Civil Servants Conduct 4-Month Inquiry Into Best Way to Open Mail

Opening mail is an understandably complex task for your average government worker. It requires dexterity, an in-depth knowledge of the alphabet, and the ability to slit open a piece of folded paper without getting a paper cut.

To overcome these substantial obstacles, senior officials at Britain's Land Registry office decided to commission a four-month, taxpayer-funded inquiry into the best way to complete the mail-opening process.

Authorizing staff at the department's Till Hill office in Coventry, West Midlands, to spend up to £5,000 on a series of tests that would show how to best tackle the complex mail-opening issue, the officials were confident of groundbreaking results.

Shockingly, however, managers in charge of the inquiry proposed the exact same solution that dumbfounded observers had suggested in the first place...hiring additional employees to open the mail.

Might I humbly suggest a second inquiry into the Land Registry's management training program??
