A Scratch-and-Sniff Pig Stamp?

Mr. Sidetable sent me an article by Peter Leo from the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette that attempted to verify whether the Chinese government had actually released a scratch-and-sniff stamp to celebrate the Year of the Pig. As rumors on the interweb have it, the stamp to the left supposedly smells like sweet-and-sour pork when you scratch it. As the article points out, many nations have released stamps that smell in the past, but there is no verification of the odor, if any, of this stamp just yet. I'll let you know if I hear (I mean smell) something on this front. It's a story that certainly sounds too good to be true...
