Typo on US stamp card shows phone sex number

In what has amounted to a huge embarrassment for the the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, it has been revealed that the card which holds a new “duck stamp” also has the telephone number for a $1.99 sex service on the back.

If you want to go duck hunting, you must buy and carry the duck stamp, otherwise known as the “Migratory Bird Conservation and Hunting Stamp”.  Sales of the stamp raise about $25 million each year to fund wetland habitat acquisition for the national Wildlife Refuge System.

The phone number that was supposed to go on the back is 1-800-STAMP24 (1-800-782-6724) and is for people wanting to buy additional stamps.   But somehow two digits got changed (presumably by accident) and they ended up instead with a phone number with girls promising to get you hot within 60 seconds.

However, the Fish and Wildlife Service has ruled out recalling the cards and printing out new ones because it would cost far too much money.

So expect to see the cards on eBay as collectors items and duck hunters with cellphones wiling away the boring hours waiting for the ducks by making lots of phone calls.

Oh and if you want the “other” number, it’s 1-800-872-6724, (1-800-TRAMP24).   Don’t say I don’t think about you!
