Patriotic Squirrel Sweater!

Never in a million years did I think I’d wear something this crass… I hate the whole “Merica!!” or “Murica” meme/misspelling, most of all when I see/hear people saying it unironically, not realizing that the way in which it is said is to mock blind patriotism without a thought for the actual wellbeing of our country (or just as a bad stereotype… see Urban Dictionary.) But… But… It has a squirrel wearing patriotic glasses… with their lil tongue hanging out all cheeky-like…

So… I’m gonna wear it when we go out to dinner on the 21st… ironically! Well. The rednecky/murica part is ironic on my end. My patriotism isn’t. I’m bursting, dripping with patriotism, but only now do I feel like I have (or will soon have) a proper right to express it. ๐Ÿ˜

I’ve waited so long to say “my country” about the USA… ๐Ÿฅบ๐Ÿ’–๐Ÿค๐Ÿ’™

Anyway yeah. This is dumb. But I’ll wear it because squirrel. And America! With an A, dammit.

I’m sure eventually I’ll stop posting these near identical photos of Kotoko next to me on the desk. Eventually. Probably.

I hung this up by my studio door today. The “proud” is a little hard to read, and sure, it’s a little premature, but hey, give me a break, will you. It’s less than a month away!
