PELICAN UNDERSEA DELIVERY

Finding that Parrot Courier Mail was not sufficient for deliveries to sensitive underwater addresses, the Binklish East Merreminde Company developed a trustworthy group of trained pelican postal delivery personnel.

Scarabeus Binkel's pet parrot personally saw to the training of the new pelicans, as he was a seasoned postal courier.

Here we see Emperor Binkel, showing off his new official stamps for the regent of Merreminde as well as his own appointed governor of Binklish Vuyana.

BINKEL'S BAY
\
Many of Scarabeus Binkel's original crew married into the mermaids, and set up homes at the bottom of Binkel's Bay in the Barbaru Frie Stajt, Binkel's first colony. The empire grew as he added Vuyana and finally Binklish East Merreminde to his colonial holdings.

NOTES ON THE CULTURAL AND POLITICAL DIVISIONS OF THE ISLE OF BUTO

The Isle of Buto has at least three main cultural regions: Buttoni in the north, where Templetown or Templetooni is the national capital to Butuni or Butunia in the southwest, home of migrant tribes from the western seas, to Butto in the southeast, a rebellious region that instituted the Loco Post Rebellion against the central government.

Butuni soon joined Butto in it's rebellion against the Buttonians. There was outcry in the southern provinces that postal rates were too high. Thus a series of  'postage undue' stamps were created to give rebates to postal customers. 

The Boobie Courier services found in the Isle of Buto are also characterized by regional operations.
Blythe's Boobie Courier Post from Butto was the first historically. The semi-postals you see here are from Butuni.

To confuse matters even more, there are alternative spellings of many of these regional names. It is a matter for the specialist. LOL.

THE GOPHER COURIER EXPRESS

During the difficult period of internal strife in Southern Digbyland that indigenous partisans decided to take their original colony back. Changes were made in the mails. It occurred  to many that a special type of mail courier service was required to counter the activities of the Mole Mail tunnel system that had been developed by the Digby Brothers.

A communication network of gopher tunnels soon connected not only post offices in Southern Digbyland, but in many nation states of the Barbaru Coast.

Scarabeus Binkel, the head of government of the Frie Stajt, was imprisoned in the Nedtown Pen. He began to send important messages by way of the gophers, utilizing the unique Tunnelli-Gram System.

The Advantages of Gopher Mail Over Ghost Parrot Mail

The letter above, carrying cosmetic samples, could never have been delivered by Ghost Parrot. The new Gopher Couriers, working in teams, found no difficulties in transporting reasonably large parcels.

See my posts on the Ghost Parrot by clicking on the 'parrot  courier' label in my Blog Search in the column to the left.
