Don't Tread on My Cactus!

The Official Seal of The United Mexican States

Have you ever seen a more violent emblem or seal of an officially recognized country?

A golden eagle killing a rattlesnake on a cactus. Um, ouch?

Interestingly, a favorite symbol of the American people is the rattlesnake.

How would they like it if we came up with a flag that shows a rattlesnake strangling a golden eagle?

Hey, rattlers are tough, it could happen...

  1. Any bird that wants to kill a 'nake is okay by me, regardless of nationality.

    Sorry all over the place. Am I fired?
