Star Wars mailboxes coming, and, yes, stealing mailboxes is a federal offense

Apparently the post office is staffed by a bunch of geeks, as they've decided to celebrate the 30th anniversary of Star Wars by tricking out some mailboxes to look like R2D2. Apparently the USPS really knows the Star Wars audience, as they're not gonna place them on the street where obsessed fans can steal them in the dark of night. They'll be placed indoors under the protective eye of our nations postal workers.

Think any other government agencies will be joining the anniversary celebration? Perhaps cops will start dressing like storm troopers, or maybe the people at the DMV will start issuing licenses to fly spaceships. Hoo boy, that would sure be great! Or, they could spend our tax dollars on being efficient, but that's not really as fun.
