Recall of ‘faulty’ stamp cancelled.

Image: The faulty stamp in question.

This is one of those emails that somehow gets spread around. I have heard this one before under different circumstances but it is too good to resist.

Australia Post recently created and marketed a new stamp displaying a picture of the current Prime Minister of Australia, Ms Gillard. 

It was decided however that a recall of the stamps was necessary following complaints from the public that they were faulty and not adhering. 

After the Prime Minister was informed that the stamp was not sticking to envelopes after a long and expensive production run and being released with wide publicity, she demanded a full investigation.

It has now been revealed that the recall has been suspended after the findings of a special Senate Committee were released.

After months of testing in the CSIRO laboratories and spending of $1.85 million, a special Senate investigative inquiry by the leader of the Greens, Bob Brown, the following findings have been presented: 

1) The stamp is in perfect order. 

2) There is nothing wrong with the adhesive. 

3) People are spitting on the wrong side of the stamp.


  1. Stamps should honor DEAD politicians.

  2. and they do, don't they?
