Back in December, I pointed out the sheer ridiculousness of marketing items as Duck Dynasty-sponsored products, especially when the commodity in question has nothing whatsoever to do with these bearded redneck fakes and the kind of lifestyle they're trying to portray. There may be some products, such as t-shirts and bandanas, that might make sense as DD-related. For example, it wouldn't surprise me if the DD guys decided to lend their pusses to Clivan Bundy-raised beef or perhaps the next Ted Nugent album (or has this guy given up music for other types of hysterical noise?). But can the same really be said for computer mouse pads?
Folders for school kids?
And -- for crying out loud! -- peanut butter cups?
When I see crap like this in the store, I just want to weep uncontrollably for the state of our popular culture. That, and feel an irresistible urge to take a piss.
