So... new stamps?

Postby Kelshandra » Thu Jan 16, 2020 09:26 pm

I'm not impatient, you're impatient.

It's now well into the Year of the Condescending Carp and I was just wondering if a new LBE was on the horizon *whistles innocently* :mrgreen:

He also has to check for misprints and colour differences, ensuring each sheet is the salmon the others.

Ordered- now to wait two weeks patie... patio... *sigh*. Fact of the day- European carp are a pest species here and are found in both natural bodies of water and irrigation chanels. People are not fond of them as they don't taste very nice but if you catch them when fishing (very very likely) you are not allowed by law to throw them back due to their pest status.

Wow! I did not know that European carp were so harmful in Australia! :shock:
In France, carp can be appreciated for food (in the oven stuffed with vegetables for example, or fried), except the old ones (which taste like mud). But we can fish them for sport - fishing nokill-. Fishing a very large carp is very difficult, and then we can put them back in the water. I am not a fisherman, but I know many.

Spoiler Alert - Don't read this if you don't want to know about the 2020 SPORT for theTOA

C'mon, Really ? Have I got to be the first to mention the Poisson in the room?
A missed opportunity ?
Doesn't the word condescending suggest anything ?
After the levitating lobster and suicidal skunk weren't we all hoping the Tower of Art would have a somewhat fishy theme ?
No birds ? Surely we could have had one of the birds carrying away a fish ?
Or some flying fish instead of the birds ?
or a fish leaping out of the water ?
or if the water is that of the river Ankh and fish need an alternative means of transport to swimming aren't we all thinking of
bicycles ?
