Ten random things: January 30

Ten countries (or autonomous regions) that have issued postage stamps featuring John Lennon:

  1. Burundi
  2. Karelia
  3. Palau
  4. Tajikistan
  5. Belgium
  6. Guinea
  7. Maldives
  8. Tanzania
  9. Antigua and Barbuda
  10. Gagauzia

Karelia is an autonomous Russian republic formed in 1991, located along on the Finnish border. Gagauzia is an autonomous region within Moldova, located along the southern border of Ukraine. Not that I'm telling you anything you didn't already know.

And while they didn't make the list (it's random, you know), these stamps issued by Abkhasia are without question the most awesome stamps ever issued by anyone anywhere. I don't know if Abkhsia has also issued stamps featuring Bozo on a bus, or Hervé Villechaize and a pair of pliers, but I'm looking into it.
