    You can't fly the stars & bars uPside doWn in protest - looks the same either way I believe.

    In fact, their whole mythology has been upside down all this time, and they can't tell the difference.

    Oh well-good way to mess with their heads. Ask them if they're sure they've got their flag hanging the right way.
