Actually, jams, this picture isn't mine. I couldn't get to the files of the catfish box picture I took until Papi gets home. This is my stand in fish mailbox that hangs around just like an understudy, praying, and waiting for the lead fish to get sick!

I should have my originals up in about an hour.

Stacie said...

Funny.

Autofocused said...

Excellent :-)

Amber said...

Not just for dinner? Criminy. Does that mean I need to start eating it for breakfast and lunch, too?....

Jarid & Caydon's Wishlist said...

Lol. Cute.

This Eclectic life said...

Yeah, but can it sing?

FelineFrisky said...

I prefer that mailbox over the singing wall mounted version! LOL D :)

letha said...

That would scare my postman.

Toni said...

I hate to admit this, but that would be the PERFECT fathers day gift for the Hubs. Eww

Shaz said...

I have 2 Danes that eat the mail(MAN!) . . .LOL. Good pic x

Patois said...

It doesn't play one of those songs like the singing bass, does it?

Kimberly said...

But I don't like fish.

No Cool Story said...

Is it dead?

BarnGoddess said...

how cool, I want one........to give to my FIL for Fathers Day.

Tis me.... said...

I guess he's gotten his RDA of iron.

sara - The Estrogen Files said...

Hee Hee hee - Hubbers would LOVE this one! We've got one of those UGLY ones for the whole neighborhood up on the corner. Sucks.

Comedy + said...

I have to tell you, I've never seen a mailbox like this before. I guess you have to go to Perpetual Chaos, US to find these. That explains it :) Too funny, well not for my mailbox, but someone elses!

Carrotjello said...

I won't comment until I know that this isn't yours.

Pearls of Wisdom said...

Too funny. Thanks for sharing. Happy WW.

Joyful Days said...

That's a hoot!

Amelia Elias said...

I've seen these, they're... um... distinctive. My favorite mailbox, though, was one shaped like a cow--only they customized the box backward. Instead of opening the cow's mouth or moving its head to put the mail in, the mailman had to--you guessed it--pull the tail and open its butt.

Well, I guess it *might* be a statement about bills or something.

Rav`N said...

*lol* I want a shark mailbox... or maybea Moby Dick one. I just want to see the mailman stick his hand down the mouths of one of those

JennyMcB said...

So does anyone ever leave you worms in the fishbox? Does he get a costume for halloween?
But of course I have seen a fish mailbox in my town.

PJ said...

At least the guts are easy to clean out on those suckers.

Lynne said...

Cute! I have some friends that would LOVE this.

Burg said...

My husband wants a car mailbox. Personally, I just want our neighbors to get our mailbox and feel generous enough to pay our bills.

madd said...

would fit right in over at our neighborhood..there are some funny ones out there..happyWW

elasticwaistbandlady said...

I travel out to a rural area outside of Houston once a week. Judging from the numerous fish mailboxes, it must be some sort of requirement or deed restriction agreement that you must have a fishy mailbox to live there.

Hey jams, I keep thinking this would make a perfect mailbox for my gynecologist. Maybe one of the Snapper variety!

mcewen said...

Great icon, great pictures, great blog. I've found a little escape route.
Cheers

Celeste said...

LOLOL What bait did you use?

Annie said...

The mortgage company didn't believe me when I told them a fish ate my house payment.

Elizabeth-W said...

Painful. Simply painful.
Unless Andy Warhol made it, in which case it then becomes commentary on blah blah blah blah...

Simone ( I will exercise for comments) said...

hahaha - Good one.

An Ordinary Mom said...

It's never been for dinner in my house.

jenn in holland said...

Ab Fab! Really, everyone should have one!

DebD said...

looks like they were fun to make!

Happy WW

Deb on the Run

Tim Appleton (Applehead) said...

Well that is about the most interesting mailbox I've ever seen!

Rayne said...

It would be ultra perfect if it would sing, too.

Chris said...

That mailbox reminds me of that talking fish in that Wonderfalls show.

I have a sudden urge to eat fish.

Melanie said...

That is just too funny!

Denise Patrick said...

Interesting!

Suzanne said...

So does the mail inside smell like rotten fish guts when it gets taken out? ;)

Thanks for your your long distance dedication! It made me smile. There's nothing like a little Ho Jo to brighten my day! :)

amy said...

tegdirb92 said...

Angelika said...

Never seen a mailbox like that.

Happy WW.

carronin said...

That one looks so real I'm afraid it might bite my hand when I reach in for the mail.

Rhonda said...

Apparently these are very popular in Houston! I found one a few months ago out here in Pearland.
