I find it more patriotic by what it says inside of the hat, than what it says on the outside [View all]

I have been in this habit for over 6 months to pull aside complete strangers who have a very patriotic hat on. You know the types, with the American flag, or USA on the brim, or Never Forget 9/11, Support America, or the American Eagle with Gold Braids (I especially like that one). I know you know the type of hat I'm referring to.

Anyway, I tell them that I greatly admire the patriotism displayed on their hat and I offer them $5 if the hat is made in America. I am totally surprised at almost all the people who will take the hat off and let me look inside, in an effort to "earn" that $5.

19 out of 20 times the hat is made in China (so far, I have only lost $10 in 6 months)

Then I say, as I hand the hat back to the owner and put my $5 bill back in my pocket (or hand the $5 to them, in the 2 occasions that they had "made in USA" on the inside), "I find it more patriotic by what it says inside of the hat, than what it says on the outside".

I know, I know, you're surprised that I haven't been punched out yet. So am I.
