This is from The Associated Press, which reported that The Simpsons will appear on a series of U.S. postage stamps. I am as big a Simpsons supporter as there is, but even I have to wonder how far the USPS’ bar will dip in terms of who’s honored on stamps. It will surely sell stamps, though, and that’s what the USPS needs in a time when mail may no longer be delivered six days per week and the entire system is threatening to crumble under massive debt.
Don’t have a cow, man! The Simpsons will appear on postage stamps.
America’s most enduring — or is that endearing? — dysfunctional family will be honored on their own stamps, the Postal Service announced.
It’s been 20 years since Homer, Marge and family invaded the airwaves on Fox television, and the Postal Service says it plans five stamps featuring the couple and their offspring, Bart, Lisa and Maggie.
No word on their dog, Santa’s Little Helper. And it seems that even — or is that evil? — Mr. Burns was not able to pull enough strings to get his own stamp.
Artwork for the 44-cent stamps was done by Simpsons creator Matt Groening and will be available for preview April 9 at usps.com. At that time the post office plans to announce the date the stamps will go on sale.
