What do John Lennon, Queen Elizabeth, and George Bernard Shaw all have in common?
To celebrate the advancements of the decade, Anglonerd magazine proposes the World Stamp Show be re-branded as the Universe Stamp Show to allow stamp-collectors from other galaxies come and trade stamps. I bet a Zygon is very good at licking-and-sticking with all those suction cup things. And imagine winning the bid for a stamp with enough postage to get a postcard to Raxacoricofallapatorius!
All right, well until the committee accepts my re-branding suggestion, World Stamp Show will be held May 28 through June 4, 2016, at the Javits Center in New York City. It is free and open to the public. The exhibition will include John Lennon’s childhood stamp album and the British Guiana One-Cent Black on Magenta stamp (considered the world’s most valuable object by weight, having been sold for 9.5 million dollars two years ago). Stamps will also be for sale from 200 of the world’s most notable and respected stamp dealers. And auctions. And seminars. Don’t wait! This event only happens once every ten years. The Doctor regenerates more often than this show comes around!
