Introduction: Stolen Mail Gag
We recently moved to a new city full of hope, excitement and NAIVETY!
We never expected that our mail would be stolen. Well, it has and this is a step I have taken to assure that it will never happen again.
I have created a "Tracking Device" out of parts I had lying around. Your "Tracking Device" can be of any configuration. I figure that if you are dumb enough to steal people's mail, then you are likely to fall for this gag. I doesn't really do anything other than light up and it could possible get you into trouble with the post office if you actually send it. I recommend that you pull it out of your box before the mailman arrives.
