How old is a frozen kipper?

I don’t know, I-Spy, but they can’t be that young as they have to be old enough to smoke.

I expected the old joke by now!!

If smoking kills you, how come it cures kippers?

Coat at the ready.

Do you remember when you could send kippers through the post bowt any packaging, just with an address label tied to them? I used to do parcel sorting on Christmas Post in the Mid-1960's. People often posted Manx Kippers, and the whole parcel sorting area smelled of them.

What happened if the address label mysteriously vanished

It did happen. Though often the now detached label was still there to be found. They were nowt like today's kippers, which would just fall apart. They were a far more robust article.

Game was similarly sent unwrapped, and just with an address label. Quite a few pheasants at Christmas time getting bashed around in the jumble of packages and bleeding over other peoples parcels. Used to create quite a mess getting mixed up with the loose alcohol.

People posted bottles of whisky, similarly bowt any packaging and just address label tied around the neck. They frequently smashed. Usually the neck of the bottle broke. So posties finished off the contents. It would only have spilled over all the other packages. I never did, as I was scared of the glass shards.
