The delicious irony of the Taylor Swift mail-dumping scandal

Taylor Swift never got your proposal or your baseball card or whatever else it is you people send her:

Over the weekend, a woman found hundreds of unopened fan letters to the superstar, many covered in glitter and heart stickers, in a dumpster behind a Nashville school. She scooped up the letters and took them to a local TV station, reports WKRN-TV.

I was like, ‘That’s weird,’ ” Kylee Francescan told Nashville’s News 2 Investigates. “There were like hundreds of letters in there to Taylor Swift and I’m like, ‘Oh my gosh!’ I didn’t know if they were stolen [or] discarded, so I threw them in a box. And I’m like, ‘Somebody needs to let Taylor know.’ “

Somebody needs to let Taylor know, indeed — but I would recommend communicating by means other than the post.

In the meantime, I promised you irony, and irony I intend to deliver:


That’s right: Taylor Swift has her own line of greeting cards through American Greetings, AKA snail mail, AKA recycle fodder. So while you may not be able to get your letters through to Taylor, she’s happy to pass her personalized paper cards on to you:

Which means she just might be the first celebrity in history to put out more fan mail than she actually receives.
