I’m kind of in a daze from meeting a last minute change in deadline. I haven’t been this sleepy in ages. So without further rambling, here’s a cartoon about the flag.
I would take a thousand shits on the American flag if I thought it would convince anyone to give the Constitution and Bill of Rights the same reverence they bestow on that rather tacky piece of fabric.
And in case this is the first BFW cartoon you ever read, I don’t really believe a star will fall off a veteran’s flag if the Pledge of Allegiance isn’t recited. It was my intent to illustrate what an empty gesture the pledge is. It’s certainly way down on my list of gripes, but the Pledge of Allegiance is something that should be abolished. Forcing children to say something in the name of freedom could quite possibly be a contributing factor to all the cynicism and apathy that surrounds us.
Matt Bors also has a comic about the flag this week. His flag bikini joke is better than mine.
And remember, USA = number one:
Next Week: A shitty idea that’s been dogging me for months finally sees the light of day, thanks in large part to my inability to be funny under pressure.
