Let's explore the idea of a "badge of honor." I'm sure the phrase goes back to the early days of the military, where guys got award "badges of honor" for doing something heroic, like shooting down an enemy fighter plane or torching a village of innocent civilians. NOWADAYS, if you make it through anything remotely challenging, whatever you get out of it is considered your badge of honor. For example, if you make it through a particularly CRAZY night of drinking, the mystery bruises you wake up with are considered your badge of honor. What a HERO you are.
But look at these rings. Whether you think they'e collegiate, old-timey, or Hunger Games-y, these Badge Rings ($59, With Care Goods) are pretty badass, and will help you continue your delusions that you've done anything worthy of claiming an honest-to-God badge of honor.
