I would not be proud to be Pocatello

This came dead last in the North American Vexillogical Association's ranking of 150 American civic flags. It's so awful I almost wet my pants laughing at it the first time I saw it, just sitting there at the bottom of the list, looking so pleased with itself despite being the most piss-poor thing anybody ever saw. It looks like a bumper sticker. And incredibly, it's got a copyright notice and trademark on it. Who's going to swipe this misbegotten idea?

With this flag, I would not be proud to be Pocatello, Idaho. I would furl it up and hang my head in shame. I would turn in my city charter and quietly disincorporate.
