Who would you put on a stamp? Charlie Sheen? Lady Gaga? Yourself?
Hoping to boost sagging revenue, the U.S. Postal Service on Monday abandoned its longstanding rule that stamps cannot feature people who are still alive and is asking the public for suggestions.

Oh, wait... she’s dead...
I say put a picture of a prostitute on the stamp....it will cost 46 cents at the post office, but if you want to lick it, it will cost 20 bucks.
Or Ted Kennedy with the swim trunks and packer helmet, anyone have that pic?
OK, that got a LOL!
Since when do we put Canadians on US Stamps?
I think President Obama would like a Je...Janitor on the stamp.
I think even the most far left liberals know deep down inside that by the time he is gone, there will be no one who would consider him to be on a stamp. And all the schools that were named for him will all have been quietly renamed as well by the time of his death.
Thomas Sowell for sure. Stephen Hawking, amazing man that ticks me off, but I can’t deny how amazing he is. Bah! It is too late for Dr. Michael Elias DeBakey.
Do they need to be Americans? If not, maybe Margaret Thatcher, Daniel Hannan (sorry, just LOVE that speech of his)
You'd have to roundhouse-kick it onto the envelope.
The Most Interesting Man in the World, even if the letter has insufficient postage, it would still get there.
Jesus? He is alive afterall.
Of course it will be Obama and the USPS is right, they will probably sell a bunch of them. They would be smart to release a General Swartzkoff stamp or someone on the other side at the same time.
They should have a stamp series of teenage girls taking cellphone camera Facebook profile shots of themselves. We can bury them in time capsules so future civilizations will have an idea of what went wrong with ours.
Obviously it’s about Zer0 - with him, it always is.
LOL. If we did, I’d say Mark Steyn, the modern equivalent of Thomas Paine. ;-P
