Yes Derek, there was a certain flavour to them. And speeking of flavours, did you check out the ice-cream flavours on offer from the Star Spangled Ice Cream Company? There is: I hate the French Vanilla, Iraqui (sic) Road, Smaller Govern-Mint and Nutty Environmentalist. There is also a link to a page offering future flavours such as: Cowardly German Chocolate, Irrelevant Belgian Chocolate, Dutch (Reagan) Chocolate, Donald Rum Raisin, US Army Tank Crunch, US Navy Battle-Chip and Gun Nut. It is hard to tell if these are just a sick joke or if these memes (ie bigoted, separatist, pro war, anti conservation etc) are being propagated through 'patriotic foods'. Also, are these memes being conflated with patriotic thought? I hope that this isn't a 'taboo subject' too.
