Sweet and sour... stamps?

Word on the street (or, rather, the farm) is that China is releasing a special stamp in honor of the Year of the Pig. How special, you ask? When you scratch and sniff the front, it smells like sweet and sour pork. But wait, there's more! When you lick the back, it tastes like sweet and sour pork, too.

I am so absolutely intrigued by this and must taste it for myself. In fact, I asked the Anthropologist to ask his good friend who is doing research in China to send some (obviously, unused) over — so I'm hoping to find some in my mailbox in the future.

I love that idea!

I wonder if it's vegetarian - it likely is, but you never know. I'd love to taste one!

Sher - Me, too! I wish they'd do that over here, even though all our stamps are self-adhesive these days.

Mike - I can't imagine what goes into adhesive to give it flavor. Something to look into... I'm hoping to get a sheet (or at least several stamps), so I'll send one in your direction when they come.
