Before the technology of pressurized air and skintight wetsuits, people who went down to the depths of the ocean had to wear these diving suits. The helmets were made of heavy copper, which not only provided air but also weighed the divers down. The canvas suits they wore weren’t exactly waterproof but did offer protection from the elements.
Somebody – or some business – put together this interesting mailbox holder to help people think back to those years. It looks like this adventurous diver has just found a chest full of sunken treasure, but he’s really just found a bunch of advertisements from banks, car repair stores, and Target.
Bite My Shiny Metal Mailbox!
Another piece of fine art for the collection. This is straight from the classic adult animated television series “Futurama.” It's everybody's favorite metal-manipulating, beer-swilling, cigar-smoking robot, Bender Bending Rodriguez!
He's carrying a twelve-pack of his favorite beer and giving you a friendly wave and a big, happy smile. Hopefully, but the case of beer is sadly empty! The only solution? Put mail inside it! It's not what the real Bender would want, but this is just a mailbox. It might even be made out of metal. It could be plastic, or maybe wood. The real Bender would take GREAT umbrage with such a construction, but he won't be born until 2996.
We Hope This Person Works as a Vet
Seeing a cow along the side of the road is a common sight if you live - or drive - anywhere in the Midwest. These cows are so common that seeing a different animal is almost a cause for surprise. This mailbox, then, isn’t all that eye-catching if you’re familiar with the sight of the friendly bovines.
What is notable, however, is the way the mail does enter the cow, which is through the rear end. Of course, for farmers and people who work with animals, sometimes that is an avenue that has to be utilized for one procedure or another.
It’s Ready for i1ts Flight
Golf lovers rejoice at this mailbox. Look at it perfectly positioned, just like a golf ball on a tee - don’t you just want to take a swing? One fine designer figured out a way to make a post and a mailbox that looks just like a tee and a ball, even with all the little divots on the ball and the memorable shape of the tee.
It looks like the kind of thing that you could find to buy somewhere online for a pretty good price, but it might also be possible to build your own if you have the time, materials, and knowledge.
People Had Bigger Hands Back in the Day
Wow! Someone took an original Game Boy and turned it into a mailbox! While the very first handheld gaming device was certainly big – and beige, just as you see in the picture – it wasn't actually this big. To make a mailbox just like Nintendo's big game-changer, it comes down to pure creative skill.
Which game do you think is slotted in there right now? Of course, the obvious choice is something like “Pokémon Red” or “Pokémon Blue,” or “Kirby's Dream Land,” or “Metroid II: Return of Samus,” but we're going to go with a little bit of a dark horse. We're going to say it's “Paperboy 2.”
