I was browing the Parcelforce website in the vain hope that I might find out where the hell my Nintendo DS is when I came across this in the Ireland information section;
"Apart from the general prohibitions, the following are also prohibited: Japanese shaving brushes; items falsely bearing the markings of a Government Department; items which infringe authors' rights; goods made in prison; unseasoned celluloid; stamps and stamp impressions. Euro 48 Prohibitions: all arms and weapons, alcohol in proportions which will result in excise fees; food; gold; human remains; live animals and plants; money; personal effects; precious metals and stones; silver; works of art."
The rest of it makes sense, but Japanese shaving brushes?
you cant post stamps?
are japanese shving brushes like combs with razors in them?
there probably dangerous.
Maybe the bristles are made from an endangered animal?
I looked into this peculiarity a while ago and discovered that you might get anthrax from the bristles, apparently!
bit of a contradiction in itself dont you think
Thats only with parcelforce. They don't want to assist an post.
Do many lads still use shaving brushes in these days of tinned foam or gel ?
do many people post human remains these days??!?
What the hell is wrong with personal effects? OK if someone owned a particularly large poo collection then I could understand...
Right here buddy!
Thats the only way to shave.
...and can you still get shaving sticks (to make the lather)
nah the stuff comes in tubes now. Same principal though
