Good idea. There are so many of these ads where a company wraps itself in the flag trying to promote itself. Even subtle ads like Chevrolet's nauseating jingle "hot dogs, baseball, apple pie" qualifies. In Australia, GM's subsidiary Holden just changed the words to "meat pies, kangaroos and Holden cars, etc" Why do we fall for this crap?

How do you play "kangaroos"?

Good point! Here's the cringeworthy jingle that was a blatant rip-off of Chevrolet

I wonder how much, if any, of the current Federal cigarette excise tax goes to defense. I know a lot of it is supposed to go to children's health care. So either way, the more you smoke, the better American you are.
