Tea stains

As a symbol of World Nut Daily‘s diehard commitment to improving its bottom line (“Don’t Tread On My Revenue Stream!”), for the low low price of $73.50, they’ll sell you a tea-stained flag:

Now imagine the furious, choking, sputtering, panting, wheezing, purple-faced, vein-popping, spittle-flecked outrage that would have ensued from the very same World Nut Daily not long ago if “The Left” had purposely stained flags, say, in opposition to the Iraq War.

    Methinks Chuck Norris has taken one too many of his own roundhouse kicks to the head…

    Are they sure it’s stained with tea then? Because watering trees has to be an idiom for something else.
    Mixing and matching their metaphors could be an entertaining pastime, were it not for the worries of angry right-wingers going postal.

    Flag desecration alert! This is right up there with wearing the flag on their fannies!

    Wish I would have thought of that. What a brilliant scheme.

    Lightbulb!

    So, would it be really wrong to suggest putting together a group of clever and creative sorts to start churning out faux fanatical patriotic doodads and hawking them to the nitwi… conservatives? Why not empty the pockets of the ideological opposites to finance our vacatio… nefarious plans. bwahahahaaaa!

    Psa: Of course not, it’s the American Way!

    And if they complain, we can scream ‘COMMUNISTS!’ to their faces.

    psa,

    it’d be like the relic business in the middle ages.

    i can get you reagan’s thigh bone for a cool 2 million. a metatarsal goes for 3-8 k, depending on the size and which foot it comes from.

    i know a barber who has a line on glenn beck’s hair and janitor who can get you rush limbaugh’s used kleenexes.

    there’s real profit potential here…

    psa 😆

    Creativity bomb incoming! What a great idea!

    ETA – Okay you guys, let’s start making some money.

    On a different note that is tangential yet related, rev. paperboy has an interesting link at his blogsite, reminiscing about critical remarks made about a US president by a different kind of woman … while on furrin’ soil.

    Oh yeah. Shrieeek.

    deBeaux – As always excellent work from Driftglass. Yet another post I’m sitting here saying “Goddammit! I wish I wrote that!”

  12. 12 Jasper Thursday, September 24, 2009 at 9:30 pm

    JJ,

    thanks for the link to WND. Look what I found out:

    Carl Sunstein (Obama’s regulatory czar): Fetuses ‘use’ women,
    abortion limits ‘troublesome’…

    sicko.

  13. 13 JJ Thursday, September 24, 2009 at 9:32 pm

    Jasper – You just found that out? zzzzzzzzz

  14. 14 Lex Friday, September 25, 2009 at 5:16 am

    I read the ad, though, and I think that the flag uses antiqued cotton, whose color is supposed to RESEMBLE tea stains. So is it desecration if it’s not actual descretation but only looks like it’s desecreation?

    I’m confused ….

  15. 15 hemmingforddogblog Friday, September 25, 2009 at 5:36 am

    And how do they “antique” it Lex? Tea, maybe? hahahaha

    It’s probably made in China anyways!

  16. 16 Bina Friday, September 25, 2009 at 5:54 am

    Gasper, what’s your fucking problem?

  17. 17 Rev.paperboy Friday, September 25, 2009 at 7:48 am

    JJ- when it comes to drifty, we all say “damn, I wish I had written that” at least once a week. He’s enough to make one give up blogging – ’cause you read his stuff and figure, “why bother, its all been said and better than I would have said it”
    thank the FSM he’s on our side

  18. 18 JJ Friday, September 25, 2009 at 7:58 am

    Lex – Isn’t it still desecration if it’s supposed to look like desecration? Or maybe it’s not desecration if the staining is done to the material before it’s turned into a flag? Oh, my head… 😯

    But my point still stands about the ferocious rage that would have blasted off the pages of World Nut Daily if lefties had done this…

  19. 19 JJ Friday, September 25, 2009 at 8:00 am

    SQ –

    It’s probably made in China anyways!

    Nah, righties wouldn’t buy any made-in-China product because China has that one-child policy — buying products made in China is tantamount to financing forced abortion.

  20. 20 JJ Friday, September 25, 2009 at 8:04 am

    Rev.

    when it comes to drifty, we all say “damn, I wish I had written that” at least once a week

    Seriously. He’s one of the few bloggers that can make you disappointed when the post ends.

  21. 21 JJ Friday, September 25, 2009 at 8:05 am

    Bina – Jasper doesn’t have a problem, he is the problem.

    I wonder what he’d think if he knew that Canada has NO abortion law? 😆

    “When a flag becomes shredded, damaged, stained or faded, it is acceptable to properly mend or clean the flag to restore it. The U.S. Flag code states that when a flag is in such condition that, it is “no longer a fitting emblem for display, it should be destroyed in a dignified way, preferable by burning.”

    Actually, they don’t care about that so much as they care about gettting their cheaply made crap from Wal-Mart, which arrives at their rock-bottom prices by IMPORTING FROM CHINA! 😆 It’s kind of like Suzie-All-Caps’ latest adventure in doublethink. Just in an economic sense.

  24. 24 Frank Frink Friday, September 25, 2009 at 4:50 pm

    Ah, JAB beat me to the Wal-Mart reference. Well done.


Wait. What?
