bpost, the postal service of Belgium, will put stamps featuring New Super Mario Bros. Wii on sale beginning Monday. Looks like it offers Mario with three different powerups, plus Yoshi. A sheet is €4,99. [via Polygonal Lawn, thanks Philip]
ugh... it's a newly privatized postal service, it's no longer a public service. They closed fucktons of post offices in order to keep only 1 per commune (with some ridiculous situations like Ottignies/Louvain-la-Neuve, two towns, one commune, post office is in Ottignies, but it's most needed in Louvain-la-Neuve due to tons of international students at LLN's university relying on the Post Bank's services, which aren't available in mailboxes and convenience store service points). They're driving their staff nuts with unrealistic routing schedules.
It's a mess, it's slower, it's more expensive, it offers less options, but hey, they can focus on catering to businesses now and make more money, instead of being the useful and functional service the average citizen needs...
Fuck their Mario stamps, really. They should fix the mess they made.
