image for Microsoft Stamps to be Sold Worldwide
A close-up image of one of the new stamps

Bill Gates is attempting to recieve more money by releasing his all-new range of commercial stamps, called "Microsoft Stamps", worldwide. The new stamps have a variety of images on them, including his own face, the Microsoft Windows logo, and one of the "Ctrl, Alt, Del" keys, plus 30 limited edition holographic stamps with world-famous screensavers that cause instant computer crashes when used with the latest version of Windows on them.

Mr. Gates claims that these will only be sold in special stamp books that cost quadruple the price of a normal stamp book, but they will be sold worldwide, and each book will contain a variety of 9 stamps.

He also claims that special 'Bill Gates Stamp Albums' will be on sale soon, where young scholars can stick in the stamps in an attempt to collect all 600.

Whereupon Mr. Gates had to sign off, saying that the stamps would be on sale in July.

UPDATE - We are very sorry to announce the delay of Mr. Gates' new stamps for an unknown period.

It appears that Mr. Gates was getting too confident, and that he had not yet got legal permission to get the stamps made, and then sell them in stores.

"We're not going to put them on sale for years," said one spokesperson for the President of the stamp company, Stamps, Inc. "Firstly, Stamps, Inc. does not sell stamps intended purely for commercial ventures, and secondly, his intended release date - July this year - clashes with the release of our special new Christmas in July stamps."
