Tightly wound colonel needed to be more specific.

Reminds me of when Grandpa didn't want to come
To Thanksgiving at first now it's his new favorite holiday despite it all

Maybe disrespecting America is also encouraging TERRORISM. Like in Robot Chicken.

No it ain't the twins moved to America so they can now express the
First amendment right to express themselves

ROFLOL!! I love it Keeny!

Now all we need are an Aussie and a Kiwi to move into the same street and show off *their* red, white and blue! :D

Imagine the conniption fit the colonel would if it were the French red, white, and blue. XD

American superiority makes a lot of patriots pretty arrogant, like him.

The U.S. and the U.K. are at it again! :D

Somehow when I read this, I hear loud and clear the voice of R. Lee Ermy.
I now have an excuse to drive the rest of my neighborhood to absolute lunacy.
Fly the flag of Great Britain for my across the street neighbor. At some point, haul up the Canadian flag.

I like the voice styling of R. Lee Emery. That neighbor colonel must have his voice. :D

@Kangaar Foxfire:- First one of us Aussies who get over there will have to do our bit to annoy the new neighbours.... or maybe I'll just confuse 'em and put up the Hawaiian flag. ;-)

@FTL (Sorry if I've told this story previously). The morning after I arrived in Canada I opened the blinds to my hotel window and there directly across from me, hanging in a window of the building opposite was a flag of the boxing kangaroo. It ended up being the first thing I ever photographed overseas - there's irony in that! :)

Well, I guess you were still in the Commonwealth so there'd be a fair chance of finding another Aussie or two... but on the first day? That's pretty damn impressive! Did you ever find out who they were? Closest I had to that was having a car accident happen in front of me in my third week in Germany and when I stopped to help the second car to pull up was also an Aussie on holiday... glad his German was better than mine! I tell you, we Aussies are everywhere! ;-)

That's one of the many things I love about Canada; it's one of the Commonwealth nations. Just a pity they designed their flag with no union jack. :(. I didn't find out who the owners of the kangaroo flag were as it would have involved trying to identify the room's occupants. However I encountered other Aussies from Vancouver through to Banff - most of them apparently there for the ski resorts (but what's wrong with our own?!) I met Aussies working in the branches of my then employer in Vancouver, and a waitress at The Inns of Banff was a young Aussie woman on a working holiday. There were also some Aussies traveling on the same run of The Canadian (the transcontinental train) but I chose not to associate with them after they hogged the train's observation car - leaving it to me to set a better example in someone else's country.

Man, 235 years pass by and some people are still holding a grudge. ;)

Don't get me wrong, I consider myself to be proud to be America, but I'm certainly not IN love with the US :D There are some people so patriotic here that they probably get a hard-on every time they see the Stars and Stripes, hear the Star-Spangled Banner, or hear Lee Greenwood's performance of "God Bless the USA". No doubt this colonel is one of those people XD
