We get the same argument whenever we think about changing our flag. I won't get into any counter arguments here, just that I think it is brought up when they can think of no other argument.

Like UEL, this is also just an anecdote.

I'm just glad they cut out the part that went "All thy base are belong to us." That was a bit much.

I thought I had already posted about this. I got the year wrong. A weird conversation it was, though.
