Postal

Take Two: Given a second chance, how would this be different? Rewrite the ending to a book, movie, scene, fable, quote, etc.
Neither snow nor rain nor heat nor gloom of night stays these couriers from the swift completion of their appointed rounds.
Rewrite this line which is often mistaken for the USPS Creed. (They have no official motto or creed.)

Time for a Winner!!! (12/14/09)
Neither snow nor rain nor heat nor gloom of night stays these couriers from the completion of their appointed rounds; but it sure might slow 'em down!

Neither snow nor rain nor heat nor gloom of night stays these couriers from the swift completion of their appointed rounds of...GOLF! At least that much can be said for Larry, my George Hamilton-y (<–Perpetually tanned. Either that, or he’s really a baseball glove.) designated deliverer of “fan mail” (<– Mostly bills, but a girl can dream, can’t she?!), always with golf balls in his pockets, just in case (Hmm. Come to think of it, are those golf balls??), who wears his little, blue postal shorts year ‘round and just a tad (or two OR three) shorter than “regulation,” encouraging my next door neighbor to always beg this question of our courier sent from Above, whose motives might also include being featured in a beef cakey-type calendar --generously donating of his time and physique for fund raising purposes alone, mind you-- somewhere down the road, probably when a tee time is unavailable: “Oh, Larry! Is that ‘package’ for me?!”

Neither sunshine nor dry roads nor warm weather nor light traffic will stay these couriers from their determination to deliver as late as possible. Clearly labeled mailboxes, large house numbers, and blatant street signs shall not stay these couriers from their mission to continue to wreak havoc by making errors in their delivery.

A snowy or rainy or stormy day
Won't keep your faithful postman at bay.
But FedEx, UPS,
And those darn Internets--
Those just might scare them away.
