Spry stole my flag!

He put a circle over my star, put more stars around it and cut away the right side... he thought I would never spot it, but I did.

Gimme back mah flag!

That would be called a pennant flag of Ohio.
This is the flag American troops carried up San Juan hill in 1901 when the Irish attacked Puerto Rico.

I say we invade Ohio, kick some Ohio's 4th Infantry butt (starting with the descendants of Alfonzo B. CoiT) and get our flag back!

yeah, but isn't 90% of your population 75+ and from Ohio in the first place? They say Florida is a Northern state.

Hey, I thought we decided Ohio doesn't exist. How can you invade a place that doesn't exist?!

I am pretty sure that beer would be even worse for me than YooHoo. Anyways, don't you have a one-man Puerto Rican Repopulation Invasion to fend off right now?

He only wants to pro-create and over populate Florida and from what I see it needs some youth.

But quite a few of the original settlements in Ohio were started by Virginians. So then Virginia can claim both Ohio and Florida.

That's fine, I just want my flag back. Virginians can ally with us and get most of Ohio's territory to plant more tobacco. The Toledo strip goes to Michigan tho, they wanted that for a long time.

That's fine, I have a howitzer. I can take chip from a distance.

It is possible that Chip would switch to the Puerto Rican side.

Ruben,you mentioned previously that because of some silly government clerical error that returning to Puerto Rico is not possible at this time.
Create your own tropical flag,use a banana with 2 grapes with a white background,and call your area "Rubenation".
During the winter months I could serve as your ambassador at large.

Rube likey this diplomatic route. Ohio is too cold anyways, Michigan still sucks and Virginia causes lung cancer. We would have to make a few changes tho. The banana can cause people to mistake Rubenation with a GAP store (bananarepublic). A giant Yuca would be more suiting. And since Rube is exiled in Florida, lets replace the grapes with oranges and we have a deal.
