Shades of "Fargo"

The part of the movie where the chief's hubby was hoping his duck painting would be on a postage stamp.

It seems that customers calling in to order duck stamps are getting a phone-sex line. This, the AP report (read here, in the Flint Journal) says, is due to a printing error the government said would be too expensive to correct.

It also seems people are reaching 1-800-TRAMP24 instead of 1-800-STAMP24.

The stamps in question are not postage - they're required to hunt migratory waterfowl and cost $15. Which is about how much you might get charged if you listen to 1-800-TRAMP24 for very long.
