After a photo of mail collection boxes on a flatbed truck in Boston quickly garnered significant attention on Twitter, on Friday, the U.S. Postal Service clarified why the boxes were being removed.
USPS spokesman Steve Doherty told reporters that quite simply too many turds are being mailed through the USPS, and the boxes are becoming health hazards.
On Thursday, President Donald Trump acknowledged he is withholding money to the USPS to make it more difficult for the postal service to handle an anticipated surge of mailed turds as the election approaches.
A spokesman for the Post Office said Friday, "They are being removed because too many people are mailing turds to the White House. They are becoming a health hazard. Words of advice: If you are adamant on mailing turds to the President, Anderson Cooper, Ellen Degeneres, Prince Andrew, Miley Cyrus, Meghan Markle, Taylor Swift, or The Pope, please use FEDEX. USPS have had enough of this shit (literally)."
