Just to debunk the popular Facebook meme…

"The Moment You Realize He's Really Captain Puerto Rico."  Captain America: Designed in 1941.  Puerto Rico Flag: Designed in 1952.  That moment you realize... Puerto Rico stole their flag from a Comic Book.

Like the BBC, who showed Team Ireland as Team India, this Sunday broadcast by an American TV News station only got forty percent of the world flags correct in their own report. Worse still, they failed to get their own country’s flag right…

But in their defense, 40% isn’t too bad, given that WXYZ News 7 is based in Detroit, Michigan, which is considered by many to be North Windsor, Ontario.
