"It's okay to tread on me now. I have health insurance."



You remember my challenge to redesign the Gadsden flag to reflect the new civility. That one is from Chip Cannon.

I've got more to come, and I'm still accepting entries. The idea is that the old threatening snake is inappropriate and must be toned down, lest unstable individuals take it the wrong way. You can go off the civility message, however. Just use the Gadsden flag and be interesting or amusing or something.

The only civil snake is a dead snake?

This idea of Ann's was inspired, and so are the responses.

"The only civil snake is a dead snake?"

The Fat Broad in B.C apparently seems to think so..

Enjoyed PJ O'Rourke's take on the civility of the NYT recently:

"But liberalism, as personified by the New York Times, became a dotty old aunt sometime during the Johnson administration. She’s provincial, eccentric, and holds dull, peculiar views about the world. Still, she has our fond regard, and we visit her regularly in her nursing home otherwise known as Arts and Leisure and the Book Review. Or we did until Sunday, January 9, when she began spouting obscenities and exposing herself...."

There ought to be one holding a TOW missile launcher or whatever saying, "I may have health insurance, but I will still defend myself".

Or something a little more amusing.

That one is from Chip Cannon.


If I had a Chip Cannon...I'd make somebody pay...

I agree with Michael Farris. This is the best one yet.

Is Chip Cannon the son of reporter Lou Cannon?

Would be funny to cover up the snake's head with a smiley face...

Penny said...

It's a good thing our Chip Cannon doesn't live in cow country. That might get messy.

LOL!

That is the best one. Perfect!
