Lick Her? I Don't Even Know Her


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.

I vote Cate Blanchett too although I prefer her in middle class American roles that were not
'award worthy' like
The Gift
and
Bandits

If you lick Nicole Kidman's stamp forehead, does it move?

GladysKravitz said...

And if you crinkle Russell Crowe's stamp a little, does it throw a phone at you?

I bet if there were a Hugh Jackman stamp, it would be sold out in minutes.

That said, I'm sure the Cate Blanchetts will be the first to sell out.

Why does Australia keep chasing Nicole Kidman? The woman does not even live there and has not for years. She might own property there but she doesn't "live" there. Shit, she really doesn't "live" anywhere, including this recent stint in Nash w/ Keith. She's a gypsy, she won't stay put all that long...

And the line about wanting her kids to "live there at certain times of their life" - WTF? is that?

It's actually going to be January 26 - Australia Day not August 26.

What? No love for Geoffrey Rush?

Exactly how old is that photo of Russell Crowe? I think maybe 200 binges and 60 pounds would about do it.

Hey! Leave Russ alone. LOL.

I wanna say "I'd lick him", but that would be going too far.....

I wondered why Hugh Jackman wasn't included, but the people on the stamps are all Oscar winners. Maybe that's the criteria...

And Enty, can you change the dopey photo of Ben Affleck at right? it's time for a change.

geeze, they're pulling nic's face up so high her forehead is 2" longer than it used to be.

Molly said...

yeah, ms snarky, if they used a current pic, it would have called for a horizontal stamp and that wouldn't have fit in with the other three.

what no love for Heath?

oooh, interesting point, jax!

Heath Ledger would have been a much better choice than the fake and plastic Kidman. Heath had so much talent and was actually born in Australia unlike Kidman.

Jasmine said...

your so cute ent. your fav desert when you were 2 was stamp glue?! mine was sand. Hey! that should be a your turn! subject: favorite desert when you were 2 or 3.

Heath has to win the Oscar first. But yeah, if they're going to use Nic, then what about Mel Gibson? I guess they were happy to give him back to the States. Has he done anything since his arrest?
