Apparently, Pahrump, Nev. wants more publicity

    Being the central location in a two-part Studio 60 wasn't enough for the people of Pahrump, Nev.

    Now, the Town Council has voted 3-2 to ban the display of foreign flags.

    No word yet on the reaction of Judge Bebe.

    Art Bell could not be reached for comment, but it's believed he's against flags from outer space and from the future.

    Did not know that. I was about to make a joke asking if he was hanging out with Bobby Fischer, but I guess he's living in Iceland now.
  5. Where's Smart Hick Judge John Goodman on this one?
  6. I thought Pahrump was going to change its name to "Pahrump-pa-pum-pum" (at least I heard David Bowie and Bing Crosby suggested that...)

    Presumably they don't have a minor-league hockey team. Otherwise, they'd be busted for flying the maple leaf. Wonder if they have a British pub sporting a union jack.

    This could get interesting. There are lots of national flags with designs so basic that people sometimes make replicas without knowing it. You know, when small car dealerships or cheesy apartment complexes fly random flags in front of their businesses. There's one car dealership in my town that flies a row of small red-white-and-blue, horizontally-striped flags. I'm sure they're not celebrating the Netherlands, but it is the Dutch flag. I've seen accidental Austrian (red-white-red) and Salvadoran (blue-white-blue) flags at other car dealerships. But the funniest was when I was in high school and I noticed one local apartment complex had several plain green flags flying in front. This was right around the time the US bombed Libya:


    Here come the cops to bust the management of Whisper Creek Village...who are such brazen jihadist scum that they would fly Libyan flags in front of their shitass apartment complex.

    Along that same line, a Colorado teacher is getting his huevos put into a vise for displaying foreign flags in the classroom...

    Yet another related topic...

    Interestingly, it's illegal to fly foreign flags in Mexico, except on watercraft with a permit to operate on Mexican waters. Don't have the time to find citation for this, but I do remember being warned about this when I lived there.

    I don't think the law is enforced very much, though. I saw foreign flags in front of restaurants, bars and hotels in Mexico and obviously no one gave a shit. People aren't even supposed to fly the Mexican flag without permission from the office of the Secretería de Gobernación. But of course that's not enforced...around the Sept. 16 holiday the entire country is covered with the tricolor.

    There are plenty of laws down there that aren't enforced much...
