Re: Aga and Maria debut on Guinea Bissau post stamps

Why Maria? surely Vika is a better more relevant option?

NOBODY WANTS TO HAVE VIKA'S FACE ON THEIR BRAND. Nike's about it, but Nike's designs for her are clearly the most inferior.

Re: Aga and Maria debut on Guinea Bissau post stamps

Exactly what kind of serve is Maria hitting in that stamp?

A single flow'r he sent me, since we met./All tenderly his messenger he chose;
Deep-hearted, pure, with scented dew still wet - One perfect rose.
I knew the language of the floweret;/'My fragile leaves,' it said, 'his heart enclose.'
Love long has taken for his amulet/One perfect rose.
Why is it no one ever sent me yet/One perfect limousine, do you suppose?
Ah no, it's always just my luck to get/One perfect rose.

Some countries are just more generous than others and have no hangup honoring accomplished people, regardless of the country or race they are from.


In more countries than not, decision like this has to go through Parliament for approval by their representatives.
Nationalists in Parliament will generally object to such move if the people to be honored by stamp are not from their country.

Pretty sure that's at RG 2009 where she was just coming back from her shoulder injury.
