Flags Everywhere #11 – America in a Bag

Flags Everywhere #11 – America in a Bag

The Schwiegermutter’s husband made a comment about becoming sick of hamburgers after our trip to America this August, and I thought, Do Germans really think Americans only eat hamburgers? And then I remembered these chips I saw in Kaufland. The Verlobter helpfully pointed out all the other fast food options – pizza, Taco Bell, Subway, etc. Now the stereotype has been extended to just fast food in general. Unfortunately, we will be in vacation mode during August, so there won’t…

H&M has some patriot underwear for that special man in your life – or for you if you are a man or like boxers. Two different styles to get ready for the fourth of July! And don’t worry, my British friends, they have Union Jacks as well! They also have matching socks, so you can deck yourself out in flags from… waist to toe?

The other day, I was stranded for a few hours because of the train strike, but I thankfully found a Tedi nearby to entertain myself. A clearance rack greeted me upon entrance, and I knew it was going to be a good day when I saw this shirt hanging upon it. I also found some passive-aggressive attempts to keep people away from your luggage at…

New Yorker – Flags Everywhere #7 and Awkward English #5

New Yorker – Flags Everywhere #7 and Awkward English #5

If you want to be entertained, just find a New Yorker store.  This store, presumably targeted to young people, has the most ridiculous clothing.  I can only assume that at their headquarters there is a design board covered entirely with printouts of tumblr posts. Of course I have photo evidence so you can see what I mean. Have you been searching for a super-long, short sleeved hoodie covered in donuts and a cheeky saying? Look no further.  Found one for…
