Subject: was this a song lyric?

Written By: ChuckyG on 10/15/02 at 01:00 p.m.

"post it to yourself at the wrong address"

it was on a Penguin wrapper.. (love those things, gotta find them in a grocery store so I stop raiding the vending machine at work)..  it sounds like a Beatles lyric or something.. I know I remember a line like that from Steely Dan "Send it off in a letter, to yourself"... but I thought I remember the Beatles saying something similar...

Yeah, I saw that too... doesn't ring a bell... and I can't find it on Google. I did find this, though.

9. Make your Penguin last longer !
Attach an outboard motor to it and put it in the sea.

Post it to yourself at the wrong address.

Refuse to eat it until it has learnt algebra.

Give a short lesson in signing and dancing and turn it into a Boy band.

Tell it a joke in between each mouthful.

Open the wrapper by willpower alone.

Tell it everything about yourself before you eat it.

Personally, I found it kinda funny, in an overused cliché Classic Penguin kinda way.
