Life imitates art


A scene from Simpsons is particularly relevant:
Moe: *spray-painting a sign that reads UNITED STATES FOR UNITED STATESIANS* You know what really aggravateses me? It's dem immigants. Dey want all the benefits of livin' in Springfield, but they ain't even bothered to learn themselves the language.

Homer: *painting a sign that says HOMER SAY "GET OUT!"* Yeah! Those are exactly my sentimonies!

Barney: *incoherent, drunken vocalizations*

Moe: Ah, you said it, Barn.

Via Orcinus.

I'm missing the grammar error on the sign, however, I have boxer shorts made out of the same fabric as that shirt.

Probably that's sharing too much.

You have boxer shorts made out of American flags?

You know, if they ever pass that constitutional amendment to outlaw desecrating the flag, you might be in trouble.

Only if there are skidmarks, surely? I mean, wrapping one's genitals in the flag seems more like a Republican political strategy than desecration.

I don't see these as mutually exclusive. But if they pass that law, they should be damn specific about what constitutes "desecration".
