Are you crazy????? Plastic, pink flamingo lawn ornaments aren't "so popular in Florida"!!!!! ..... They ARE Florida!!!!!
Cripes, where would we be without them???? They're as important as painted door screens, in Baltimore.... or, white shutters on Nantucket (Directions to my house: "Follow Main Street to the house with weatherbeaten, grey shingles and white shutters and turn right"..... RIGHT, THAT tells someone just when to turn!!!)
P.S. I'm hoping that our new, ever-popular Governor, one Rick Scott, will use his enormous power to make the plastic, pink flamingo the Florida STATE BIRD!!!! (Who's ever even HEARD of a "mockingbird"..... except if they listened to Inez and Charlie Foxx singing??????)
