‘Freedom’ means being able to wear matching shirts you’ve sewn out of bargain bin patterns you bought at the USA R’ US Fabrics store, any damn time you want.

US and A! US and A! America, f*ck yeah!!!!!!!!!
i don’t know which is scarier – the jacket or the fact that they actually went out in matching outfits.
AMERICA FUCK YEAAAAH!!!!
Shouldn’t there be at least three eagles? And maybe a moon…
They were probably shopping to pick up the latest style of patriotic magnetic car decals from Wal-Mart.
Their shirts make you WISH those colors would run.
Ghost of George Carlin
They went in for their new brown ribbon magnets to decorate up the tailgate of their Dodge pickup truck.
Hey don’t mess with my walmart people. We are proud not to fit in.
Give em a break, they just stopped in on their way to a “Palin 2012″ rally at the local trailer park!
Thg irony just about kills me. Walmart wouldn’t know a “made in America” item if they tripped over it. Too busy outsourcing all the work and manufacturing so they can make 6 Billion profit instead of 5.5 Billion
Lee Greenwood must have been in town.
shiver me timbers
They are so proud to be patriots, but I wonder if the male half of the equation is proud to look so ‘whipped. After all, nothing says ‘whipped like dressing in matching outfits.
These shirts will be SURE to give the 3 Wolf and Moon shirts a run for their money!

Being from Missouri, I instantly knew that’s where this picture had to have come from before I even read the caption.
I will bet you an American flag it was in Branson!
Hey…just remember these are people’s family members. If these were your parents..think how you would feel is someone was talking about them like this Karma ya know
Hey don’t laugh I had to look close to make sure that wasn’t my mom. It wasn’t. She was home watching Faux News
LOL @ GO AMERICA!!! I’m from Missouri, too…I’d bet either Branson OR St. Charles County….
Looks like something I might see in my hometown of Shelton, Warshington. Awesome.
Yet another Missourian here. Branson and St. Charles County are good guesses, but we can’t forget about Jefferson County, the state’s meth capital.
And Anonymous, I understand what you mean, but frankly, I wouldn’t blame people for laughing at my parents if they left the house wearing stuff like that.
Some people need to get over themselves. It’s all in good fun, like Twisted Sister mentioned. — ” I wouldn’t blame people for laughing at my parents if they left the house wearing stuff like that.”
Now, we need to leave Mr. and Mrs. Evil Knevil alone!!!!!
Hey now! I am from St. Charles County and it isn’t there…. They are from Lincoln county, next door!
@Wildstargoethe, I have been to the Shelton walmart more times than I care to admit. And I know exactly what you mean.
I got money that they both have dingo boots on!!!! There’s nothing like a Dingo man and women….
Those shirts are from Cracker barrel
Dingo Boots on both of them… I bet money they have them…..
Hahaha!! Yes, I could expect to see this at the Troy Walmart, too…does Bowling Green have a Wally??
Wow, there is something worse than the matching Hawaiian shirts or velor jumpsuits.
“We’z on our way’s to NAS CAR”
Speaking to the person who mentioned that this could be my parent- I would make fun of them my self if this was my mom and dad!!!HAHAHA, hey they make fun of the Rob Zombie t-shirts I ware
aslangibi, don’t blame Walmart. Blame all those lovely Americans who would prefer paying $1 for a Chinese imitation instead of $4 for the American made. I work at Walmart, and I have heard customers complain about the price of the made in the USA items, and YES…we do carry them. Thing is, people want quality but refuse to pay for it. They want it CHEAP.
Something else for you to keep in mind concerning cost of product. I hear people complain about the cost of groceries while in my checkout line. Yet, they have no remorse about tossing a frozen item, gallon of milk, package of meat etc up onto my candy shelf. Which I won’t get a chance to clean up until I have no customers. So of course, all that stuff has to be thrown away.
WHY can’t they just HAND it to us so we know it has to be put back Immediately? And it is never the canned or boxed stuff. It is always the perishables. We toss it, YOU pay.
i think it is cute, and shows love that they are willing to dress alike and be in public!

AMERIKA should put all Jews in Concentration Camps !
Carroll is a tool
America F_CK YEA!!!!!
I’ll bet you a RC Cola and a Moon Pie that they both worked for the OBama campaign.
……..or maybe not
Bet they bought the best of Garth Brooks compilation.
I’ll bet the shirts were made somewhere other than the US of Awesome
I’ll bet those jackets were made in China
It’s the 4th of July and they are proud to be Americans. America…the best damn country in the world.
AND THEY CAN’T WAIT TO GET BACK HOME AND WATCH GLEN BECK AND BILL O’RILEY ON FOX NEWS.
Yup another Missourian saying Branson. Lmao, he must really love his wife, no way my husband would ever match me.
to bad we are driving the national icon of the bald eagle to extinction. i wonder what those jackets would say about the USA then. that we are doomed to extinction as well?
I’m not surprised that it was taken in my state. I see that shit all the time, but not always at Walmart either. >.>
okay the shirt itself is awesome but only when it isnt being worn lol
September 7th, 2009
What’s the matter “Angela”, are you ashamed of your country? LOL @ the typical pencil pusher comments from some.
Too bad they don’t realize that wearing the US flag in such a manner is against the national flag code. According to the code that is a disgrace to America, not a praise to it.
Give the couple a break! We are all so critical these days.
what is UP with all the men dressed like women? and not in Cali??
Amurica, love it, or go to Kazahkstan!
Walmart is the last refuge of a patriot!
I KNOW WHERE THEY GOT THOSE.
We sold those stupid patriotic polos at Kohl’s (I’m an employee there) during the months of June and July.
Kohl’s is the Walmart of department stores.
And yeah, all of our shit is made in foreign, impoverished countries.
I typically think that matching outfits are a serious crime against fashion. The only time it is ever acceptable for a couple to be this matchy-matchy is when they’re going to a sporting event.
You know they were both going to exit to a big ass motorcylcle outside with mom in the back listening to some country America rocks glory song.
Do you know how to freedom kiss?
Our “freedom” has been sold to People’s Republic. We don’t have a true option to wear, buy or own much made here by the workers in our own country. We also need jobs – other than Government, IT, or Walmart Greeter. Before anyone will be able to catch a picture of me in a Walmart, Target, or Kohl’s (dressed or not) – I will have to see evidence of a change in thought and purchasing patterns in consumer outlets. Oh – you can add Macy’s, Belks, Penneys, even Bob Evans (where Amish cookbooks are “printed” in China and “Grandma’s Kitchin’” signs are made there too). Add in all the “Country” items in the storefronts – including the rocking chairs at Cracker Barrell.
The latest statistics I’ve read are that a full quarter (25%) of America’s HOME-LESS are veterans. Keep that in mind the next time you pick up a ten-dollar shirt for your child – that will most likely fall apart or shrink the first or second time you wash it. Pay the 15 dollars instead for the “Made in the USA” sign. Look for them. It will be hard – but they do exist.
As you can see – there is a real reason to have disdain for Walmart Shoppers. If equating their lack of style or concern to the laziness expressed by just popping into the local Walmart – making the richest exploiters on the planet – even richer – even to their own detriment – then I wish a hearty “God Bless You” to the creators of this site.
While I see the joke to be made in wearing matching shirts, I don’t see what the problem is wearing a patriotic shirt? Are some of you so dumb that you’ll laugh at people being proud to be in America?

All-Americans buying All-Chinese stuff so that the Communist Chinese Government take 250 billion of the profit they make off their cheap crap and use it attempting to hack All-American defense computers.
made in china
yo wat is up with yall hating america yall should think bout this and be proud your in a freedom country and are free with speech
if your not proud and dont care what you get and hate THIS COUNTRY I SUGGEST YOU GET OUT AND STAY AWAY CAUSE YOU SHOULDNT BE LIVING IN THIS COUNTRY JUST TO EARN SOME HARD EARN MONEY
we are a great country maybe THERE IS MANY THINGS THAT ARE JUST PATHITIC OF HOW ALOT OF THINGS RUN BUT AT LEAST YOU CAN DO MANY THINGS AS ONE FREE SPEECH IF WE COULDNT HAVE FREE SPEECH THEN WE WOULD PROBABLY END UP IN PRISON FOR ALL OF US THAT TALKS ALOT AND GIVES GOOD OPPINION
other wise im PROUD TO BE AN AMERICAN AND GOD BLESS U S A
@kenny2009: You could at least TRY to sound educated, you know.
September 8th, 2009
If they hadn’t sent all our jobs to other other countries maybe we could afford to shop American. The companies didn’t want to pay more than minimum wage so every sewing job, I know of, went to Mexico or elsewhere. Before they sent the jobs away if you where sewing piece work and made over minimum wage for the day, they would give your job to a new girl & put you sewing something else you could never meet production. How would you like to hem 100 towels an hour and still not make $5 an hour? I know I should have gotten an education and I better job, but believe it or not sometimes you just have to feed your family and there’s no money left to get an education.
My wife and I made a vow if we start waring identical we shoot each other,any way lighten up people enjoy the joke.

just because these 2 people are wearing matching tops,,,,, surely there is no need to be so patronising ?Have you looked in the mirror today ?
September 10th, 2009
i really happen to like this one.
Can I by the album, “When the Eagle Soars” by John Ashcroft at a Walmart store yet?
Is that your wife and you in the picture?
Seriously, couples of any age that dress the same just look stupid! My husband & I recently saw a 20 yr. old or so couple both dressed in the same brand gray sweats, same socks & same Reebok sneakers & I broke out into hysterical laughter, then my husband saw what I was laughing about & we were practically rollin on the floor. You know that the men didn’t choose this option & in my opinion just makes the poor souls seem neutered. SO for those women who think it’s “cute” to dress the same, have a heart & let your husband keep his family jewels intact when he refuses.
Kenny 2009, well said, nice punctuation and excellent use of capatilization. You definately represent the great American institution of Elementary School. Hell, George Bush couldn’t have said it better. No really he couldn’t have. I’m guessing that is you there on the left in the picture. Am I right? huh? I’m right aren’t I?
I actually did see these people….picture had to be taken at the Branson, MO. Walmart. I commented to my husband that if I ever got the notion to want to dress alike, for him to please just shoot me!!! Can’t believe they made it on here and I actually saw them!
Me an my wife wear the same style shirts at the same time sometimes
TDS… couldn’t agree with you more.
One time me & my bf both wore burnt orange Longhorns tees (Hook ‘Em!) & I have to tell you I felt like a total douche.
September 11th, 2009
I saw this guy last night at the Wal-Mart I work at! His wife wasn’t with him but he had on the exact same shirt, I nearly blew soda out my nose!
Go team America… Fuck yeah
Would not it be great if those matching shirts were made in America?
A classic example of why “Buy one – get one free” is not always a bargain.
September 12th, 2009
um…….. why the HELL would you even wear a shirt like that!!! i would be completely embarrassed to be caught dead in such a stupid outfit. they probably have a kid in the army killing innocent iraqi civillians
@ Wild Bill — You really need to not talk crap about American soldiers. Whatever your thoughts on the war may be (& thank goodness we’re all entitled to them) to drag soldiers into it goes beyond bad taste & disrespect into an area I can’t quite come up with a fitting word to describe. Focus on those responsible for it & not on the brave men & women who have or are currently in the middle of it.
Is it some kind of weird Southern thing for couples to dress alike? I see this kind of shit at the NEX in Norfolk, VA, all the damn time!
Hey your shirt shit in isle 2.
These two people then went home and freedom kissed their freedom poodle.
Kenny2009, learn how to spell. Dork.
September 13th, 2009
@WILDBILL You had to go and mention our soldiers. I have a son in the Army and he’s going over nest month for another year, I do not support this stupid war but I do support our men and women over there. Do you realize this is a intire volenteer Army NO one was forced to join, if it was’t for them we would not have an Army. ….If you do not support our troops Please feel free to stand in front of our troops…..Have a good day!
looks like bowling shirts
September 14th, 2009
The great 48
The flag on the shirts only has 48 stars. Either they bought these shirts in the mid-50s, or the Chinese workers cranking these bad boys out haven’t got a recent copy of a history book or map. Fail.
i wrk at a hotel and you would not BELIEVE how many people walk in the door wearing things like this! in fact, today i just checked in a couple wearing a complete “my son’s in the navey” outfit – including matching hats, t-shirts and wrist bands! hahaha, i bet they came from a shopping trip at walmart prior to check-in.
Ya’ll got something against America?
Fucking Commie assholes.
Yeah, I’m a fucking Conservative, proud of it too.
Toby Keith is giving autographs here today?
September 15th, 2009
A. Why would you stare at a picture trying to count the number of stars especially when the blue field is partially obscured?
B. My son is Army. He stands proud, ready to defend your right of free speech to ridicule him and those who don’t fear to display pride in the country they live in. If you haven’t raised your kids to be willing to defend their country then you don’t, and never will, understand the parents who are proud of their sons and daughters accomplishments in the military.
September 16th, 2009
Do any of these people know that they are being photographed?
“LET FREEDOM RING”
OMG! I think her purse matches the whole outfit, too!! COOL!!!
September 18th, 2009
the boyfriend asked me if we could get these…
I actually like the shirt(s) , nothing wrong with being patriotic, and besides compared to every other picture on this site they look normal.
September 19th, 2009
Not everyone can think for themselves, and these are labels that help us identify them.
Ok, so they match, funny right? What if they were wearing those shirts to honor a person serving overseas now? Or someone that lost their life over in Iraq? Would this be funny then? Shame on each and everyone of you that think this is funny.
September 22nd, 2009
Hey hey, easy! At least they will show their patriotism on a day other than some national holiday. Fourth of July, Labor Day, Memorial Day, the anniversary of 911, and wooo there’s American flags flying high everywhere. On everyone’s clothes, cars, trucks. In their yards.
But any other day, they’re noticably absent. It’s sad. It saddens me to see such negative criticism. That’s what’s wrong with the world. While I admit they are a bit garrish, they at least have enough love for one another to want the world to know they’re a matching pair, both in wardrobe and in life.
One last thought, those shirts look an awful lot like bowling shirts Maybe they’re part of a bowling league.
I challenge you to check your critical thoughts of one another. Look for the deeper meaning, not just the surface afront that you think has been made.
The world’s too judgemental.
September 23rd, 2009
It was the 4th of July so they put away their wolf shirts and donned these tasty treats
September 29th, 2009
I think this pic was taken in Columbia! Either that, or my friend and I saw a different dude at Wal-Mart wearing the same shirt, which might be even more fantastic.
This truely makes me sad to be from Missouri!…but i cant help but envy the raging boner they have for America!
September 30th, 2009
that’s how you spot a terrorist
October 2nd, 2009
Hey Jerry, you don’t need to count all the stars to know it’s wrong. A 50-star flag has the stars arranged in diagonal rows. The old pre-1950 flag with 48 stars has them arranged in synchronized horizontal rows. This is clearly a 48-star flag, at best. Perhaps it’s got 54 or 60? You can see 6 rows but who knows how many columns. But I’m guessing that 48 is an accurate count.
By the way, wearing this shirt is anti-Alaska.
October 9th, 2009
To some of the morons who commented. Ever think they may have just come from some sort of Patriotic event? Maybe buying last minute supplies for the Welcome Home celebration for a family member coming home from the sandbox? Geez this is not your typical “dressing alike” photos.
