what was unusual was that the English and French statements on those tags didn't quite match — while both versions included the usual admonitions not to use bleach, not to machine dry, and not to iron the bags, the French-language version included an extra phrase: "NOUS SOMMES DESOLES QUE NOTRE PRESIDENT SOIT UN IDIOT. NOUS N'AVONS PAS VOTE POUR LUI." Roughly translated, this statement reads in English as: "We're sorry our president is an idiot. We didn't vote for him."

They are cowards for not putting it in English, IMO.

I like how people take it as a universal message to the idiocacy of some presidents. Thats so awesome, I hope this trend takes on with other industries and companies. People never wanted to get involved in politics, including myself, but politics never seemed to be involved in many people's lives until recently.

Geez people, only one reply??

Jamuhn, I think politics is always taken more seriously during a time of war. People werent worried about it until members of their families began to get shipped to Iraq and sent in the front lines with a 70 percent chance of death.

Quote from Mr. Bihn himself:


"People out there think a number of presidents are idiots," said Mr. Bihn. "It's a universal message."


and if they had a bigger
I'd use that too.

I hereby demand that everyone on ATS change their signatures to include the above comment. Sheer bloody genius.
