In the Ankh-Morpork Post Office Handbook 2007, it is revealed that Cut-Me-Own-Throat Dibbler had the inspired idea of setting up a Mail Order service to provide clothing-related goods through the post. He began this on the 16th May one year. However, by the 17th May the service was decisively closed by order of the Patrician, who viewed the pune or play-on-words involved as offensive to his sensibilities and one step away from unlicenced jesting. This is despite Dibbler's protest that it wasn't just mail, he was also prepared to deal in plate armour and hardened leather front-and-backs.
