Every now and then the cancels applied to stamps create an unusual juxtaposition --somehow seeming to affect the content of the stamps they land on. I used to trade with a fellow who collected these and who had a clever name for them. Wish I could remember what it was.
Here's one of my favorites from the stamps I have. Anybody else want to show us unusual juxtapositons you may have?

Moon Drug Company of Nashville, Tennessee, USA was a CPU (Contract Postal Unit, which is a store that offers post office services.)

Their cancel fits this USA Express Mail stamp quite well.

The stamp's paper thickness leaves the woman's hair incompletely printed on the cancel. But, something lost is something gained. Now she is wearing a maid's headdress.
