U.S. Postal Service to make stamps with living celebrities on them: Who would you like to lick the most?

On Monday, the U.S. Postal Service announced that, for the first time ever, they will make commemorative stamps that feature living celebrities on them. Typically, the standard rule is that you have to be dead at least five years to get the prestigious honor of being licked and sent to exotic locations like… Milwaukee, but in an attempt to boost sales and interests (stamp collecting is cool, you guys), the U.S. Postal Service is now open to suggestions on Facebook and Twitter for which living stars should be put on a stamp. Their only stipulation? That the star has “made enduring contributions to the United States of America.” Ah, so close Kim Kardashian!

Since we love any opportunity to honor our favorite celebrities and decide which of them we’d like to lick without getting in serious trouble (we’ve been putting some thought into that for quite a long time), we came up with some of our own suggestions (Jon Hamm, Betty White, Robert Pattinson, Tina Fey, Bruce Springsteen, to name a few.) We also wanted to see who you think should be sitting pretty on the right hand corner of your envelopes. Check out our dream stamp gallery and vote in our poll below!

Which of our celebrity stamp choices do you like the best, PopWatchers? The least? Are you salivating at the idea of a Lady Gaga meat dress stamp or are you already adding an Oprah stamp to your list of favorite things? Or do you have some other suggestions? Would a Derek Jeter stamp be a home run or would you write letters simply to have the excuse to use your George R.R. Martin stamp? Is it high time for a Kevin Costner stamp commemorating the cinematic classic The Postman? What about a Ben Gibbard stamp to honor all of his years with The Postal Service? Or should we just call it a day and make them nothing but treasured national figures such as Tom Hanks, Sandra Bullock, Muhammad Ali, Jane Gooddall, Morgan Freeman, and the entire cast of Friday Night Lights?
