I'm new here and I didn't see a "Stamps in the fake news" section, so I hope this is alright to post here. It's from The Onion (a mock-newspaper) and gave me a chuckle:

Good Cop, Avid-Stamp-Collector Cop Routine Not Working

April 3, 2008 | Issue 44•14

LOS ANGELES—An ongoing interrogation at the Los Angeles Police Department's downtown precinct has not been as successful as hoped, despite the fact that officers are employing the "tried and true" good cop, avid-stamp-collector cop routine, sources reported. "That's one tough in there," Detective Mark Jacobson said of the suspect, who has already endured five hours of the classic psychological ploy in which Jacobson acts as a sympathetic confidant while his partner talks aggressively about stamps and stamp-collecting. "[Detective David] Linklater's in there right now giving that slimeball a good look at a rare original-print Dag Hammarskjöld invert. We'll break him." According to LAPD records, the Jacobson and Linklater duo has been among the precinct's most effective, creating more than 2,000 new philatelists and boasting nearly six arrests.

The APS would think it's working!

Haven't gone to The Onion in maybe a couple of years. Loved the unforgettable Point/Counterpoint Travel bit they between the young American woman and the Italian man she met in Rome.

I guess I just don't know anything anymore. I suppose I should do something other than work and look at fishing and stamp collecting sites on my computer!
