When a site makes as many mistakes as Yahoo! Style does, it’s impossible to tell the difference between a hideous error and a deliberate attempt at humor or irony. Take this flag, for instance, which appeared on the site’s home page:
Maybe to someone living in China, it looks like an American flag. But to Americans, it looks like a horrible imitation with its 61 stars. All Americans know their flag has only 50 stars.
Did the person who chose that image know it was wrong? We’ll never know.
