Quick, how do you spell motorcyle

WASHINGTON (AP) _ The post office is in a pickle over the spelling of motor-sickle.

At least, that's how Arlo Guthrie might explain it.

Problem is, the Postal Service recently, and with great fanfare, issued a new set of stamps depicting motorcycles.

Collectors who buy copies issued the first day the stamps are available can get them with a special commemorative postmark.

Unfortunately, the colorful postmark spells it ``motorcyle.''

Having discovered this, the post office announced Friday that new orders for first-day envelopes will have a corrected postmark.

Unless the buyer wants it spelled wrong. In that case they can still order the version with the incorrect postmark. Just include a note asking for the incorrect version.

Any collectors who already have misspelled versions can trade them for the corrected version by sending them to
