A Quickie

Today, the little kumquat discovered that the people at the United States Postal Service are dumber than toast. That is to say, they are completely illiterate and lacking in simple matching skills. She does understand that a great quantity of mail passes through these people's hands. But what she does not understand is how on earth the numbers "300" and "128" could possible resemble "1731." She knows that they're all preceeded by "P.O. Box," but there must be more to it than that...

Ah ha!!! The kumquat has got it-- the USPS is trying to communicate with her in code! The wrong numbers represent parts of a secret message meant only for her! Now, all she needs to do is crack the code! And the little kumquat can SAVE THE WORLD!!!

Or maybe Post Office employees are really just dumber than toast.
