I have thought about buying another pair every year to mark the anniversary of Airstream ownership. Increase the flock...

There's a thought, if you have the room to carry them all. It would certainly make for interesting conversation. You could have some fun with the arrangements, that's for sure.

That's the only reason I don't have a flock of 'em. I guess I could carry them in the truck.

Someone expressed to me that they thought the flamingos were a gay and lesbian symbol. I don't get it. What in the world gave him that idea? I just associate them with grandma's yards of the 60's.

The color pink originally in the 40's was going to used by marketers as masculine color and light blue as feminine -

Point being is that colors as such carry arbitrary cultural constructs with them.

I suspect it's because of a movie from the early 1970s called Pink Flamingoes which I'll leave it to Wikipedia to describe. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pink_Flamingos
