Have you ever heard of using a wet sponge on a dish?

Sometimes the stamp companies use insect poop or ground up chicken feet for the adhesive on stamps.

You can get envelopes that are mint flavoured. Much nicer to lick.

OMG, didn't you know the glue contains all kinds of nasty stuff like roach eggs. Here's a true story for you to read


If you lick your envelopes... you won't anymore!!! A woman
was working in a post office in California. One day she licked the
envelopes and postage stamps instead of using a sponge. That very
day the lady cut her tongue on the envelope. A week later, she
noticed an abnormal swelling of her tongue. She went to the doctor,
but they found nothing wrong. Her tongue was not sore or
anything. A couple of days later, her tongue started to
swell more, and it began to get so sore, that she could not eat.
She went back to the hospital, and demanded something be done. The
doctor took an x-ray of her tongue and noticed a lump. He prepared her
for minor surgery. When the doctor cut her tongue open, a live
cockroach crawled out!!!! There were roach eggs on the seal of the
envelope. The egg was able to hatch inside of her tongue, because
of her saliva. It was warm and moist... This is a true story reported
on CNN.

I once licked my brains out. And when I woke up, she was gone and there was a crisp $ 50 bill on the nightstand.
