You gotta love these stories. I just read that people calling a federal phone number to order duck stamps are instead greeted by a phone-sex line, due to a printing error the government says would be too expensive to correct.
It was just a simple case of transposed letters in which the correct number is 1-800-STAMP24, while the incorrect number spells out 1-800-TRAMP24. People calling that second number are welcomed by "Intimate Connections" and enticed by a husky female voice to "talk only to the girls that turn you on," for $1.99 a minute.
This year's stamps, which feature a pair of northern pintail ducks, went on sale July 1 and are good through June 30 of next year. The error will not be corrected until next year's duck stamps.
The stamps are administered by the Fish and Wildlife Service where a spokesperson said that it would cost too much money to reprint the correct information. The agency hasn't received any complaints about the typographical error. I guess not.....they are too busy listening to heavy breathing rather than quacks.
