and my mail lady is like an uber bitch that sucks at getting mail in the right box. She needs to tango with the threat of tetanus! Break this chicken mother fucker!

  182. Would that be a … compromice?

  183. I want this mailbox…where did you find it.

  184. She’s beautiful! Perhaps she’s Beyonce’s long lost aunt?

  189. I fear your lettercarrier may cut his or her hand on the rusty edges! Fortunately the USPS makes sure their employees are up-to-date on their medical shots, so there should be no problems with lock-jaw for the federal employees, but problem a-plenty for mail thieves. So I guess that puts you one-up in favor of buying the mailbox.

  190. I think this is one of those moments where we all need to chip in to outsmart Victor, really. Maybe this is also a good time to start some fund, for when he makes you cut all your creditcards and – God forbid! – and have you for his permission to buy awesomeness.

    debby recently posted Ambition, baby!.

  191. you are magnificent. this made my day

  192. I think this mailbox is an “investment.”
    And it’s not towels.
    And anyone who quotes The Princess Bride, on purpose or not, gets my support.

  193. Inconceivable!

  194. Buaaahahahahaha!!! Cock Box!

    Between your post and that comment, my week is made. :)

  195. i love this so much. i would also like to know what it feels like to be the first person a million people think of when they see a giant metal chicken. because that seems sort of significant.

  198. And this is why my husband forbides to live in the suburbs where there are HomeOwners Associations. Because we can’t have COCK BOXES!!! Amazing how it all makes sense.

  202. Found the last me/Victor post to leave this comment. Your conversations with your husband are priceless and never fail to crack me up. I stole the format/idea for my latest post. Thanks for the laughs and inspiration!

    As long as you’re not buying R.O.U.S’s on ebay you should be ok:-) My hubby & I quote Princess Bride too….Jimi: “How was your shift?“ Me: “I’ve been mostly dead all day“…pretty bad-eh? lol
