The Belgian post office, Bpost, has launched a set of special stamps that smell and taste of chocolate.

More than 500,000 stamps are being printed on special paper imbued with the aroma of cocoa and covered in a varnish to look and smell like chocolate.

The five limited edition stamps celebrate Belgium's renowned chocolatiers and feature chocolate in all its forms.

Chocolate stamps = no mail being sent.  It's a ploy!

Belgians = chocolate stamps
France = cheese stamps
England = Pork roast stamps
America = a whole menu of stamps
India = curry stamps
Uganda = fake stamps

In an ideal World a law would be passed were NO guns were allowed and all those out there destroyed, trouble is the law makers are not going to take a risk of trying to pass that without making sure they are armed first.

Now there's some clever marketing to get people to use snail mail. Next step, perhaps the aroma of chocolate in fountain pen ink, scratch-scented writing paper, and the entire process of letter writing could be revitalized ... not to mention, the consumption of chocolate candies.
