  • Egyptian Postal Service in Suez Canal Stamp Cock-Up

    Plans from the Egyptian government to build a 'new Suez Canal' have already suffered setbacks just a few months after being announced by demigod Sisi,  but this week, the $2.4 billion project was plunged into ridicule.

    In trying to ignite what has been a rather lukewarm reaction to the expensive construction, the Egyptian government, naturally, chose the inspirational medium of stamps to light fires under bums. The problem, however, is that in true Egyptian copy-paste style, the stamp features part of what is irrefutably the Panama Canal.

    We all love a good 'facepalm' moment, but this is just ludicrous.
