"Designed with the nosy/bored postal worker in mind"

Send your partner a postcard, senders choice, that has a ridiculous and obvious huge fib (lie, tall tale, whopper) written on it -- make sure it would make the postal carrier read it twice. (Of course, we never KNOW for sure if they EVER read our mail, lol)

Use your sense of humor BUT if you are easily offended, please don't join this swap, as you never know what someone may write.

Please check partners profile so make sure you don't say something that may really offend.

Hope we get lots of members to join -- have fun!

Updated: August 10 by host: If you get a card and it has something on it you "know" to be untrue, it should be rated a 5.

The point of this swap is to have fun, don't worry about the intensity or the layers of the lie, the size of handwriting, etc. This will be clarified on any further swaps of this nature!

HERE'S SOME TRUE INFO from the PENPEX & Sequoia Stamp Club about Scott 403 -- The USA stamp shown above is one of the 1913 commemorative Panama-Pacific Expo stamp series --

"... it is the 5-cent stamp showing the “Golden Gate” – the entry way to the San Francisco Bay. The 3rd stamp in this series was part of a set to commemorate both the discovery of the Pacific Ocean in 1513 and the opening of the Panama Canal in 1914. It was also to promote the Panama-Pacific Exposition that would take place in 1915. The 5-cent “Golden Gate” stamp was an appropriate symbol of all of these events.

The 5-cent stamp is a beautiful dark blue, bearing the design of L.C. Schofield. The Golden Gate Bridge is not seen in the stamp, of course, because construction didn’t start on the bridge until 1933. A five-cent stamp at the time would have paid for international first class mail [current June 2013 rate = $1.10]. Statistics show that 29 million stamps were printed of this issue.

The Golden Gate is the North American strait that connects San Francisco Bay to the Pacific Ocean."
