i dont actively campaign against products. its just when some asks whats a good brand X to get?? i just leave out that brand X even exists.

if their intent was to mock bhussein thats not what it looks like to me.

I do believe it is intended to be satirical. Not my cup of tea, but I'll continue to buy other stuff from them from time to time.

I finally had to go look at it on their sight and still scratching my head.

I think Dog got it right, if this was meant to be satirical, they missed.

I think they were pretty successful. Although I wouldn't buy one.

I'm surprised they don't offer one with "Zombie" something or other on it.

How about a lower that instead of SAFE and FIRE had NO and OH HELL YEAH ? Or maybe 3 positions- SAFE, ROCK and ROLL ?

I think it is a great sales ploy.
Lots of free advertisement for PSA.
