Post Office May Destroy Dangerous Sports Stamps

From Yahoo! News:

USPS may destroy ‘unsafe’ stamps

By Maya Salam | October 10, 2013

Run! Jump! Leap! It all seems pretty innocent, but the U.S. Postal Service is faced with a decision to destroy its series of "Just Move" stamps because of safety concerns, according to Linns Stamp News, and we’re not talking about a paper cut on your tongue.

The colorful cartoon stamps, based on Michelle Obama’s Let’s Move initiative, were intended to encourage an active lifestyle and raise awareness about physical activity. But the images on some of the stamps are not kosher with the President’s Council on Fitness, Sports & Nutrition, according to the stamps designer, Eli Noyes, who told Linns, "Apparently the President’s Council [on Fitness, Sports and Nutrition] and the Let’s Move people saw them and had issues with them."

The stamps in question: a skateboarder sans kneepads, a swimmer doing a cannonball, and a kid doing a headstand without a helmet, and because of these issues, it’s likely you won’t ever get to send your mail with these particular adhesives.

A spokesman at the USPS told Yahoo the stamps are sitting at a printer in upstate New York, awaiting a decision on their fate.

What a terrible dilemma for the Post Office. If they destroy these dangerous stamps it would be a blow against Queen Michelle-Antoinette. Since these stamps are part of a series to promote her ‘Let’s Move’ campaign.

Which means it will probably never happen.

    We didn’t elect Michelle Obama, Tell her to shut up. And it’s not her prerogative to feed at the trough.

    Secondly – OMG

      Michelle is going to create the stamp.

      It was a real heads up on that recent article in the news that ended with a long warning of copyrighting or creating any logo that even resembled her own logo for Drink Water.

      How careless for her not to explain what water to drink or not to drink.

      Obliviously, NJ’s water is making dumb politicians after Hurricane Sandy

      In New Orleans they ignored Scientists and listened to their corrupt Mayor who said he’d rebuild the chocolate city and people are suffering health conditions now.

      She made a news source write a large notice at the end that no one could copy right or use anything close in resemblence give a close version logo of her new “Let’s Drink” logo.

      She didn’t even say what the healthiest water is to drink!

      We don’t want the “something in the water” to be a “national crisis and epidemic”.
      NJ’s water from Sandy is leading to dumb idiots re-running and running for all political positions. I hate to tell Chris Christie this, but everyone can chew gum and walk at the same time.

      New Orleans citizens suffering health problems from Katrina because they didn’t listen to Scientists say this would happen and they needed to rebuild New Orleans elsewhere.
      Oh no. They listened to a corrupt Mayor say we will “rebuild the chocolate city” on top of a sewer.

      Hey, Tony Hawk rode his skateboard on the White House marble floor without a helmet and pads.
      They have a water dog who doesn’t even have a swimming pool, poor thing.
      It would be dangerous to do a head stand with a helmet on.
