Slightly Clueless

“Mom, I think it would be really hard to start-up a new country. I mean, think of how stressful it would be to come up with a national anthem. And, what about all the pressure involved in designing a new flag? I have anxiety just thinking about it!”

She’s only slightly clueless. I swear.

    That was such a great movie! Hey, if all we had to worry about was a flag and song, life would be so nice! She’s got the right idea. Why worry about an economy or banks!? I mean, “AS IF!!!”


  2. Hahaha… it’s just Art History, that’s all.

    Hey, that flag artwork is HARD. Just look at the number of ideas that were around before the US adopted the stars and stripes! Shoot, we even keep changing the current one every time we add a state. (Or two – if you find a 49-star flag for sale, RUN – don’t walk – away from it, it’s a phony! 😉 )


  4. I’d have trouble not making my national anthem have a bunch of potty humor

    Nancy–when I was a kid,we used to have a three day project in 7th/8th grade where all the kids were broken into countries. We competed against each other doing exactly this….we wrote national anthems, wrote declarions of independence, constitutions, and designed our own flag!

    Maybe she could go to Flag Barn for a cheap deal.


Let Nancy know what you think...
