Neo-Nazis have left Germany's Deutsche Post rather red-faced after using its "design-your-own" stamp service - Plusbrief Individuell - to issue a limited edition Rudolf Hess stamp. While Deutsche Post apparently monitors Plusbrief Individuell - which launched in February and promises to deliver pre-franked, personalised …
I have only one thing to say.
I could soon be receiving pictures of dicks, dorks and drugs on my international mail... hope no-one sends anything to manchester museum... (currently covering up mummified genitalia in case of offence).
Is there intelligent life on Earth?
I'm guessing if these are valid stamps they are now hot collectors items.
Sounds like a nice idea...
...for people who want to use this service in good faith. I suppose there's always a risk in a free country that people will abuse their freedoms, but it's a small price to pay.
I hope the irony isn't lost on the neo-nazis.
Best post of the year
Got to ask
Was it airmail?
The flying jacket, ta.
Pfenning Black? Presumably not. Pfennig Aryan, perhaps.
So, did Rudolph Hess like to be licked on his backside then?
The lab coat with the pliers, please.
Ah, those fun loving Nazi pranksters...
...no doubt they think they are real wits. I guess they're half right.
...I wonder if they would accept a photo of "Bomber Harris"
or the St Pauls in the Blitz photo?
they could do it in the States too
... a photo of "that stain" - the presidential seal of approval.
"But those 20 envelopes won't affect German democracy."
But how can we be sure? Perhaps Germany will become a Nazi dictatorship again due to the existence of twenty - a whole twenty, god help us! - Rudolph Hess stamps.
Here we go again.
I foresee hordes of jackbooted philatelists invading Poland to sequester its valuable reserves of 3 zloty commemoratives.
Pfennig Black / Aryan
Surely its Pfennig Schwartz!
RE: Pfennig Black / Aryan
Schwarz to be more accurate still? Nice try though. However, as someone noted earlier, surely Pfennig Weiß would be more suitable. Perhaps even Pfennig Kaukasisch...?
May the schwartz be with you!
What a bloody good idea
I'm off to buy a stack of Alex Salmond stamps right now.
@ Andy Livingstone
What do you want from Mr Samond in return?
Remember, philately will get you nowhere!
You get to keep Pa' Broon.
It's been done better
There were some American artists that pre-upped the Neo-Nazis: check out their work here: http://www.badpressbooks.com/mhdl.html
"I suppose there's always a risk in a free country that people will use their freedoms."
Fixed that typo for you.
That's an image that will probably wake me up screaming, tonight...
@ Daniel Wilkie
I see your schwartz is as big as mine!
If you are going to lick any ones rear .....
Better late than never
THIS KIND OF THING SHOULD BE STAMPED OUT! Sorry but it had to be said.
