As I was pulling on my American flag underwear this morning, I started to think about how strange it is that people get so upset about “desecrating the flag” while at the same time, they buy American flag underwear.
I also started to wonder if the U.S. was the only country who did this, but quickly realize that quite a few of them do. Now the question becomes, what country DOESN’T turn it’s flag into underwear? Also, wouldn’t wars end faster if they just sent out good-looking people in the underwear of that country’s flag? Everyone would be distracted. Or better yet, everyone has to fight in flag underwear.
My son’s school is having a week long program with children’s choirs from around the world. Our family is hosting two girls from the Netherlands. One of the things we have to do is to find and collect the kids at the end of the concerts. We were told to simply look for the flag to find our group.
Russia is another country participating. Above is a picture of the Dutch and Russian flags. Now you see why I went ten minutes in the opposite direction yesterday to the wrong group.
I plan on choosing students from a country with a more distinctive flag next time. I’m hoping for some kids from Martinique. (Google it.)
