Majick Thise: what's a stamp?


Pretty much this. A friend and I were just joking that we might actually have to mail something to someone now. I honestly can't remember the last time I used a stamp.

They're collectible antiques that were once used to ship things called "letters" via the US Postal Service.

These "letters"...are they some kind of app?

Over the years my use of the postal service kind of tapered off like everyone else. I have however now discovered that people still really enjoy getting something in the mail other than bills and advertisements. I started mailing cards, thank you notes, that sort of thing again. I've received a lot of really positive feedback for just that little bit of effort.

Johnny Cash was a dittybopper.

It must be decades since the last time the US Postal Service saw black.

No, I like the Willie Nelson stamp also.

Excellent headline, submitter. You have distilled the essence of every Johnny Cash thread into one sentence.

In other news, apparently the USPS still exists! What teh f**k's up with that???
 
2013-01-30 09:25:37 AM  
I bet it's better than the Trent Reznor stamp.

And it shouldn't have to... the US Postal Service is a necessary function of government, not a neighborhood pub.

I finally make the leap to paying all my bills online so the coil of stamps I have will probably last me until I die.

They should have used this photo of The Man.

Apparently many of you "what's a stamp" people don't sent holiday cards anymore. Question: Do you send everyone e-cards, or do you just not send anything?

Anymore? I'm over 40, never sent one.

Think e-mail, only with less spam.

/Except for ValPak, of course.

The USPS only has twenty-five minutes to go.

Cash isn't exactly breathing himself, anymore.

Do people still send letters for fun? I only use mine for stuff that needs a verified signature/hard copy, and I don't really think that trying to be whimsical at my employer, landlord, and utilities provider would really mean much.
 
2013-01-30 10:44:59 AM  
I heard that they will release a Lady Gaga stamp, which is convenient, you can spit on either side . . .

I thought I was the only one farked up enough to have that thought IMMEDIATELY.

That happens with every old picture of animals. People, not so much.

I would have thought most people were still sending occasional cards to elderly relatives, but maybe Farkers aren't big on that sort of thing.

Not at my post office.  You never saw a slower moving bunch in your life.  It's not racist if it's true.

I Walk the Line Revisited by Rodney Crowell is an awesome song.

Why are most basketball players black if they are so slow?

USPS is a government agency. They are required to see black.

Maybe the Post Office only employs those who couldn't make the NBA cut? Although why a 5'-6" 300 lb. 55 year old woman would try out for the NBA is beyond me.

I've seen 5'-6" 300 lb. 55 year old women of other races and they all moved slow.

If I recall, that famous Johnny Cash flipping the bird picture was used for an ad "thanking" the country industry for it's lack of support. So liking Cash and still hating country overall still makes complete sense.
