Speculations that the American flag has gay origins — OK, you’ll just have to read on

You pledge that allegiance, girlfriend!

It was reported Monday that there is new evidence to suggest that Betsy Ross’ design for the American flag comes from a shirt she made for her gay friend Nathaniel. Who knew? The article says:

“It’s amazing to think that Nathaniel unknowingly designed the most iconic flag in world history,” said Historical Society of Pennsylvania researcher Maxwell Derosiers, who found the journal in the pocket of a period cheetah-print waistcoat in the organization’s basement. “From the American flags that flew over Fort McHenry and Iwo Jima, to the one planted on the surface of the moon, every incarnation of the Stars and Stripes traces its roots to this one very gay article of clothing”

“And I mean really gay,” Derosiers added. “This was a sleeveless crop top.”

This new development was hilariously reported by The Onion.

Grammys Live Blog: Gaga spotting, Jeff Bridges appears as subtle Oscar campaign

I kinda miss the dreds but Maxwell is still some kinda sexy. He and Roberta Flack ask where is the love and it sure ain’t in her wig.

Lady Gaga is wearing Superman’s Fortress of Solitude on her head.

Jeff Bridges honors Les Paul and intros Jeff Beck. Beck with Imelda May is a major precious moment.

25 minutes to go.
