USPS To Destroy Perfectly Fine Stamps Because People Are Too Stupid To Be Allowed To Use Them

Legit, this is happening:

You might think this was a parody, but apparently not. The federal government has ordered the destruction of a series of fifteen postage stamps intended to get kids to be more active after sports safety advocates said three of the stamps raised safety concerns, including illustrations depicting kids “skateboarding without kneepads, and doing a headstand without a helmet.” [Postal News]

The nefarious stamps in question show clip art kids engaged in all kinds of dangerous behaviors, as you can see:


ALERT THE AUTHORITIES, THAT CARTOON CHILD IS DOING A CARTWHEEL WITH NO SHOES ON!

Perhaps the USPS should stick to what they know like not delivering the mail, wasting money on unnecessary ads and taking dumps on lawns.

People are stupid--and get bent out of shape too quickly. It amazes me that someone would give a rat's ass about these stamps and make a fuss with the USPS for their removal.

On an unrelated USPS note, at our local post office branch they do a poor job of cleaning the glass on the doors. It's all I can do to not go over there with some Windex and a rag, which I may do some day just for the hell of it.
