A Tchotke for Everything

I got a Magnetic Poetry Kit as a Secret Santa gift once.   I put the words on my office door and the bored kids in the office were always trying to come up with the dirtiest poems the words would allow.    

Yesterday, I saw “I Love My Union Thug” mugs online.   I guess we’re meant to think buying one is support of the Wisconsin workers but they are sold by an private company selling I Heart [fill in the blank] everything and a bunch of St. Patrick’s paraphernalia.    There’s always money to be made off the latest trend, trainwreck or tragedy.    …Although, I must admit I would have traded my poetry kit for the Charlie Sheen Edition if I could.
