Bowling a Strike Against Capitalism

Looking for a hip, stylish way to celebrate murderous totalitarianism? Look no further; the folks at Mother Jones are more than happy to supply you with a V. I. Lenin-themed bowling shirt. While your indie rock friends are busy finding gas station attendant shirts with the original names stitched in, you'll be way ahead of them on the coolness curve with the Father of the Revolution printed on your back. As Reason magazines remind us, if you can't afford the $39.50 purchase price, you can surely expropriate it from the kulaks next door before liquidating them and their surplus-value leeching ways. The great Soviet experiment has come to this at last - communist kitsch as capitalism commodity.
