Ms. Wahl has sent another humorous piece to tickle my funny bone...

The text overlaying that funny print photograph says, "New mail art especially for you! Your dancing IUOMA friend, Svenja."

The reverse side of this hand-made card has another [actual] black-and-white photograph of lumberjacks... possibly doing a pole dance??!?...

There is another comic element to Svenja's mailing that didn't even hit me until I was looking over her whole envelope a second time.  One side of the envelope is rather minimalist... as in, it's almost completely unadorned in it's original blank white... except for a small, torn subtitle pasted on from some print magazine providing the title of Harold E. Edgerton's "Stroboscopic Photograph of a Milk Splash."

...Get it??  A photograph of a spilt milk splash would be a complete white-out!

Delightful whimsy.  Thank you, Svenja!
