    hope the did not try to burn it

  2. Lee says:

    I’ve heard of ‘wrapping yourself in the flag’ but this is ridiculous.

  3. Robert says:

    “Excuse me, um… which way to the Tea Bagger parade?”

  4. Jeighlynn says:

    When a simple T-Shirt just isn’t enough.

  5. Sarah says:

    I’m from this small town – I’d recognize those fairgrounds anywhere! Loved seeing the four person flag in the parade again this year!

  6. softgeek says:

    I love small towns and their parades – always short and sweet. Then we can disband and get to the carnival and food booths and beer garden.

  7. LollyBlue says:

    looks like fun, but it’s just a little ‘much’

  8. RugbySkin says:

    They were all glad they took that Belly Dancing class together at the Y. This year, the flag can wave!

  9. Shawn says:

    Take one guess as to whose idea this was!

  10. Jak says:

    If ya want to be technical, using the flag as apperal is ilegal.

  11. Stephanie says:

    They should have walked in the parade with it,and had no pants on,just for fun.

  12. Angie says:

    the TRUE awkwardness is that the two on the right are really reversed, and no one noticed…

  13. Timmer says:

    So where’s Waldo?

  14. anne says:

    This is the image shown in the dictionary next to the definition of “good sport.”

  15. SmartUK says:

    Unless the US has been on a major yet covert expansionist spree, I’m counting what looks like 6 rows of 9 stars and 7 rows of 5 stars – if one star is for each State of the Union that makes 89 states…

    Thanks, whoever called me a “young woman!” Yes, we walked in a small town parade last year (09). In fact, four people from my church have been recruited every year since someone found this get up (yes, we’re tied together) to wear it in the parade and walk in front of the church’s float (decorated flatbed trailer). Last year it was my turn, along with 3 other people. I’ll probably do it tomorrow, too!

    What I REALLY wanna know: do these stripes make me look fat?!

    • Brian says:

      The white stripes bring out your smile! 😉

    • Some Girl says:

      I knew it! I could tell this was some kind of parade get-up. I think it’s cute, but the guys reactions are too funny. Has the younger one been called Napoleon much?

    • Cathy says:

      When I was in college in the late 70’s four dorm friends and I wore a costume just like this — only we made it out of a sheet and colored markers. Then when we turned around, we’d written on the back “Are we not men? We are DEVO!”

      I’m sure it was a lot funnier back then.

  17. CookieMonster says:

    Lol they did this in that 70s show. This ones funnier cause the two dude look like were duped.

  18. dingleberry says:

    What if one of them has to pee?

  19. Laura says:

    This reminds me of the episode of ‘That 70’s Show’ when Donna’s parents made her wear a jumpsuit that was stars and her parents were the stripes.

  20. blueeyedme says:

    Is it just me, or they’re not just standing next to one another — they’re tied together.

  21. They should have worn shots and sleeveless shirts to look like the falg was the only thing they were wearing.

  22. Shaylen says:

    Well, it’s not an actual flag… notice that it has 98 stars (that I can count)

  23. jitterbug says:

    I bet they wore this in a parade. hahaha!

  24. Paul Garfield says:

    Guess whose idea it was

  25. Valerie says:

    I’m with comment #1–Pollyanna’s version was much cuter!

  26. Ginny says:

    Not attractive. And isn’t it illegal, at least disrespectful to cut up the flag???

  27. Andrew says:

    Looks like Napolean Dynomaite there

  28. Bigue says:

    Hm.. They would as well hold an actual flag… Or are they starting a line of patriotic aprons?

  29. DrStrangelove says:

    Grammar fail… s/b “Even partiotism has ITS limits.” Possessive form of “it” has no apostrophe.

  30. wendyvee says:

    This appears to be the young woman’s (2nd from the right) idea. Everyone else looks perplexed and/or annoyed 😉

  31. Harry says:

    Dad and son have that “this can’t be happening” look on their faces!

  32. wombat girl says:

    Polyanna wore it better
