    You never know!! Amusingly the first thing that came up when I googled Bagpuss was this pic..so I think Bagpuss was the drugs cat.

    I wonder what puss did have in those boots, maybe it was throwing knives?

    Sounds very rude "googling bagpuss" and I think knives are a bit tame for a hardcore feline like puss in boots, maybe a sub machine gun or some kind of nuclear weapon in which puss plans total world domination by bringing the worlds postal services to a standstill.

    I'll google your bagpuss!

    Anyway, no offence or anything, but couldn't common sense have pretty much answered this whole thread... at least when combined with knowledge (that I assume we all have) that postcodes, postmen and trains that carry mail exist...

    Anyone else have a bit of a soft spot for the old Royal Mail? Regardless of buggering up occasionally, I'm genuinely impressed that it all still functions... plus I liked Postman Pat.

    You push the letter in the mailbox, it gets emptied, goes to the mail centre where people sort it into 1st and 2nd class, then they get whizzed through the machine to mark the stamps, then they are sorted in the depot into postcode/geographical areas and bagged for transportation to the big mail processing centre that has the machines that read the addresses, from there it's distributed to the appropriate local mail centre who get the bags, sort into streets/areas and give to the relevant postmen/women to deliver on their runs in the morning.

    Stuff with no stamps....depends. They'll usually post a little card to the recipient saying they have the item and if they want it they have to pay a surcharge which is the cost of the postage + a handling fee. If they don't claim it I don't know whether they'd post it back to you or dispose of it. Altho coz it's Xmas now I think some of the people sorting are feeling a bit more generous and not pulling the stuff with no stamps if it looks like a genuine mistake...
