If you thought the USPS had issues nowadays (my friend is still waiting on her retainer), you wouldn't believe the goings on that took place way back when.
According to OMG Facts, when the United States Postal Service first got started back in 1913, Americans were so into sending packages across the country at a reasonable rate, that at least two stuck a bunch of stamps on kids and sent them on their way.
At that point, the Postmaster General had to step in and play social services, implementing regulations on what was and wasn't appropriate to ship.
