Richard was enjoying a sandwich at Jimmy John’s when he noticed something odd about a sign on the wall. The patriotic placard, meant to advertise that the sandwiches are “handmade in the U.S.A.,” doesn’t have an American flag on it. It is nice and patriotic-looking and all. It what looks like the flag of Liberia with an extra white stripe at the top, which Richard was told is a “stylized American flag.”
This American flag found for sale at Dollar Tree has either fallen through a crack in space and time from a future when the United States has annexed Canada, or the Chinese company that produced it screwed up. Dollar Tree, for its part, claims that the flag is a “patriotic banner” and not supposed to be a regulation American flag. Right.
