Britain- Is that a pig?
U.S- yes, it looks like that.
Britain- But it's red and White! Can pig's really be in that collour?
U.S- Well, you have those collors on your flag. maybe it's your mom? XD
Britain- How dare you say so to your father! Or are you just so stubborn that you can't se that your own flag also have those collors?!
U.S- The hell di you just say to me?! How dare YOU bully the best flag of all time?! You know, these stars represent every country I have killed! Don't make me Count you too as one of them!
Britain- Whoulden't that make your flag "un-complete"?. Because, dear stubborn Child, that the stars on your flag whould be 51. That means you need 9 more stars to fill it out. And that whould only look redicolous, don't you agree? well, because then you have to change to a new flag!
U.S- Are you saying that I whoulden't have enough space on my flag to fit in 10 more stars?!
Britain- Yes, you can say so.
U.S- Well, I bet I can! I declare wa-
Canada- umm, can you stop yelling to eatch other over the sea pleace? It's hard to sleep..
U.S- oh,umm... sure Canada! Good night bro! * looking over to Britain* I'll be back.... Soon you will be one of my stars I bet you...
Britain- wow, "Pleace spare me". Good night or whatever.

And thus birthed the San Juan National Historical Park.
I really laugh when I try to imagine the Americans bringing out their cannons and the British their warships, yet both sides were throwing insults in an attempt to get the other fire first. Like, "I wanna shoot their stupid butt but i can't coz they're not firing yet. I'll call their mom a hay muncher and see if that'll work"

That's nothing. The British Empire invaded Tibet over a yak.
