Europe/Other : Sly Humour Reigns in the Poste San Marino!

Someone in San Marino (now there's a country the size of an American city, Antonius!) has a wicked sense of humour. Last year on June 16, they released a couple of issues, the first marking the doubtless widely-observed World Toilet Day. It featured three stamps: "stylized male seated on toilet", the slightly more alarming "two children seated on toilet", and a third which looks like "cartoon insect seated on toilet".

Ideal, I'd say, for the many philatelists with an urge to start a "Toilet" topical collection. Thinking

If the alimentary significance of June 16 unaccountably left us motionless, San Marino made up for it by proclaiming the same day to be World Kiss Day, issuing three more stamps featuring a lantern-jawed unisex face puckering up more in hope than expectation.

I'd hitherto thought the Slovenian stamp featuring a naked woman being rogered by a skeleton to be the oddest stamp ever issued (I won't illustrate that one in deference to your delicate sensibilities), but the quirky Sammarinese may have outdone it. Post your off-the-wall WTF stamps here now!

Do you have pictures of any of these stamps? Not the last one, of course...Blushing

Only those pictured in my stamp magazine, which I dare not scan and post lest I be admonished for breaking copyright rules! Winking

These merry little stamps can be seen at:

Surely someone collects Toilet-themed stamps? Worried

No, but having just thumbed through my newly acquired Cavendish Philatelic Auction catalogue; The Richard C.K.Chan Collection of Hong Kong & the Treaty Ports (Vol. 1), perhaps I should start collecting toilet stamps, or just toilet paper.

Pity there isn't an emoticon with a pistol pointed at its head.

We need some colour in this thread, even if they are crap:

No sign of 'Roger the Slovenian Skelington' though.

Crap is right, but isn't that appropo for where the figures are sitting. Big Grin
The others shown weren't any better either, at least IMHO.

I vaguely remember that this signifies good luck. In Spain they sell figurines of individuals who are crouched down and a small pile under them. San Marino is trying to not be as graphic, I guess.

That's great. My "Poop On Stamps" (virtual) topical collection has grown 4-fold, up to now comprising only this "Keep Denmark Clean" stamp from 1991, Scott #945.
