If you still use snail mail, you can now send a letter declaring your support for vegetarianism, thanks to PETA. On Tuesday the animal rights organization launched a limited edition line of stamps featuring 20 famous vegetarians.

You can go classic with Tolstoy or Pythagoras, sexy with Pamela Anderson, or stupid with Steve-O – so there are plenty of ways to shout it loud and proud that you are into a meat-free diet (and annoy your meat-loving mail carrier).

It was back in September that the U.S. Postal Service announced that living people can now be featured on stamps. The Postmaster General explained: "This change will enable us to pay tribute to individuals for their achievements while they are still alive to enjoy the honor." OK, but while the $0.44 price is right for Bob Barker, do Steve-O or Morrissey really deserve to be on stamps simply because they abstain from eating animals?

Check out a couple of photos from the launch event outside the Hollywood Post Office.
