News, but not the serious kind
The place with the mostage postage is…
Blog Guy, can you please settle a bet with my dermatologist’s sommelier?
Really? On a summer weekend I’m still settling bets for unlikely professionals?
Pay the man. He’s right. Look at this photo above, showing a roll of Syrian first class postage stamps with President Bashar al-Assad’s face on them.
But wait a minute. How do I KNOW those are really postage stamps?
Look at the stamp on the postcard this little girl is holding up on the right. It’s canceled and everything.
Hmmm. I don’t know. If that’s really an address in Syria on that postcard, what does it say? Do you even KNOW any addresses in Syria?
Yes. It says, “On the Road to Damascus.”
I’ll be damned, even I’ve heard of that one. When you’re right, you’re right, Blog Guy!
