I had this ridiculous exchange on Twitter this week:
Australia Post on Twitter

"Most of my heroes don't appear on no stamps" is a line from the Public Enemy song "Fight the Power" from 1989. Which is around the time I started getting into PE. It's also referenced in the title track from their most recent album "Most of My Heroes Still Don't Appear on No Stamps". Which I recommend - after 25 or more years they can still bring the noise.

The poor chap who runs the Australia Post twitter Account sent me to read their Stamp Issue Policy, saying "they may not meet our stamp policy guidelines"! And also suggested their Personalised Stamp service... Maybe I could make a stamp with a picture of Chuck D and Flavor Flav on it.

I suggested they watch this:

And that was the end of the exchange!

As a footnote, it seems more of their heroes are finally appearing on stamps:
