The TrueSoldier Rants

The Thoughts of a Conservative mind.

Time to get your Cliff Clavin on!

When I first saw this I thought for certain it had to be something out of the Onion, but no it is for real. The Postal Service has announced plans to launch a new product line of apparel and accessories. Via the Daily Caller:

The USPS product line will be sold under the brand name “Rain Heat & Snow,” a homage to the service’s unofficial motto, “Neither snow nor rain nor heat nor gloom of night stay these couriers from the swift completion of their appointed rounds.”

USPS signed on with the apparel company Wahconah Group, Inc. to launch the product line, which will start off with men’s apparel and add a women’s line in the future.

“This agreement will put the Postal Service on the cutting edge of functional fashion,” Postal Service corporate licensing manager Steven Mills said in a statement. “The main focus will be to produce Rain Heat & Snow apparel and accessories using technology to create ‘smart apparel’ — also known as wearable electronics.

What could possibly go wrong with this latest plan to fix the postal woes?

(update): Here’s one thought of something that could go wrong. If this clothing line is emblazoned with the USPS Emblem could the clothing not be worn by identity thieves trying to steal mail from mailboxes without suspicion (especially if the clothing line looks anything like a postal workers uniform)?

(update): Thanks for the h/t from Doug Powers over at michellemalkin.com
