There’s a Bass Pro shop just across the lake from me, and I like to shop there for clothing, shoes and the like. Well I was in there the other day and thought I would be eaten alive by all the camouflage. I have never seen so much of it in my life.
First there was the rocker recliner. It not only came in camouflage, but in four different shades! Now if you happen to have one of these in your living room please excuse my sarcasm, but who the hell are you hiding from in your house? The wife? The kids?
Next, if you happen to get stuck babysitting during hunting season you can simply take the kiddo along, because Bass Pro sells camo baby bottles and baby clothes to match.
All this got me wondering if there was a house somewhere painted in camouflage, and I soon found the answer when I came across cans of camouflage house paint.
Why they even had camo light switch plates, rope, baby pacifiers, dinnerware for the home, flip flops, “kiss my bass” boxer shorts for the ladies and if you absolutely need to go hunting on Sunday morning you can score a few points by getting your sweetie a pink camo studded cross Bible case!
There was no doubt in my mind that if they sold mens suits there would be more than a few in camo.
And I thought I had seen it all but on my way out of the store I noticed a display of……come on, take a guess?
Does that mean they have camo toilet seats too?
HOWLAND’S GANGSTER TIES
Well the Bubba caught me by surprise with his latest contribution to the Malamute Saloon. I knew he was up on United States history (probably even more so than I) but he is apparently a big fan of the twenties & thirties, and in particular the “gangster” era. His latest story about Dutch Schultz ought to appeal to Big Tony from Bayonne, but I hesitate to bring him into all this. He probably has a few family members involved in the storyline….
