Canned patriotism

Budweiser has been roundly mocked for this marketing campaign, thus demonstrating that it is possible to lay it on too thick. I keep having flashbacks to the jingoistic days of 2003, when cars were plastered with magnetic flags and “Support our troops” ribbons. (Where’d all that stuff go, anyway?)

      I believe the joke is that they will call it Canada.

        I actually came very close to including an “America Light” gag, but had trouble fitting it in.

          I wouldn’t have wanted you to if it meant sacrificing any of the space devoted to your hilarious depictions of Trump.
