Long Live the Pink Flamingo

To paraphrase Mark Twain,  rumors of the death of pink flamingos are greatly exaggerated.

The so-kitschy-that-they're-cool pink flamingos will now be made by Pink Inc. (Morton Grove, Ill), picking up where Union Products left off since the latter when into bankruptcy.  Pink plans to make the products here in the states, which makes sense as I can't imagine that there would be much cost savings in shipping the blow molded products around the world.  Besides, to the best of my knowledge, the flamingos are pure Americana.  (Don't really think that Osama bin Laden has them set up outside his cave.)  I just imagine approaching the Chinese to make these, watching them trying not to double over in laughter during the discussions.

When I was ten or eleven years old, my father rented this film for me. When I tried to tell my buddies about it at school, they believed book trailer video I was joking. "Such a film did not exist! No one will be permitted to attend!!" The film and the novel "Blood in the House of Death." Everyone assumed I was fabricating information about them.
