Well, that was certainly a close call.

The U.S. Postal Service tabled its first lady Michelle Obama-inspired physical activity stamp series due to safety concerns, a Postal Service spokesman confirmed to The Daily Caller Thursday. …

According to a report from Linn’s Stamp News, however, two White House entities — the President’s Council on Fitness Sports and Nutrition and the Let’s Move campaign — raised concerns about three of the 15 the stamps in the series, due to the potentially unsafe depictions on them.

A Postal Service source told Linn’s that USPS was confronted with the objections when it sought out first lady Michelle Obama’s participation in the roll-out ceremony for the series, which was supposed to take place in May. …

There are some conflicting reports over whether the stamps have already been destroyed or if the USPS has yet to make a final decision over the series’ fate, but they must have pictured some pretty gnarly or offensive pictures to warrant such attention, right?
