So this one is deeply contradictory. It questions the existence of the idealized America, and then claims you must love it or leave it, decrying the very ambivalence the quotation marks suggest! Thanks, Camille.
I also like the way the plural got added here later, like maybe for a while they sold them one peanut at the time. And, clearly this is about the disputed borders of the "South" this stand must be in Kentucky or West Virginia or Florida or something. Thanks, Liana.
Please send your submissions via email to bethanykeeley (at) gmail.com. I look at them all, but it might take a while to get to yours -- sorry! I love you all, but I only have so much energy in a day.
If you want your picture to make the blog DO NOT @tweet them, or leave them in a comment. I need them all in the same place. Make sure your emails are easily distinguishable from spam or viruses (I use gmail web interface, so images get previews).
I don't usually post the following: newspaper headlines, personal email, craigslist postings, unprofessional websites. I also tend to not crosspost things from other blogs, since I have so much unique material waiting for me to get to it.
Things I see a lot: silica gel "do not eat"; hair dryer labels; inside the bus "do not drill"; Wal-mart sign about IDs; coffee machine with "2" cup sizes; employees must "wash hands"; that failblog post.
