International Incident in Chinatown: Elephant Flag Appears to be Much Larger than Neighboring US and PRC Flags

So, to fix things, you gotta shrink the jumbo flag or embiggen* the PRC flag, then you gotta fly the oliphant flag at a lower altitude, and while you’re at it, make sure your PRC flag looks natty instead of ratty, you know, the way it looks now…

Oh, it’s time to burn Old Glory:

Oh, what’s that? Focus? All right.

Dude was carrying an assortment of … devices? 

There was a message written in blue on this particular flag, but I don’t know what it said. And there might have been a few skid marks on it as well.

Of course the SFPD was keeping an close eye on things, so they had some uniformed officers swoop in to recover the victim:

But only Gaia knows who brought this flag to CM and who set it afire.

I’ll note that most Critical Mass participants don’t burn American flags…
