I was going up an escalator in Woodfield mall yesterday and as I looked up, I saw two ass cheeks staring me in the face. Just above the cheeks, I was horrified to see shorts that were about 6 inches long with the American flag printed on the backside.
Did you know there was a flag code? ushistory.org states: "According to the Flag Code, a flag is anything "by which the average person seeing the same without deliberation may believe the same to represent the flag." That means that anything that looks like the flag, printed on any object is considered a flag.
I know complaining about this makes me seem old, but when I sing the Star Spangled Banner and I get to the words: ...Gave proof through the night that our flag was still there.., I can't help but think how overwhelming it must have been for those soldiers to see that flag standing and in order to pay respect to those soldiers, this is where I DON'T want to see the flag this Fourth of July:
Tomorrow I look at celebrities that I'd rather not see wearing the flag - please follow Cheaper Than Therapy on Facebook
