Welcome to Buster's Blog

Irregular commentary on whatever's on my mind -- politics, sports, current events, and life in general. After twenty years of writing business and community newsletters, fifteen years of fantasy baseball newsletters, and two years of email "columns", this is, I suppose, the inevitable result: the awful conceit that someone might actually care to read what I have to say. Posts may be added often, rarely, or never again. As always, my mood and motivation are unpredictable.

How To Ruin An Expensive Cooler

Ever heard of the YETI brand of coolers?  They are premium, heavy-duty coolers, with superior insulation and a $300 to $400 price tag.  They claim to keep ice for at least four days and to be "grizzly-proof."  (Very handy if you plan to drink for four straight days in the company of bears.)

Met a North Carolina family down here at the beach.  They had a YETI cooler, and were nice enough people.  But they felt the need to advertise their political wing-nuttiness with numerous bumper stickers slapped all over their over-priced, status-symbol cooler.  To wit:

  • The "Don't Tread on Me" coiled snake (the Revolutionary War flag usurped by Tea Baggers)
  • A Glock pistols decal
  • "LaRue Tactical Weapons" (a custom gun maker in Texas)
  • "I [Heart] Guns"
  • "Extremely Rightwing"
  • "Hillary For Prison 2016"
  • A Confederate flag with the word "Redneck" superimposed on it

Well, yee-friggin'-hah, ya morons!

That's how you screw up a perfectly good $400 cooler.
