Collect all 15!

While at a local Pizza Hut, I spotted a vending machine selling stickers. One of the types of stickers on offer was symbols of the Zodiac. A bright sticker encouraged me to buy as many as I could — “Collect all 15!” Did they have duplicates? Three extra symbols not included in the normal Zodiac? Was the sticker lying?

Of such mysteries is life made. Most people, I am given to understand, do not wonder about things like this. That seems a shame.
