Disco Stu doesn't advertise
Postal clerk: "OK, Mr. Burns. What's your first name?"
Homer: "I ... don't know."
I could keep going with "Simpsons" quotes, but that's the first one that came to me upon discovering that the U.S. Postal Service is issuing five first-class stamps featuring Homer, Marge, Bart, Lisa and Maggie.
The stamps will be available May 7.
According to the AP, the TV show (the longest running prime-time sitcom) was chosen from about 50,000 stamp subject suggestions submitted last year. "Simpsons" creator Matt Groening called it "the biggest and most adhesive honor 'The Simpsons' has ever received."
So while it probably won't impress Comic Book Guy, it looks like stamp collecting just got that much cooler, with an assortment of other "Simpsons"-related collectibles available here.
I'll geek out when I see the Disco Stu stamp.
