Get Yer Al Flowers Merchendise Right Here!

Contributed Image

A blog reader posted this (parody) image to their Facebook profile, and forwarded me a copy. I'm away on a long trucking trip, and today I will make it to Waveland, Mississippi on the Gulf of Mexico for (I hope) a Saturday and Sunday layover. I'll be thinking of y'all back in Minnesota while looking for somebody to sell me a pina colada ON THE BEACH. Yeah, baby.

(Wait, did I just say "Yeah, baby?" OK, just because I said it doesn't mean it's a good name for a sports bar, no matter how you spell it) 

Anyway, I'm glad that while I'm away "The Hawkman" has been keeping readers informed and entertained with North Minneapolis events and adventures. But a have a moment, and momentary internet access from a cheap hotel in Meridian, Mississippi. So I thought it would be great to post this image first thing in the morning.

And if you just fill the baggie with tobacco or sage, just tell everyone how easy it is to mistake it for pot, threaten to conduct full cavity searches, and presto! It's a Morris Klock costume.

I just saw the infomercial for this costume on TV.

As an added bonus, if you order in the next 24 hours, the costume comes with easy to read "how to" instructions for filing a frivolous lawsuit.

For the record...the image is funny, but my use of the image should not be construed as evidence of any positive opinion of the individual who created the image. In fact, I have to admit...

In retrospect, f I'd known where it came from, I wouldn't have used it. But it's already up there, so it stays.
