One Texas man couldn't believe what he saw on the American flag he purchased at a Dollar Tree store in Dallas: 11 extra stars emblazoned on Old Glory.

"You can kind of see the stars are all crooked, and if you count them, they're actually 61 stars," Tim Childress told WFAA.com.

A "patriotic banner", not an American Flag. What kind of crap is that! That's ridiculous.

Makes perfect sense to me. It has one star for each State, plus a star for each US territory (Guam, Puerto Rico, Virgin Islands, and Mariana Islands), plus a star for each of the 7 imaginary Obama States. 50 + 4 + 7 = 61!

You'd be missing DC and American Samoa.

Still doesn't excuse the extra five though. Someone really goofed up.

how many Mexican states are there?



<edit> I just googled it...there are 31.....I thought it would have been quite a coincidence if there was 11....thought maybe someone would be trying to make a statement.
