Do you know if they have a store with gag gifts? I've been looking for a pile of fresh poop that's colored Red White & Blue.

Don't know. Haven't explored the site in detail. I KNOW that they have patriotic diapers and feminine hygeine products :)

No way! Register me for the Udderly American Breast Pump!

Actually, this site would be a good place for The Tick to shop, especially with the Hammer of Justice, and Coffeemaker of Victory. Damn, i wish they'd bring that cartoon back.

Ooh, just read their disclaimer:
Expect delivery within 6-12 months. Sizes and colors may vary. Please, only one Confeddy Freddy per trailer. We reserve the right to refuse service to brown people and/or non-Christians. Products not suitable for the satire impaired or humor deficient.

Good site.

Nobody commented on the "Tampons of Glory." Huh. I would have expected to hear something about that from this group.

The sad thing is, the Little Patriots diapers (on the "Crapsale" link) are REAL :)

Ugh!

That's cuz they're not really patriotic: Red and white, but not blue.

Yes, but this site does not. This one is done in humor. Check out the disclaimer at the bottom of the page:

"Patriotism is more a matter of community than a matter of how many and how high we wave our flags..."

Blue is a color typically associated with cleanliness....

Think about it ... would you want to see tampons dipped into viscous red liquid in a commercial? What about yellow liquid and brown chunks poured into adult diapers? Ewwww ...

I'm waiting for the inevitable "Americans are so conservative and sensitive about bodily functions" reponse. Tell me that Swedish tampon commercials use Karo syrup, and that German adult diaper commercials use lager and chunky stew ...

For any idiot that thinks that the webmaster of that site is anti patriotic.. should really think of it well (hmm I doubt that the idiots can think at all :p)

What's more patriotic, buying tons of worthless junk with the US flag atached and patriotic colors or mocking and fighting against the corporations that are selling fake patriotism through these products, they're degrading the flag and making it just another product, plus patriotism isn't material, something many should learn, patriotism goes in your head not on what you wear or have.

Thank you :D

OMG LOL!!!

They use blue for toilet bowl cleaner too. Maybe someone can find a way to make the color... oh, never mind. :)

There once was a day where it was illegal to use the image of the US flag in a commercial or offensive manner. Alas, what would Old Navy do without their best selling t-shirt. I wonder what political group got that old law removed from the books? Was it the evil republicans? Hum.....I wonder....?

My 3 year old daughter LOVES the American flag. We never pushed the idea on her but ever since last 4th of July she's been obessed with the flag. She has a little American flag pocketbook and stickers etc. I don't know why it makes her so happy but its damn cute.

I'll actually agree with El Guapo here.

Just like I disagree with people who go to church in flip flops, tee shirts, and shorts (these are adults we are talking about).

I couldn't agree more. I visited a new church yesterday and half the congregation was in sweats, the other half in tee-shirts. I'm not formal but geeez, at least make an effort.
