I am a Star, You’re a Star


It’s true.


They made a stamp for me.  That makes me a star.

OK, maybe not quite. But when I read this little item about stamp designs in the New York Times, I couldn’t resist having a little fun with the images.

The United States Postal Service…announced Monday that it was tossing out its rule that its stamps honor only dead individuals and will be opening up this postage-stamp-size billboard space to the living, as well.

And why not you? I’m a star. You’re a star. We are all wonderful miracles that defy the norms of the universe.  So why shouldn’t we all have a stamp designed in our honor?

We live! We think! We feel! We believe! We love!  See how great we are.

We are stars, indeed.


  1. This sounds a lot like “I’m special and unique, just like you are.” How can we ALL “defy the norms”?

  2. What a hilarious post, it reminds of that Saturday night live skit where the comedian looks in the mirror and says, “I’m good enough, I’m smart enough, and gosh darn, people like me.” I heard about this story as well, but I don’t think it will save the post office… email is so much more cost-effective than a 44 cent stamp.
