The upside to these stamps is that they taste better than the average FLOTUS-approved school lunch, but that’s not going to be enough to save those who created them from, well, themselves:

The U.S. Postal Service tabled its first lady Michelle Obama-inspired physical activity stamp series due to safety concerns, a Postal Service spokesman confirmed to The Daily Caller Thursday.

“The stamps are on hold with the printer and we have not made a decision at this point, right now, with respect to how we are going to move forward,” the USPS spokesman told TheDC. Some of the illustrations on some of the stamps in the series, the spokesman explained, feature activities that some might not consider safe — like doing a cannonball into a swimming pool.

The “Just Move” stamp series was initially conceived to “support” and “promote” the first lady’s anti-childhood obesity Let’s Move campaign, the spokesman said.

Other highly “dangerous activities” depicted on the stamps included a child doing a handstand without a helmet, a skateboarder without knee pads, and Joe Biden giving a kid shotgun lessons.

The “stamps of death” are included in the mix here, minus the Joe Biden one:
