Be fair- the pun involved with "Don't let them see you coming" was quite clever. :)

But otherwise, Yes. Too much crap. "Tactical underwear" - seriously? Just coz it's FDE or black?

I still have my old Army thermal underwear in my old duffel bag. That’s as tactical as I ever got in the undies department.
The Hello Kitty Punisher morale patch looks awfully intimidating, though...

Pretty funny, but not factual. Opossums are marsupials. Armadillos aren't.

If you call it tactical, you can charge more for it.

I agree. No doubt the item below was half the price before they called it a tactical whatever-the-Hell-it-is.

Here it goes for un-necessary Taticool, This is my dog wearing his new vest.

Yes, it is an Extra-Large, even if it looks too small on him. The MOLLE works well in that it allows the packs to be adjusted to best ballance. It isn't weighing him down, it is just so rare for him to be doing anything but shambling from one exhausting nap to the next.

And Belgian Shepherd breeds are the worst!
That's why we have only them, and have two of them, a Belgian Tervuren and a Belgian Sheepdog! Biggest pains in the butt "Always in motion when not under command!" says the AKC manual. Yup, don't I know it!

Pretty much this. Just like anything remotely technological in nature can be sold for more by putting a lowercase "i" in front of the product name.

Yup - most of my kids (I have 4, so "most" can be used) have at least an iPaid, a couple have an iPowned as well.

[pedantic]
in other words, 3 of your 4 kids, because 2 would be "half" (or "a couple" which looks good at first but implies an improper relationship among siblings, so maybe not. maybe "some" would work), and 4 would be "all", so more than half but less than all. and 1, well that's a problem because "a few" implies plural which 1 is not. :?
