New Patch: 'Hutus & Tutsis Roll"

Happy Julyteenth, Everybody (This means nothing by the way)

First, let's get the obvious out of the way, this patch is in no way affiliated with Too tsie Rolls Industries. I picked up a few tactics on tricking those algorithms from Yanne during our last candy bar patch hiatus. (For those of you just joining us, we pulled a similar stunt with our "Fuckers" Patch.)  We've thought all this through. See, if you're going to dabble in parody law, might as well do it with a large chocolate corporation. At least they'll probably have free candy bars in the board room while you wait to meet with the legal team. 

Speaking of legal teams, so Felicien Kabuga is fucked, huh? The asshole accused of funding the Rwanda Genocide was finally caught and thrown in "The Hague" (This is not breaking news). That name sounds like either a map from Call of Duty or an absolutely terrifying prison in a foreign country. For his sake, I hope it's the latter. He pleaded not guilty for his crimes against humanity, even though he was in hiding for 26 years. Sounds like they must have needed all the time they could get to get everyone's stories straight. But I'll save that for the prosecution team.

Signing off.

An Incomplete History of the "Thin Line" Origins

by Jimmy Bowman | October 01, 2015 | 0 Comments

We are currently selling two "Thin Line" designs, on various products.  There's the "Thin Blue Line" and "Thin Red Line". These represent Law Enforcement and Firefighters, respectively. The "thin lines" are the small part of the population that separate normal civilians from the general fuckery that is caused by criminals and/or fires. We wanted to give a big high-five to these groups, so that's why the "Thin Blue Line" and "Thin Red Line" Valhalla Admit One patches exist (as well as some stickers and lapel pins).

This all started with the "Thin Blue Line", in the UK. It quickly jumped the pond and was rapidly accepted by North America. Of course, you can't rep the Police for protecting people without also giving proper credit to the Firefighters of Earth that pull you out of burning buildings (not an easy thing to do). It only makes sense that the "Thin Red Line" concept was created. This also reaches over to the EMS crowd with the "Thin White Line".  We currently don't have any "Thin White Line" products....but it could happen.

These morale patches are an awesome way to show your support for those that quite literally put themselves in harms way for a living in order to keep you and the rest of your community safe. If they didn't, then you'd be enjoying the luxurious lifestyle that Somalians have the pleasure of living.

Slap one of these (or both...don't play favorites) on your kit, your truck, or anything else that has Velcro attached to it...and show that you not only understand, but appreciate not having to worry about a lot of the bad shit that happens to unprotected people around the world.
