Here's another one, even more flag-like than that one. I can picture the bridesmaid's dresses now: same design, but with Calvin peeing on Osama's head in the trailing fabric.

That makes it even easier to do it for Ol' Glory.

{gasp} You should be ashamed of yourselves for making fun of a woman wanting to clothe herself in Old Glory on her wedding day.

Oh, wait, he said "do it." Uh-huh-huh-huh. :-P

...and here’s a little number from our Flaming Baton line...

In the tradition of Old Glory, here is the more lusty version of "tacky" for those of us playing for the other team...god save the queen.

Stealing from filepile with no shame! (and no credit)

Just awful!

I don't ever go to FilePile, rockhead.

You can almost imagine what the model was thinking: "Must smile...no, can't...too tacky...OK, trying not to look too miserable..."

Stealing from filepile!

Well FilePile got it from someone else too...besides they dont exactly hold exclusive rights to it.

Who gives a shit about Filepile, really. As if being the first person to post a link on the web means anything. The glory is in the creation, not in saying "Me too!"

The flag drags across the ground in some of those garments. Isn't that disrespectful?

My father never raised his hand to any one of his children, except in self-defense.
