Mike Myers: My Mom Wasn't Impressed With My Canadian Postage Stamp

In an appearance with David Letterman, Mike Myers says he knew his mother was back in form after undergoing hip surgery when she wasn't impressed with his Canadian postage stamp.

Myers thought the stamp featuring the actor and some of his popular characters was an honor, but his mom had more questions than he had answers.

"I knew she was fine when I said 'Hey mom, the Canadian government is issuing a Mike Myers stamp' and my mom says 'Is there anyone else getting a stamp?'"

"I think you might have missed the point. There is no metric. She said 'Well, what's the denomination?' I said 'I don't know'. She goes 'You didn't ask?'"

"I said 20 cents. She said 'That's not very much Michael.' She said 'Is that legal tender? Is it going to be on sale for a long time? It's not some fly-by-night stamp is it?'"

"And then I knew she was really fine... because you know philately is the collecting of stamps. My mom says 'Well, I suppose it is the highest form of philately'. Then I knew she was back."

"I said 'That's really witty' and she goes 'Of course, it is. I'm English.'"

Mike Myers also told stories about his son, Spike, and said he was relieved to discover he was budding comedian.
