    I do not salute the flag This is topical

    again just now. I first came across it as a group a couple of years ago, and thought it a rather odd thing to say somewhat in the vein of I use lavatory paper or the more contentious I like chips in brown gravy ( ha! Oh foolish eejits who know not the way of salt'n'sauce); but...
