"Give me Liberty, or give me… Whatever!"

The U.S. Postal Service has unveiled its new Statue of Liberty stamp. There’s just one problem with the photograph-based stamp: it doesn’t depict the actual statue in New York’s harbor, but rather the half-sized, idealized version of the statue that’s in front of the “New York-New York” hotel and casino in Las Vegas.

A spokesman said the stamps won’t be recalled. “We still love the stamp design and would have selected this photograph anyway,” Roy Betts said, even though postal officials “regret the error” and are “re-examining our processes to prevent this situation from happening in the future.”

MGM Resorts International has latched on to the controversy. “Everyone thought the post office was honoring just one great American institution,” said spokesman Gordon Absher, “when in reality they were honoring two: the Statue of Liberty and Las Vegas.”

A THOUGHT: One in a place where the American dream was shattered by the Mob, bad luck and “the house” draining everyone of all of their savings, while the other is a gambling town in Nevada 😉

Chase Morgan is just your average, ordinary All-American writer. Chase began writing several years ago, but never published anything until the "Are You Friggen' Kidding Me?" blog launched in August of 2009. Chase simply got tired of standing around and just observing all of the craziness in the world, so this anxious writer sat down and wrote the first "Are YOu Friggen' Kidding Me?" article on August 19th, 2009. Now, any time something makes Chase say, "Are You Friggen' Kidding Me?", the issue get's transformed into an article. Chase is currently single, homeless and living under a bridge in South Florida.
