First Australia let Paris Hilton and Brandon Davis exit their country and return to the United States without any kind of mystery disappearance and now the want their citizens to lick Nicole Kidman. I know, I know. I think I just threw up a little in my mouth. It turns out that the Australian Government has decided to honor Nicole Kidman and three other Australian actors by giving them their very own stamps. Yes, beginning August 26th anyone who wants to lick Nicole Kidman can pay 55 Australian cents and lick her likeness and put it on an envelope.
When Nicole was informed of the honor she told the Sydney Morning Herald, “I have a vested interest in Australia. I want my children to live here at certain times of their life and see how wonderful it is. It would be lovely for them to lick a stamp, put it on an envelope and say ‘that’s my mum’.”
It will also be interesting to see which celebrity sells the best and which are just thrown in the trash where the little children can find it and say, "that's my mum."
The other actors being honored are Cate Blanchett (dibs on those), Russell Crowe and Geoffrey Rush. What would make this really interesting is if the Australian Post Office scented each stamp with how each of the actor's actually taste. No? OK. Do people even lick stamps anymore. I thought they all had that stuff that just made them stick without getting that nasty stamp taste in your mouth. It is hard to believe that the glue I find so nasty now was my favorite dessert when I was 3.
