The “Colbert Report” host has a novel method for getting rid of unserviceable U.S. flags… Watch it:

Partial transcript:

Colbert: I did a little research, and it turns out that the proper way to dispose of an American flag is to burn it.

At least that’s what the freedom haters over at the American Legion would have you believe…

Sorry, Legionnaires, but destroying America is not a veteran’s benefit. Burning the flag is wrong, always.

That’s why when it comes to these flags, I am doing the opposite: I am having them cryogenically frozen. That way they will live forever. Long may they wave above Walt Disney and Ted Williams’ heads.
