Gag Stamps
  [vote for,

Something to keep the disgruntals occupied... a GAG Stamp. Legitimate stamp reading "PLACE STAMP HERE" .

Now there's an idea.

       Where do you stick the stamps,
vimto, Apr 08 2002

       I understand your concept, it's just worded rather strangely.   

       He means an actual stamp that reads "Place Stamp Here." Stick it where you usually put stamps. Therefore, even though you've placed the stamp on the envelope and it is legally paid for, it will look like you haven't placed a stamp on the envelope.   

       Seems to me it would only serve to piss off postal workers, though... and God knows that they're already grumpy enough.

       There are a lot of people besides post office workers that are disgruntled...   

       Although I notice that is what he means now.

       This idea appeals to my sense of humor. +

       Actually that sounds rather amusing. But, unfortunately, it'd piss us off when they send it back telling us to put a stamp on it.

       Aren't stamp's validity checked by machine?   A scanner or something?   I think that a valid stamp would make it no mater what was printed on it.

       Could be a commemorative stamp honoring Jorge Luis Borges. Or Groucho Marx.

       I'd rather have a stamp that reads: Postage Paid.
If confronted by Postal S.W.A.T. Team, act innocent.
