Grand Old Flag

National pride has been severely wounded here by the Australian version of Big Brother, which - I'm not even going to attempt to figure out the context for this - had the housemates donning sombreros and hurling chili at the Mexican flag. No, really.

It would really be hard to overstate how seriously Mexcio takes its flag - the outrage here is not just that they were defacing the flag, but that the flag is also backwards. This would probably explode into a full-blown diplomatic incident except that Mexican navy is probably incapable of invading Australia, and Australia (speaking of backwards) produces nothing for Mexico to boycott.

That's the dumbest thing I have ever seen! Was there a point to it?
