No Joke: White House Forces USPS To Destroy Entire Run of Stamps From Mooch’s “Let’s Move!” Campaign Because They Depict Kids Playing Without Helmets, Pads…

You can’t make this stuff up.

Via Postal Mag:

    With the Just Move! stamp issuance the U.S. Postal Service hoped to raise awareness about the importance of physical activity in achieving a healthy lifestyle. However, according to Linns Stamp News, the USPS will be destroying the entire press run after receiving concerns from the President’s Council on Fitness, Sports & Nutrition over alleged “unsafe” acts depicted on three of the stamps (cannonball dive, skateboarding without kneepads and a headstand without a helmet). (There’s also a batter without a batting helmet, a girl balancing on a slippery rock, and a soccer player without kneepads or shin pads.)
