Postcard With 51-State Flag

$1-2, www.zazzle.com

While the rest of the nation was consumed by rampant ideological buffoonery in Novem­ber, Puerto Rico was busy voting on whether to become the 51st of the United States of America. You'd think after watching the great 48 (plus two) behave like complete ninnies, they'd be deterred from wanting in on official statehood, but here we are. Pick up a couple 51-state postcards to send from whatever faraway place you manage to escape to next. – Monica Riese
