What Makes America Great

I spotted this today, upstairs in the cafeteria here at work, pinned to the community bulletin board. I guess you can post whatever you want on it, so long as it doesn't impinge on anyone's constitutional guarantee of liberty, freedom and the right to sell scented candles.

For those who can't see the image, the note reads "Freedom is what makes our country GREAT! Respect others — Don't cover up the signage —". I don't know what covering up someone's guitar lessons flyer has to do with freedom, but maybe in places like China or Cuba they don't have bulletin boards. Or if they do, you can only post stuff about Trotskyite healthcare rallies.

Okay, I'm off to the chili cook-off! Or, as I like to call it, Office Fart Day.
