    USPS to destroy Just Move stamps over safety concerns

    Linns Stamp News reports that the US Postal Service will destroy the entire press run of a stamp series aimed at getting children to be more active.

    According to Linns reporter Bill McAllister, three of the stamps in the fifteen stamp series raised safety concerns among sports figures on the Presidents Council on Fitness, Sports & Nutrition. The stamps in question depicted children performing a cannonball dive, skateboarding without kneepads, and doing a headstand without a helmet.

    The unsafe depictions came to light after USPS Marketing chief Nagisa Manabe asked Michelle Obama to take part in a first day ceremony for the stamps. That was apparently the first time the stamps had been reviewed by the Sports Council.

    Skateboarding without knee pads? Really?

    Holy fucking shit. I said it in another thread and it bears repeating...Americans are pussies.

    David Lee Roth did the impossible. He made Van Halen better. Deal with it!

    A half second of thought and you realize being sedentary your whole life kills and hurts more people than skateboards.

    And what level of self-aborption is required to think that the specitic details of your tiny piece of art work control the destinies of the nation's children?

    it is pretty stupid that these stamps were never vetted by the agency that was sponsoring the issue

    and we wonder why the post office cant make money


    I hear the running with scissors stamp was the first one recalled

    survivor of the Bowling Green Massacre 9-3-2016 BGSU 10 OSU 77

    She was warned. She was given an explanation. Nevertheless, she persisted.

    We need to insure that any USPS stamps celebrating "Teen Sexual Freedom" show condom use, or they'll end up destroying those stamps as well.
