From www.usflag.org/flagetiquette.html: The flag should not be used as part of a costume or athletic uniform, except that a flag patch may be used on the uniform of military personnel, fireman, policeman and members of patriotic organizations.

Why does Fox News wish Olympians to disrespect the US flag?

What's the over/under for how long it takes a conservative to complain that when Fox News picked on Gabby, the liberals were in an uproar, but now that the lamestream MSM Onion does it, now its totally funny and cool to do?

/they don't really get juxtaposition in humor - that directly picking on someone is different than a humorous observation that happens to involve that someone. I.e. laughing at someone vs with someone.

I don't care about either one of those issues.

What we really need to do is recognize that winning two gold medals while representing the US isn't patriotic enough. We need to have her citizenship revoked and ship her to Syria.

Barring the inevitable over-use, "Disapproving McKayla" has enormous meme potential.

No matter how much some of these athletes claim to love what they do, I can't shake the feeling that they don't KNOW anything else and that the whole thing is rooted in parent-imposed indoctrination at a very young age. Mainly in the case of gymnasts. Those girls don't seem happy at all.

Of course you know that means you shouldn't use an actual flag as opposed to the pattern of the flag but then you couldn't make your stupid point.

Really, a flag debate? I thought the flag was just for desperate politicians out of dirt on their opponents.

What happened to The Onion? They used to be funny. Now it's just a lot of swearing as if it were now written by and for 12 year olds.

I saw this as a commentary on just how f*cked up the world of gymnastics is. A lot of what's in the article is close to the truth. That's not laughing with.

I think this means cutting up an actual flag to make a costume, not wearing a Stars and Stripes outfit.

/could very well be wrong

Pretty sure The Onion has always had a lot of swearing. The contrast between "serious newspaper article" and "dropping F-bombs like a linguistic Dresden" is a routine source of humor for them. But it's never been in all or even most of their pieces. Here's a recent one that doesn't appear to use any profanity:

Pay for the Onion? WTF is that all about?

Actually, the best thing to do when you want to read humor is, find a link to the Onion ... AND GO ELSEWHERE!

Come on! Who wouldn't want to always be living with an injury in exchange for damaging your growth plates so much you'll be 8 inches to a foot shorter than you would have been without stressing your body while it's going through puberty?

I've always been amused by that. Parents scream, "I don't want my child playing football!!!" Meanwhile, according to every study/article I see, other sports like gymnastics, soccer, basketball, wrestling, and cheerleading are much more dangerous for a child. This is presumably because the kids haven't reached the size/speed capable of creating the multiple-G force crashes we see on TV every Saturday and Sunday.

But, the bias still persists.

Some of them, apparently including Gabby, have to arm-twist their parents into letting them compete.

a) it's expensive
b) it's dangerous
c) it takes most of their time
