Flag Clothing Deemed 'Not to Code'



In response to our sister blog Lola's Loves' post Stars and Stripes, many readers questioned the ethical use of patriotic clothing.  Having reviewed Federal Law regarding Flag Etiquette, it has been noted at Lola's Loves that:
 "The flag should not be used as part of a costume or athletic uniform, except that a flag patch may be used on the uniform of military personnel, fireman, policeman and members of patriotic organizations."
Outraged, our esteemed reader Soubriquet responds:
 Does that mean all these young ladies are acting treasonably? How shocking. I've a good mind to demand they take off their flag-themed clothing, and burn it with due reverence, whilst saluting !!
We at the sunday news whole-heartedly endorse Soubriquet's demand and expect, in the near future, Soubriquet's flag wearing hitch hiker to also follow suit.  We want photographic proof ...

 Agony Anne's Advice Column

Dear Agony Anne,

Each night when I go to bed with Frank, my husband of 15 years, I look forward to, umm.... stimulating discourse.  In the early years of our marriage, Frank was quite the stimulator and always found inventive and erudite ways to umm .... stimulate me.  Lately, however, when Frank goes to bed, he falls asleep immediately.  Instead of lively and ummm .... stimulating discourse, I lie in bed awake and longing for the Frank of yore instead of the Frank who snores.  What can I do to save our marriage?

Signed,
Sleepless and Stifled

Dear Sleepless and Stifled,



Yours truly, Anne

Does an Action Man comic count as a good book?

Flag clothing? Depends on the flag.

Sleepless and stifled, Lose weight, stop nagging, think about him for a change.

Cosmo ~ are the pictures any good ??

Adullamite ~ succinct as always! I forget you footballer types wear flags all the time! You're missing the point about mrs. sleepless - she just needs to choose a better bed partner ....Apparently the chikkin suits don't quite appeal to mr. Chikkin Restless ....he claims I've gone loopy on him.

Can't win them all, can we boys??

She is cracked. Or addled. Or scrambled.

No self-respecting chikkin would wear stuff like that, surely. What about the glorious feather suit?
