I Cover Forestburg News. All The Time.

A loyal reader snapped this pic this morning of a Forestburg school. I know an upside down American flag is a distress signal, but I'm not sure of the meaning of an upside down Texas flag.

"...but I'm not sure of the meaning of an upside down Texas flag."

I think it means "Welcome to Forestburg ~ we're dumber than a bag o' hammers."

It was flying that way while you were out of the state.

No, it's a warning for idiot metro mess drivers who come up here and drive down the middle part of the highway instead of keeping their arses on their own side of the road, especially when topping any of our beautiful hills, because they might just get smashed by a big ol' tanker truck. Or else it's a warning to watch for deer or cows on the road.

Jarsnip has probably never been to Forestburg either.

I think it's contagious! The high school kid from Decatur ran out on the field at the beginning of the Battle of the Big Sandy this year with the Texas flag upside, too!! Obviously missed that drill at Boy Scouts meeting that day.......

Not to worry, I just called the Supt. and told her about it.....she said she would have one of the sweet fifth-graders immediately fix it ..... it's 12PM, let's see how long it takes. I'll drive by again in a little bit.

UPDATE......Check in - 1:30PM - I sent Mr. No to take a pic, and the darned thing is STILL UPSIDE DOWN. Lunch is OVA, I'm gonna go all whatchmacallit on someone's arse if it doesn't get turned upright soon.

Q: How many Forestburgians does it take to fly a flag correctly?

A: Apparently all of them. Or none of them if you're a "glass half empty" kind of person.

Meet me on the Forestburg School House Hill so I can kick your butt, Jarsnip.

If it's on a Saturday or Sunday, I will gladly purchase you a glass of wine from our downtown winery, after I get finished with said butt kicking, if I don't roll your arse into the middle of FM455 on said School House Hill, after which you might find yourself squashed by an oil tank truck.

Oh, and it's Forestburgers, not Forestburgians...just ask the Bridwells.

What do they call folks from Alvord or Granbury?

I'm terrified.

"What do they call folks from Alvord or Granbury?"

Smarter than people from Forestburg.

Ha ha - I got my a$$ chewed out by the 5th grade teacher for bringing up the issue in an email and sending her this picture.....she said the 5th graders were busy preparing for the TAKS test..........and if it was so important to me, I should have stopped and fixed it.........like I would set foot on that rinky dink little school's property.

I think I know five or six people from the thriving metropolis, brain trust of Forestburg and if I rallied them all to said flagpole with the task of correcting the misflown flag we would find them standing on each others shoulders wholeheartedly attempting to upright the lone star banner.
