A DISCUSSION OF THE PLAY -POST EARLY FOR CHRISTMAS

Period 2


1. A discussion of POST OFFICE JOKES


A lady bought a stamp at the post office and asked the clerk, 
"Shall I stick it on myself?"
  The clerk replied, "It'll get there faster if you stick it on 
the envelope."

*******************************************************************
I wrote a letter to the Postmaster General once on ways to
improve mail service.  It got lost.

*********************************************************************

2.HERE IS A PLAY WHICH REVOLVES ROUND A POST OFFICE.LET US READ AND FIND OUT WHAT IT IS ABOUT  ?
a. One day, about a week before Christmas, Percy has to deliver some special mail along the branch line.All goes well until he finds a deep snowdrift in the valley. Despite having a snowplough, Percy is unable to push his way through and ends up stuck there for the night. The next day, the clouds have cleared and Harold is able to take off and collect the mail to deliver on time. Percy, on the other hand, has to wait to be pulled out the following afternoon!
b.One day, confusion breaks out in a small British post office about a few days before Christmas when funny people like Mrs.Smith and Mrs Jones visit there .The situation turns out to be grave and hilarious , when a parcel is mistaken for a time bomb.
2. Is humour always completely innocent and harmless ? Is humour at the cost of creating inconvenience to others acceptable ? Which character in the play is creates unnecessary panic in the play ? Can you justify him ?
Make an assessment after reading the play.( This can be given as home assignment )
