Don’t just be patriotic. Be patriotic-er.

Boy, if I hadn’t noticed the socks, I’d be hard pressed to tell these two apart…
If not for the socks, I’d be hard pressed to tell them apart…
I *know* that this is not a childhood picture of Steph and Arley (it would violate laws of physics and time travel), but I did a triple-take when I saw it.
the white socks look so out of place
Kid Sister! Kid Sister! Kid Siiiister and meeee!
I think they look like the sweetest girls and they look so proud and happy to be wearing something they think is “cool”.
I might point out that professional writers and editors have very little regard for amateur “grammar police.” These childish copy-editor wannabes often make mistakes in their own postings, as in this case, and much of the time have no idea what they’re talking about. Even when a “grammar police” commenter is correct, to point out errors in others’ grammar, spelling, or usage unasked is incredibly rude.
Do these silly people imagine that anyone will read their comments and think, “Wow, what a clever, literate individual”? All anyone sensible thinks is “Wow, this person has no manners at all.”
You just wrote exactly what I was thinking!!!
Perhaps both girls agreed to wear a flag shirt OR shorts that day, forgot which one was assigned to them, and decided to wear both just in case. The girl on the right has just realized how flawed this plan was.
I don’t care how you spell it…does that really matter? God Bless America! and God Bless these two beautiful young ladies for being proud of their country.
I think the big blue shirt pockets save these outfits from being a total fashion disaster. But then I’ve been known to wear plaid with houndstooth, so what do I know?
The girl on the right is like “Ha ha, Mom likes me best – I got the hat and socks too!”
nailed it !
The flag pants are on backwards… THAT’S A DISTRESS SIGNAL, SEND HELP!!!
That’s right, send the Teenage Fashion Police, the only kind of fake police who should appear on this thread.
Someone’s mom got a sewing machine for Christmas!
And it took her six months to make these?
Really! Grammar police and capitalization police comments on this site? Geez, major buzz kill! Way to take all the laughs out of this hilarious photo!!!
Makes me wonder how many years of therapy they had to endure afterwards.
The grammar police academy should be appalled that this one slipped through the cracks!
Relax everyone and enjoy the day like the kids in the picture are doing.
I guess the proper use of capitalization is not taught in “grammar school”. But, hey those outfits are pretty hideous!
There’s something very Tweedle Dee & Tweedle Dum about this pic. Poor kids.
I’d be afraid someone would run me up the flagpole.
But maybe someone would salute!
I feel underdressed.
What the hell?!? – they couldn’t find TWO pairs of red-white-and-blue socks?
Oh no, they had 2 pairs, but the girl on left thought it would be “too much.”
Having known both of these ladies for 20+ years I feel like some unfortunate picture of me may be next!!! Heather, you totally made my Independence Day! Haha
Ha ha ha ha! Win!!
I read that the flag was deliberately designed with a combo of shapes and colors you wouldn’t normally put on clothes.
who knew there was that much flag material at the house of fabrics…
The girl on the left resembles one of my college roommates! Are these kids from New York?
Oh my…those poor, unfortunate girls! Hopefully they were allowed to change after the picture was taken! Bless their patriotic hearts!
Looks like their was enough fabric left over to make socks. Barely.
its THERE not their. get off the computer and go back to preschool.
While I agree that there, their and they’re should be used correctly, you are rude, and need to go back to manners school.
Nice and friendly there!
You need to get off the computer, too. Your response should have read, “It’s THERE, not their. Get off the computer and go back to pre-school.”
It’s “it’s.” You also forgot to capitalize. Check yourself before you wreck yourself.
Your not very nice!
hahaha Awesome! ;D
The kids in my class have barely mastered the difference between “he” and “she”, “there” and “their” is a bit advanced for preschool.
Oh, and your “its” should read “It’s”, as in “It is”. ;o)
Thank you, grammar police!
It’s IT’S not its, you moron. Also your ‘get’ should be capitalized! hahaha Get off the computer and go back to the womb! ;D
Get off of the computer and get some manners, idiot.
Hey, Grammer Police, you forgot the comma AND the apostrophe! Your comment should read “It’s THERE, not their.” Not to mention you didn’t use capital letters to start either of your sentences. You’re fired.
It’s *It’s*, not its…
correcting someone’s grammar “may” be okay, but being rude isn’t. There is a nice way to let some one know of an mistake.
Wow, was that necessary? Seriously?
And it is “it’s” not “its”. People who live in glass houses …
How about the use of “your”. It should be “you’re” as in you are.
Any of you know what “Strunk and White” refers to?
Pretty bad when the so called “grammar police” need an English lesson isn’t? You don’t have many friends do you?
Grammar Police should learn grammar first, THEN correct others.
Wow Jeff, looks like a major FAIL here. I think it is unaminous you had better get off the computer. I hear sand is a good place to bury your head in this time of year.
I meant the “grammar police strikes again”, not you.
