Wow! The USPS should have put one letter on a stamp - Twenty times First Class to make a dent in their red ink!

Why hide the message in 'techo-art', just write the message in cursive and most kids would be stumped. Even Old English or Wedding Text from the lead type setting days printed in all caps could cause a "solve it" quiz today.

yeah, it's not a code, just a bad font.

At this point they might as well have lottery scratch stamps where you could win a microwave or free gas for a year.

Since vaccinations are free to all anyway, what would be the point? Although anything that gets people to get one is a good thing.

The "hidden" message on this stamp suggests to me that it should fold up to become a truck or a robot.

As one who has taught cryptography in the past, this is just lame. I suppose they have to make it easy so people can feel good about themselves and their purchase... Are they desperate for sales or running out or crap for stamp subjects?
As was mentioned before, this is just a terrible font. I like the cursive suggestion.

The best that can be said about it is that it's colorful. But I suspect that a fair number of non collectors who like modern art will like it.
