US Postal Service digs the Postal Service (now)

Postal Service Tale: Indie Rock, Snail Mail and Trademark Law

[T]his week the United States Postal Service - the real one, as in stamps and letters - signed an agreement with Sub Pop granting a free license to use the name in exchange for working to promote using the mail. Future copies of the album and the group's follow-up work will have a notice about the trademark, while the federal Postal Service will sell the band's CD's on its Web site, potentially earning a profit. The band may do some television commercials for the post office.

True conversation, Saturday night:
Me (slightly drunk): "So the Postal Service was upset about the Postal Service using their name, kind of, because they saw it as copyright infringement, so the Postal now going to be promoting the Postal Service, and they're going to be doing commercials and stuff, and the Postal Service is going to be available at the...Postal Service."
Friends who were with me: ...
Good times.

they should use all of the conversation that nobody girl had in a beer commercial with the tag line; "ah the things we say when we're drunk".
