Green Beret Bibs

I'm not much of a fan of Green berets, in the sense of army special operation units. The whole idolization of soldiers doing what they are trained to do is not well spent on me.   
If any, I prefer a Green Basque, with a good sized txortena in the centre. Obviously, there are people who think differently (have a look at the stats for this web site and notice how often people get here by searching for "green berets"...) and a whole industry has developed around that. 
Imitation green berets, books -serious non-fiction and adolescent fiction, songs, desk statues and even baby-bibs!
Who in their right mind would give this to a baby..?

  1. Only a father with his own frustrated and unfulfilled dreams and ideas of his own manhood, trying to foist them onto his vulnerable and impressionable son. Some might call is child abuse. Not unlike forcing children to go to church and Sunday school.
