Let's Move! (But not too fast)

Michelle Obama wants you to exercise, but the President's Council on Fitness, Sports, & Nutrition has told the US Postal Service to destroy an entire run of "Just Move!" postage stamps, because the physical activities they depict are too fun.

From Postal Mag:

With the Just Move! stamp issuance the U.S. Postal Service hoped to raise awareness about the importance of physical activity in achieving a healthy lifestyle. However, according to Linns Stamp News, the USPS will be destroying the entire press run after receiving concerns from the President’s Council on Fitness, Sports & Nutrition over alleged “unsafe” acts depicted on three of the stamps (cannonball dive, skateboarding without kneepads and a headstand without a helmet). (There’s also a batter without a batting helmet, a girl balancing on a slippery rock, and a soccer player without kneepads or shin pads.)
