Okay, so I went to WhiskyFest in New York last summer to gather information for an article, and all attendees got a bunch of swag: flasks, calendars, books, nosing glasses, that sort of thing. I hadn’t opened up the entire bag until a few weeks ago when I noticed the official t-shirt celebrating National Tartan Day, the holiday for Scottish Americans coming up on April 6.
Now… National Tartan Day is the real deal, recognized by Congress, with huge parades. These shirts were handed out by old ladies who were quite earnest, with absolutely no giggling. My question to you, is: can they be frickin’ serious???
