Two Overheard Conversations in Border's Books, Downtown Seattle

I'm looking through magazines by the info desk.

Customer approaches desk. He's bald and schlubby looking. He said the following as if he had written it out and then memorized it in front of a mirror.

"Hello and happy 4th! I say that reassure you that I am a patriot and a proud American, albeit a radical one. I am looking for a book that has the full text of the Declaration of Independence and, if possible, the Constitution. I plan on attending the fireworks tonight and reading them loudly to the people gathered to watch."

Next customer. Chubby smiley guy, he hadn't heard the previous guy:

"Hello and happy 4th. Look, I don't want to appear unpatriotic, but do you have something about being an American or just about America from a funny perspective? You know, making fun of people who are patriotic. It's a hostess gift for a gay picnic I'm going to this afternoon."
