Things you should know about the pink flamingo:
- They are made in Massachusetts.
- A real plastic pink bird has Don Featherstone's signature molded into the rump of the lawn ornament. (Without the signature, it's a fake fake bird.)
- The ubiquitous symbol of bad taste inspired the John Water's film, Pink Flamingos.
It has been suggested that "Everyone please stand in your yard on one leg for a moment of silence.”
