Air mail

Following the news that Amazon are piloting (pun intended) drones for the delivery of parcels, Waterstones have announced their Ornithological Waterstones Landing Service (O.W.L.S. for short). "O.W.L.S. consists of a fleet of specially trained owls that, either working individually or as an adorable team, will be able to deliver your package within thirty minutes of you placing your order."

Jolly good, folks - but don't think this will make me forgive you for dropping the apostrophe from your name or for your mission to turn your bookshops into coffee bars with bookshelves...

(Thanks to Matt for the link.)
