How could you NOT FUCKING NOTICE a Confederate battle flag was flying over your capitol for a couple of fucking hours you idiot corncobs.
Confederate battle flag raised over Mississippi Supreme Court building
A Confederate battle flag flew atop a state building in Mississippi for a couple hours after workers mistakenly bought it, a state spokeswoman told the Clarion-Ledger newspaper.
The flag was put up on the state Supreme Court building in Jackson about 2 p.m. Friday and taken down by 4 p.m.
Kym Wiggins, public information officer for the state Department of Finance and Administration, gave this account, the Clarion-Ledger said:
Workers went to a local vendor to buy new flags to replace a state flag that was torn. They were given two boxes labeled "Mississippi State Flag" -- but the flags inside were Confederate battle flags. A maintenance worker then put up the flag, and the mistake wasn't noticed for a couple of hours.
Wiggins described the incident as "highly unusual."
A professor emeritus of political science at the University of Southern Mississippi gave the Clarion-Ledger a different take. "Have we seceded already?" said Joseph Parker. “The execution is faster than I thought.”
May the FORCE be with you!

I'd rather have a bottle in front of me than a frontal lobotomy.

Mississippi is one of two (I think) states that used the Confederate Battle flag within its flag design. I'm not sure I would notice, what with the flag being all folded when I sent it up.
Pretty funny, though.
