A couple of weeks ago Cornelius finally returned the ‘Paint me’ canvas I’d sent him. Instead of painting it, he plastered it with 16 stamp-vending-machine-stamps of different values, adding up to the neccessary postage of €1.45. With Cornelius taking the interpretation of “paint” quite far, I decided to do the same with the postage. Instead of using stamps, I used superglue (admittedly, a lot;-) and coins, also adding up to the required postage of 1.45:
It actually took the canvas quite a while to be delivered (I mailed it Feb 9th, JC confirmed delivery on Feb 18th. He sent me the following snapshot of the canvas delivered:
So, Deutsche Post actually spent quite some time removing the coins and thereby tearing the canvas, as I had hoped it would. From the purple writing I assume that somebody in the mail sorting facility decided that the mailman was supposed to charge Nachentgelt (additional fee for non-standard mail/for annoying the people in the mail sorting facility) from Cornelius as well.
