Chief, we need to add another shift."

"Zealots burning more American flags?"

"No, chief. Chinese burning Japanese flags."

"How are our Union Jacks holding out?"

"Running low, chief. We might as well start kicking out more Union Jacks, Canadian, French, and German flags, too."

"German flags. For Hollywood or for the zealots?"

"Both, chief."

"How about Soviet hammer and sickle flags?"

"Not much demand, chief."

"Are we selling any Chicom flags?"

"Zero on your last, chief. The Chinese have a corner on Chicom flags."

"How about Buddhist flags?"

"Buddhists make their own, chief."

"How about anarchist black flags."

"Anarchist make their own, chief."

"How about Maggie's drawers for the Marines?"

"Just shipped off a pant load, chief."

"What's a pant load?"

"A quip, chief."

"Are we good with Polish flags?"

"We ran short, chief."

"How are we dealing with that?"

"I turned some Indonesian flags upside down and marked the as 'Polish,' chief."

"Genius!..Any screw ups to report."

"I was hoping you wouldn't ask...We sent some Irish flags to Italy by mistake and some Italian flags to Ireland by mistake."

"Dammmmn...what the hell happened?"

"Nothing, chief. They never noticed the difference."

"I'm promoting your ass to research and development."

"Thanks, but no thanks, chief."

"What's up?"

"I just sign on to an executive position with a flag factory in Shenzen."
