Hoist the black flag

“Every normal man must be tempted at times to spit on his hands, hoist the black flag, and begin slitting throats” Henry Louis Mencken

I had two recent flag outrages sent in, one from Stephanie showing  a hills version,  and one from Matt with a city slicker abomination. That’s Perth isn’t it? The city where there’s not much difference between Hillbilly and Super Nerd.  The Super (superrrrr?) vehicle does perhaps have the worst advantage in that the company also has a ridiculous name, but hand out a banjo, marry your cousin, or replace your motherboard,  Perth is the place to be. These are both horrible.

    … the last refuge of the scoundrel. Does anyone know where I can purchase a Libyan flag? I’d like to glue one to the top of my head.

        Nationalism is an infantile disease. It is the measles of mankind. Heroism on command, senseless violence, and all the loathsome nonsense that goes by the name of patriotism – how passionately I hate them!

        • Emerson? Einstein? These two old fart quotes make me want to take up flag waving. Is there nothing from Sid Vicious or Charlie Sheen?

    It looks like Superrr Nerd might have a bit of joke action going on on the rear window, too.

    A quick perusal of his website would seem to confirm this:

    Refreshingly appropriate use of apostrophes, however.
