The U.S. Postal Service doesn’t deliver on Sundays. NFL football games are usually played on Sundays. A popular joke asks, how is an NFL team like the postal service (or an NFL player like the mailman)? They both don’t deliver on Sundays!
The joke has most frequently been told about the Philadelphia Eagles (a New York Giants and Dallas Cowboys division rival), with the Philadelphia Eagles logo and the USPS eagle logo both shown. “I told y’all Eagles don’t deliver on Sundays...y’all must’ve thought I was joking” was cited on Twitter on December 23, 2012 and went viral by August 2013. The joke soon was told about other NFL teams.
“The 2009 Giants should be sponsored by the US Postal Service because like postal workers, they don’t deliver on Sunday” was cited on Twitter on January 3, 2010—before the Eagles’ version.
