Ay, Carumba! Simpsons Stamps Cost USPS $1.2 Million

Filed under: TV NewsOops!Business Blitz

D’oh!

The United States Postal Service took a huge gamble when they manufactured ONE BILLION special Simpsons stamps.

They were trying to mimic the success they had back in the 90's when they did the same thing, but with Elvis Presley's image.

Surprisingly, the stamps were a huge success! Oh, wait…

…Sorry we forgot to add a word. The stamps were NOT a huge success. In fact - they were basically a total failure as they only sold 318 million of 'em.

Here's what one report said:

"We found the Postal Service overproduced 2 billion commemorative and special issue stamps during calendar years 2009 and 2010, resulting in…unnecessary manufacturing costs for stamps that were later destroyed."

Listen, we love the Simpsons as much as anyone, but we're not going to go out our way to buy their stamps.

Get a grip, dude.

Don't even act like you are surprised. There's a freakin' royal wedding refrigerator, for crying out loud!

Have a letter you want to class up? Look no further than these newly released stamps featuring Prince William and Kate Middleton, the royal couple on everyone's radar.

The stamps will be released on April 21st, the Queens Birthday actually, and will feature the pair's most famous portraits by Mario Testino - their engagement portrait and their less formal shot in the Palace's Cornwall Room.

No doubt they look good together, which is a good thing, since we can't escape looking at them! They're everywhere!!!!
