Friends up-north note our confusion with friends down-south ...

"You may have noticed that Chile — and its flag — have been in the news lately," blogger Gillian Grace writes in this post on the network. "You may also have noticed that the Chilean flag bears — with its red and white stripes and lone star in a field of blue — some resemblance to the flag of Texas. Which has red and white stripes. And a lone star. And a field of blue."

Apparently the similarity proved too close for elections officials in Atascosa County, Texas, "who sent out absentee ballot packages bearing the flag of a country far to the south of America’s second-largest state."

Oh, Canada! :-(
