Remember the Justified Ancients of Mu Mu? The KLF? Intellectual property hacker and musical impresario Jimmy Cauty is up to his old tricks again; this time his chosen targets are UK stamps bearing the likeness of the Queen. His "Stamps of Mass Destruction" are causing quite the stir, with the Royal Mail threatening to sue the Artrepublic Gallery in Brighton for displaying the naughty works.

From Reuters UK: "Cauty and fellow KLF member Bill Drummond are best known for burning one million pounds of their own money in a ceremony on a remote Scottish island in 1994. They have never explained why they did it."

Bloody fools. Oh well...a burning pile of pound notes makes for better press than dumping a ton of Euro coins down the loo.
