ATLANTA (AJC.COM) -- It's tough being a kid. It's even tougher learning to be tough with namby pamby adults running things.
The United States Postal Service, which is only $4 billion in the red this year, will destroy a series of stamps that depict youngsters doing 'unsafe' things, according to multiple reports.
The "Just Move" collection of stamps were intended to promote the government's "Let's Move" campaign advocating physical fitness, a cause championed by first lady Michelle Obama.
But three of the 15 colorful stamps allegedly show behavior the White House deems unacceptable - skateboarding without knee pads, doing a 'cannonball' into a pool, and performing a handstand without a helmet.
You know what's really unsafe? Hitting a baseball without eyeballs or swimming without a nose like the poor children on these stamps.
PostalNews.com, a website that usually can cure insomnia, reports the "unsafe depictions came to light after USPS Marketing chief Nagisa Manabe asked Michelle Obama to take part in a first day ceremony for the stamps."
PostalNews says the "entire press run" will be destroyed, but other sites, such as The Daily Caller, suggest the stamps are perhaps not yet printed. I've not seen an estimate of what it cost to produce the stamps.
