    I’ve been struggling with stamp removal from the envelopes ever since USPS came up with an idea of self adhesive stamps with devil of a backing imported from hell. Thanks to Phila-Mirror (Feb 08, 15) , one can now eat home made potato chips, bacon or corn on the cob before, after or in between doing this removal chore. And in the end can squeaky clean the mess caused inside the microwave oven too. Speaking of the devil, it is indeed quite fitting to select the forever first class USPS ‘Batman’ stamp for this microwave demonstration. I’m impressed!
