Sniff: Patriotic Tissues

Another example of a patriotic-themed artifact. Paper products were probably one of the more numerous examples. These tissues are clearly tied to 9/11.
I also find another interesting point about these tissues. 9/11 was a tragic event, and it is ironic that a pack of tissues, associated with crying, would have such an appearance.
One really has to wonder about the reasoning behind having a flag-inspired tissue? What would the purpose of such a thing be? Would one really think they showing their patriotism? Or is this about a company trying to sell more tissues by using 9/11 as motivation? As always, any opinions are welcome, but I think the answer is clear.
