Cost of postage!

Here's an amusing little story about a curious boy who asked how much it costs to send a Christmas card to Mars.

Great story. :-D

I wonder if the total took into account the weight of all the stamps they'd need to put on? Comes to that, I wonder whether the cost of sending a first-class stamp would outweigh (geddit?) its value?

(And yes, I know they could use a franking machine...)
