France, circa 2004

Well, I apparently haven't felt like blogging lately, but since I see other people are giving me credit for it, I figure I might as well share this little gem with you:
I can't remember who sent this to a francophile mailing list I was on at the time, but the timestamp on the image is December 2004, back when "freedom fries" were still all the rage. (And, by the way, FFE: I have a vague idea just how much clicking it must have taken you to find this image. Man you must have been bored.)

UPDATE: According to this Digg post (from 12/2006), the company is Tom Bihn designs, but I can't confirm this. Anyone?

Bonjour from Canada. Wish I knew what brand that was: I'd buy all my clothes from there, even if they were all made out of coarse nylon and made zipping sounds when I walked.

This seems pretty definitive, and lets you buy things with the tag too. :)

This is why we keep you around, John :)

That tag was definitely from Tom Bihn. He makes leather computer bags, hence the washing instructions, and back then he was based out in Port Angeles, our home town. The company has since grown and moved to Seattle, but we had a hoot when the folks at the factory made up that label.

Bored? Naw, just persistent.
