Seven years ago, someone had had enough of Bill Schmalfeldt’s BS, and that person placed an order with a company in Europe that mails packages of manure. The Cabin Boy™ went ballistic, threatening the direst of dire direness to whoever placed the order. This Bonus Prevarication Du Jour from seven years ago today, pointed out that Schmalfeldt was simply wrong about the facts and the law related to the gift he received.

Perhaps Tupperware isn’t allowed, but zip-lock bags are apparently OK packaging for manure sent through the mail.
A simple bit of googling shows plenty of companies offering to sell various kinds of manure with shipping via U. S. Mail. It’s most commonly offered by businesses catering to mushroom growers who only need small quantities for use as fertilizer. BTW, horse manure seems to be preferred for mushrooms.
UPDATE—OK, let’s assume that the Cabin Boy™ files a complaint with the Postal Inspection Service. So what? The only result will be that there’s one more government office where eyes roll when they hear the name Schmalfeldt.

I will simply point out that Amazon sells manure, and many small quantity orders are delivered by the USPS.
That was one of my favorite Feldtdowns of all time.
