Now that everyone is probably done scraping their election stickers off their bumper, a new website hopes to tap into the market by offering a wide range of patriotic ribbons with humorous and subversive messages on them. For about $7 (large), you can choose from their wide selection, which includes lovely slogans such as: “More Patriotic Than You,” “My Ribbon Is Bigger Than Yours,” and of course “I Temporarily Support The Troops.” Or, you can make your own slogan for a buck more.
Because I couldn’t think of any funny (I know, shocking), I decided to hold a contest. You leave suggestions in the comments and I’ll send the funniest submission a large ribbon with their slogan emblazoned on it (make sure to note which style you want). Contest ends Saturday 11:59PM PST, winner announced sometime on Sunday. This freebie is courtesy of the huge infusion of cash (double digits even) from our newest sponsor/advertiser:.
UPDATE: Another guy is selling the AntiMagnet ($5 to $7). Apparently, it does not fall off your car as advertised, because it is actually magnetic, but it does have a great slogan. From the FAQ comes this funny nugget:
Mostly everyone in this country supports the troops and hopes they will return safely. Maybe you should be telling them directly in person, on the phone or in a letter and not driving around with a big magnetic banner you probably got at Wal*Mart that simply attempts to prove to everybody but the troops that you support the troops more than everybody else.
