Amazon’s Delivery Drones

December 4, 2013

amazonAmazon wants to use drone-like octocopters to make deliveries to their customers. While many cynics think this drop-from-the-sky delivery service will never take off, the Stork had only one comment “Big Deal.”

She teaches the how-to lessons of humor and publishing at conferences and workshops throughout the country including The Philadelphia Writers' Conference and Erma Bombeck Writers Workshop.

    Larry’s right, this ain’t gonna fly in black-helicopter wary areas. But a stork might.

      Or as Mike Oberg said “Santa” I hope Amazon doesn’t ruin it for the good drop from the sky delivery folk!

    I’d like to order some pre-filled water balloons and have them delivered as gifts to someone I don’t like.

    This won’t be easy, because I like almost everybody, but someone, somewhere probably deserves this.

      I deserve this. I massively deserve this but if and when it happens, I know who to blame first!

        Sorry, Bill, but you don’t qualify. You are one of the people I LIKE! 😉

      HA HA! This idea has merit and Bill Y seems to be ready to be the target.

    You know, I may order a pellet gun from Amazon and then anything ordered from them and delivered by drone in the future will allow me to get in some practice at high flying moving targets

    Yes, but a new X-box drone delivery is far less time consuming than the stork’s delivery of a new baby, unless of course you’re addicted to Mad Birds or Dungeons and Dragons
