A CYNICAL LOOK AT THE DAILY GRIND

SEALED WITH A KISS


Hershey's Kisses got the U.S. Postal Service's stamp of approval for its 100th birthday.


Now all you Kiss-lovers have the 39-cent variety that tastes like glue.

Joining the gotta-have-one epidemic, Kentucky Fried Chicken also petitioned the USPS for its own stamp to commemorate KFC founder Harlem Sanders, who died in 1980 at age 90.

I wonder what they'll put on it ... the Colonel's mug? a bucket of chicken parts? or how about the so-called fried rat that made KFC famous?


Guess the company wants to make its mark before snail mail goes kaput, as if more than a billion "finger lickin' good" chicken dinners sold in 80 countries around the world every year aren't enough.

How does the post office deal with conterfit stamps? I might just make one of my butt on a copy machine and send anonymous letters to my "friends".
