Passing of a Legend?

I was reading in the paper this morning that Pink Lawn Flamingos are soon to be passing from this mortal plane forever. Union Products of Leominster Mass. made their last Flamingo in June.

It is sad to watch such an icon of American Kitsch melt down.

What is next? Fuzzy dice?

I'm sure some pink flamingos will be available from China...

Do you know why flamingos are pink? From eating shrimp! If they are fed something else (like in a zoo for instance), they will turn white. That's one of my daughter's facts. She's always telling me something new!

Give it two years & they'll go for thousands of pounds each on ebay.
