Air America Gear

There's nothing new about selling merchandise to promote your organization, even for broadcasters. FNC's 'The O'Reilly Factor' has its "Factor Gear," for example, including mugs, umbrellas, T-shirts. This may be a first, however. From the liberal 'Air America' radio show, heard on eleven! stations nationwide, the "Classic Thong." From the product notes: "This product is designed to fit juniors. [i.e. girls, not women] It fits snug, [you don't say!] sizes run small." Well they did say "classic" and not "classy."

You just can't make this stuff up. Job security for Leno, Letterman, etc.

Cafeshops will put anything on a thong. There were Kucinich and Dean thongs early this year.
No Bush thong yet.
Though, that might be confusing.

Maybe a "Berkeley Square" thong when the new CD comes out...

Yikes, quick mental picture of JK and bandmates hurling thongs into the adoring crowd....

So, can thongs generate as many comments as gay marriage or Iraq? I was just reading about the "scandalous" addition of Spider Man movie advertisements to the bases at several major league parks, which of course made me think of thongs. What exactly is the point of mass advertising that few people can see?

I'd like to establish Berkeley Square Blog as THE place on the Internet where thoughtful people of all political persuasions can discuss smutty underpants...
