Cancelled postage 100,000,000 years in the making

November 1, 2012

An uncareful reading of the top lines in this ad would lead you to believe that you’d be getting stamps from 100 million years ago. Which would lead you to wonder whether there was really much need for stamps in the Mesozoic Era. Which in turn conjures images of dinosaur mail-carriers delivering letters. Perhaps being chased by velociraptors. EXCELSIOR. (I readily admit, if the postal service ever issued a Devil Dinosaur stamp, I’d slap that bitch on every envelope sent out.)

Note: I scoured the internet searching for an image of a dinosaur in a USPS uniform. No luck. Turns out not everything you can imagine can be found on the web.
