According to Drovers, back in September, the U.S. Postal Service announced that living people would now be eligible to be featured on stamps. The Postmaster General said, “This change will enable us to pay tribute to individuals for their achievements while they are still alive to enjoy the honor.”
So PETA (People of the Ethical Treatment of Animals), got on the ball – or the propaganda – the announced this week that they will host a limited edition line of postage stamps featuring 20 famous vegetarians. The media event to kick-off their campaign, was held in Hollywood, outside the post office of the stars, and Anderson was on hand for photo ops with 88-year-old Bob Barker.
Along with Anderson and Barker, the stamps also feature some long-dead vegetarians such as Pythagoras, Mohandas Gandhi, Leo Tolstoy and Leonardo da Vinci. Some very-much-alive promoters of vegetarianism included in the group are Paul McCartney, Woody Harrelson, Ellen De Generes, Joan Jett and a comedian named Steve-O.
So as you’re getting ready to send out Christmas cards this year, turn your preference to the fun Holiday Stamps instead of the veggie ones.
