1. A Memorial Day Weekend Message!

    HERE’S a real laff-getter you’ll use to get things started around the ol’ barbecue this weekend while waiting for the coals to heat up and the Zima to take effect.

    It seems last year I was in my local Super Walmart and since I, like you, am quite fond of the good ol’ U.S. of A., I purchased one of these:

    As you can see, I have placed a Toolie Bird on the shirt for scale.

    What better way to say “I love America and Old Glory” than to wear a t-shirt emblazoned with our nation’s flag in the shape of our country? Right? Right?

    But before you agree with me, let’s take a look at the printed label inside the shirt collar.

    All I can say is hold onto your hats for this one, brother!

    If that doesn’t beat the band!

    This patriotic t-shirt was – yes, you read right, folks! – “MADE IN PAKISTAN” – the very country, which at the time of this shirt’s manufacture, was harboring Public Enemy Number One! For all we know, it was Osama himself (or one of his many lovely wives) who made this very shirt. It sickens me! But I will say they did a good job. Tight stitching, no hanging threads, fits snug but not too snug, etc.

    The good folks at Walmart release a similar shirt each year around this time, and this year’s offering wasn’t made in Pakistan, no sir!

    It was made in Nicaragua!

    You can bet your Kate Smith LPs I won’t be buying one!  But mostly because they were $3.80 last year and now they’re $5.50. The hell with that!

    Anyway, grill’s ready.  Get cookin’ there, Guy Fietti.
