I would suggest never using this one. Flag burning
means an entirely different sort of activity to
many of us. Rather than being a respectful retirement
of Old Glory, it is an act of protest - and if
actually a type of speach - should be categorized
as fighting words.

This I won't even comment on, except to say that for
many of us Veterans, jokes about the flag are not
funny - even when well intentioned.
Generally, I have a well developed - though odd -
sense of humor.
