After they unveiled the artwork yesterday, the Post Office announced a promotion to allow people to vote for their favorite. Today I voted for my favorite Simpsons stamp.
- Out of the approximately 50,000 suggestions for stamp subjects the U.S. Postal Service receives each year, about 20 are selected to become postage.
- The Simpsons, which is the longest-running comedy in television history, is the only television show to be featured as the subject of a stamp set while it's still in prime time production.
- Bart Simpson is a philatelist (stamp collector). His stamp collection is stolen in episode 92 (Homer The Vigilante), which was first aired in 1994.
