Icon84 Knapsack maker finds its niche

The company also got some free publicity a few years ago when it was discovered that the French language on a tag inside bags wasn't instructions for taking care of the product but a message: "We're sorry our president is an idiot. We didn't vote for him." The company said it was an inside reference to Bihn; others took it as a slam on George Bush. Bihn wouldn't say who placed the tags. As urban-legend research site Snopes.com commented, "More cynical observers believe that the message was planted by Bihn as a means of garnering publicity for his company, with just enough ambiguity built in to get his point across while maintaining a modicum of deniability."
