Fake Captain of a Fake Ship
This reminds me of when I was four or five, and my neighbor at camp used to let me and my brother wear a captain's hat and "drive" his boat on the lake. As an adult, the only instances in which one could wear this jacket would be either ironically or if he/she were trapped in Mr. Rogers Land of Make-Believe. First of all, the insignia reads, "VIP Person." That's as redundant as using your "PIN number" at the "ATM machine." And then it lists a bunch of random letters as the acronym for what's surely a nonexistent nautical organization: AFSCME. I googled it and came up with The American Association of State, County, and Municipal Employees, and that can't be right. A Fake Sea Captain of Marine Equipment? Hmm.
