I like the taste of stamps.

Not to go too far off the TP4 deep end here, but goddamn licking stamps and envelopes is awesome. I love that taste. It's too bad the USPS has moved on to stickers so I have to go on eBay and buy vintage stamps to get my fix

I saw this and thought I could relate myself to it... Nah, it is just too weird and dark to lick old stamps instead of a lollypop.

Remember, this is the guy who said:

We have diet pop. Diet pop is water but with flavour and texture and ****. It's perfectly fine for you and doesn't even kill your teeth. And it's 71 cents for a ****ing two liter

I don't even remember the last time I licked a stamp since they're all stickers now. The glue on envelopes is slightly sweet, but I'm always afraid I'll get a papercut on my tongue.
Maybe they're waiting for gasmasks and latex to get sexy again.

The world has become a weird place.

This literally happened to me today; I sent three letters and my tongue has a papercut near the tip. It weirdly doesn't hurt much but I am worried about infection.

Luckily the inside of the mouth heals quite rapidly, so you'll be ok. You can always use some mouth wash or hydrogen peroxide if you're really worried.

I see someone has found some 70s dealer's LSD stash that accidentally ended up in circulation.

Maybe, but I wouldn't trust me to make LSD.

Unfortunately, there is a tipping point. I have a number of old books that I don't even want to touch any more due to skin sensitivities.
