The Japanese government, with the help of bad people in America, want to take away your right to own and enjoy guns. They tell people that America should be more like Japan, where the people can’t own guns. They don’t tell people that in Japan, people can be held in prison without food or water until they confess to crimes they didn’t commit.
-Brasco the Bear, 1998

How fun!

If you act now, you can still get Brasco the Bear T-shirts featuring the rifle-toting cartoon bear with the all-caps legend "SOME LAWS ARE BAD." Ash grey "golf" shirt, Adult small only. I just ordered 5.

That Brasco shirt is so insanely awesome. Half Winnie the Pooh, half Teddy Roosevelt, 100% ready to defend the right of Americans to own firearms. Hopefully they will replenish their stock in time for oral arguments in District of Columbia v. Heller.

Yes, yes, bear arms, I know. I got it. Brasco the Bear.

Excuse me for a moment. I'm going to go grab a glass of milk and whip up a batch of Goody Guns* so I can have a snack while I do my coloring.

Goddamnit! This Large Adult wants a Brasco the Bear t-shirt! That has to be the most awesome shirt I've seen in months.

Do your part to save our kids – if you don’t, the American dream will die, and your children and mine will be slaves.

This was 1998. Are we there yet?

Re: the Black Panther Coloring Book, it's proported to be an FBI COINTEL propaganda piece.

Hilarious, though.

My dad brought the kid an NSA Cryptokids coloring book after his visit to a gift shop in an undisclosed location.

Also, an NSA teddy bear we call Spy Bear, as in "See? He's spying on you right now, honey."

M is for Mathowie. Mathowie is one of the worst dictators on the Internet. If you interfere with the operations of Metafilter, he will have you and your family killed in your sleep.

Every night after dinner, he drinks a pint of baby seal blood from the skull of a kitten.

If you believe the things Mathowie tells you, you will never know the fun of <>.

From the makers of Brasco the Bear comes Freedom Music TM! In particular, "Blues Thang" (mp3, pops) makes me want a gun.

Aww. It looked all right in preview, but I guess trying to type "img" between the "<>" with a space on either side of the word doesn't work.

Great post. I love the way the researcher helps both the puppy and the "sick mice" get better. No dead lab rats to color!

Fortunately, Al Gore was defeated in 2000, so no not yet.

I love it when ludicrous partisan fools make Al Gore jokes. Next time you should follow it up with a Kennedy joke, or maybe one of those fantastic Lewinsky laughers.

Dammit, the Brasco t-shirts appear to be sold out. (At least, they no longer appear on the site.)

Oh and, previously on Metafilter....

The Federal Court coloring book looks like a pamphlet right out of The Simpsons.

RRRRGH, the Metafilter effect: Did you guys corner the market on Brasco Tees? "Proud to be a High Caliber Couple" just doesn't cut the mustard this holiday.

My computar is somehow unable to load these new-fangled PDF files. Darn.

I'm just going to have to assume that these are as awesome as the L&O coloring book. Though that's hard to imagine as it's one of the awesomest things since sliced awesome.

You forgot the "TM" notification after Brasco. There's something cute about a pretend 11-year old trademarking the name of his bear.

Don't want to be casting aspersions on the post, but these PDF's could use a bit of compressing. 4Mb is a bit large for what they contain.

We have gun control in Australia, and let me tell you. You're for ever tripping over concentration camps, gulags and killing fields.

Fact, you can't HAVE a killing field without gun control.
