My friend, who works for a small custom rubber stamp-making company, is ordering me a rubber stamp that says TRAMP. What other lulzy stamps could he make?

A high school friend of mine had a professor father who really wanted to get a HORSESHIT stamp to use when grading papers. He probably could've got that stamp easily enough, but using it would've had consequences he didn't want to deal with.
