I haven't received much mail art from the UK since I joined IUOMA more'n four years ago - no sir. But what came in today from Norwich (John Cleese: CLOCKWISE!) as the third piece of three is so amazing that I've almost forgotten the reset of my fellow members from GB:
"Put my package in your mail box baby so it won't get lost
But you caught me thinkin' foul play with this cheesy piece of post
Throw me a dime, throw me a line
'Cause there's a hippo in the bathtub with the blues

Six pages with pasted comic strip clippings all related to Feng Shui (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Feng_shui):

Making a girl smile at my age - that's something, ain't it? I'm a vegetarian since January 1st, 1974. That makes four decades now. Happiness is a very individual thing. Don't know whether and if so, in what way being veggie could be linked with it. But I don't believe that happiness is a warm gun - no sir (but a digital camera is, of course, something different):
Thank you very much Gina Ulgen. Great mail art day today!
