Canadian author Margaret Atwood says becoming the face of a new stamp has made her the envy of all of her friends, even though some may be dismayed that she's alive to accept the honour.

Canada Post launched a commemorative stamp celebrating the literary legend at a Toronto event on Thursday, which included speeches by filmmaker Sarah Polley and activist Ceta Ramkhalawansingh.

"Being on a stamp is an unexpected honour, so unexpected that it has already caused a rash of stamp envy in my peer group," Atwood, 82, told the crowd at the Toronto Reference Library. "My lack of deadness is just the latest outrage I have perpetrated on the right thinking Canadian public," she joked. "My country is very good at sticking pins into heads that it deems to have become too swelled up. Be prepared for a bunch of jokes about licking and sticking. Not to mention cancellation."

Nice. If only mofos still used stamps. And I am not being negative I truly believe this should have been done years ago

Love it!
