Serious suggestion: I understand Fark is based in the US, but all nations produce heroes. Perhaps the standard Hero tag is to be used for submissions, which modmins can then alter its background to the appropriate flag background. A lot of countries out there, but it'd be nice for our Canuck/Brit/Aussie/South Sammich Island/etc Farkers to see a little 'thank you' and show of appreciation for the exemplar of humanity their nation has produced. France's background can stay white.

/thank you Canada

Help me determine your credibility by telling me how many amphibious assaults you've participated in.

I personally shot Celine Dion into the Vegas reservoir. She's all yours now, Yanks.
