Most Interesting Junk-mail Ever

Coming home from work tonight we noticed the flag was up on the mail box.  We stopped and there was one lonely item in there...addressed, of course, to hubby.
Hubby's first & last name and address was hand written in blue pen and the return address was for somewhere in California.  We don't know anyone in California, let alone a Hiro Kumato.  A hand written envelope with electronically stamped postage raises a flag.  
We had to open it and see what was going on.

This little note was in the envelope.
The signature is printed on, not hand written, and it's on some sort of company letterhead.
Harmony is strength, don't you know.

The article mentioned is a 3 page 'newspaper' article.

There is no name on the newspaper, just "Weekly Journal" printed on the top left page.
Printed in tiny letters on the top of each page is this:

The beginning of the article claims that it was originally written in 2005 as part of a series but has now been reprinted in its entirety due to demand from 'esteemed readers'.
It's a huge sales pitch for this 'tea' product called Cho-Wa that has amazing healing benefits and will make you live longer. It ends with the details of how to purchase this incredible product.

All in all, I was impressed by the efforts Kumato Labs made.  I mean a fake newpaper article, hand addressed envelopes, a note that says Harmony is Strength - hubby and I got some good laughs.  Hubby said "I think this is blog fodder for you".  true story, blog fodder is all Kumato Labs is good for.


  1. Well, what do we have here? Isn't that special? (SNL Church Lady Voice)

    Sorry, couldn't resist! lol

  2. My junk mail isn't nearly as interesting as that. I usually just get mail for my brother in law. For some reason, people thinks he lives in my house.

  3. That kind of direct mail is a bit full-on.

    We don't have that sort of stuff here in Australia.

    Harmony to you.

  4. We got the same thing today

  5. I've never seen junk mail like that before. Harmony to you and may the force be with you.

  6. I got it too, minus the newspaper ad. Googled it name and got your page!


Quips & Queries all appreciated!
