Should have been hanging from the pole from his underwear haha
I, for one, welcome our new flag overlords.
…and it’d be illegal to fight back, since it’d be vandalizing the flag…
Feel free to fight back, the Flag Code only suggests standards of respect and care for the US flag, the Supreme Court has twice ruled it is unconstitutional to be punished for not following the Flag Code.
If a sassy flag tells you otherwise, point them to United States Supreme Court in Texas v. Johnson, 491 U.S. 397 (1989), and U.S. v. Eichman, 496 U.S. 310 (1990)
I think the 50 state flags would rise up in rebellion against the American flag because of their large number and years of oppresion. Hopefully then the 50 will form somewhat of a government in which the humans aren’t slaves…
That first panel just kills me.
If you aren’t stuck for the cash, why don’t get both kinds of peanutbutter? Then you can decide on a daily basis. That’s a much smaller decision.
dang the flag is a bully
The bait and switch in the first panel got me. I was actually really looking forward to your peanut butter insights.
Obviously you pick chunky peanutbutter. It is way better.
Even as a third grader I was puzzled by how the pledge could be so poorly written. Since your readers are among the most intelligent (and funniest) of all comic commenters, I’d like them to submit other versions.
i live in canada, we dont ally ourselves with flags, only people who buy our water
Chunky vs. Smooth is a conundrum for sure. I used to prefer chunky, so one time I bought some “Extreme Super Chunky” peanut butter. I opened it up when I got home and it was just a jar of peanuts.
gaffigan! it’s better verbatim, though.
I agree with Lord-Z. Chunky is definitely the way to go.
Also, I can safely say that I have never once pledged allegiance to the flag. Not so much as mouthing the words or mumbling. Take that, evil-overlord-wannabe piece of ratty cloth!
Am I the only one who hears “stop yer grinnin and mine me some linen” in Bill Paxton’s voice?
That’s whose voice I hear.
One of the many voices you hear, I’m sure
It’s Walter Huston (the old prospector from “The Treasure of the Sierra Madre”) for me.
You have a very random mind, and wouldn’t it be the fabric fields?
I suppose it would be like mining sugar (a pointless task since you harvest sugar cane rather than mine it).
AND you can’t kill em because desecrating the flag is unpatriotic!
I never pledged properly.
“I pledge no allegiance to the flag of the Divided States of America, nor to the lunacy for which it sits, dumb nation, cruel God, with no libery and injustice for all.”
The flag rebellion would be crushed by a gust of wind.
Personally I’d go with creamy.
The Pledge of Allegiance was written in the 1890s by a New York city socialist. It was directed at recent immigrants and was intended to create a psychological bond with their new country and its (eventual) socialist government. Originally, it was accompanied by by a gesture we today call the Fascist salute but which back then was called Roman salute.
The pledge didn’t receive official sanction to the 1930s. The original “indivisible” was changed to “under god” in the 1950s as a counter-reaction to atheistic communism.
America actually managed to survive 160 years without an official pledge or a national anthem.
Just pledge your UNallegiance to the flag.
