E Pluribus Napkin

I was at the grocery store the other day buying napkins. I picked up a 500 pack of "Everyday Napkins" but I seriously considered shelling out a mere dollar more for the 100 pack of "Patriotic Napkins", which featured blue stars and red stripes.

I mean, what can be more patriotic than wiping your face with your nation's flag?

Apparently my local grocery store isn't patriotic enough for some folks, who would rather shop at stores that deal exclusively in patriotic paper products

Clean up spills with the absorbent powers of democracy and liberty!

Is it worse that a company makes these products, or that Americans actually buy this tripe?

Ironically enough, all dinner plates in my house are made out of 100% pure non-American maple sugar, my table cloth made out of beaver fur, and my closet is full of Mountie uniforms that I like to wear to show my pride.

But no napkins. Never. That's just tacky.

I hate to admit it, but I sleep in Mountie uniform onesies.
