I WANT A VOTE!
No... The flag is... Ah-mer-ica. America is... the plum. The peach. The wah-ter-mel-on. America is... the gumdrop. The pump-kin seed. America is... tell-ah-vision.
Now... The cross is... Mex-i-co. Mexico is... The wal-nut. The hazel-nut. The ay-corn. Mexico is... The rain-bow. The rain-bow is... wooden. Mexico is... woo-den.
