The vexing thing about flags. July 3, 2012

Our friend Ben is really vexed. And, in honor of the upcoming Fourth of July holiday, I’d like to share the source of my vexation with all of you: I just discovered that apparently the correct term for a person who studies flags and their history is a vexillologist. Mind you, that might be okay if the term referred to a person who studied particularly irritating people. Such as, say, those who refer to themselves as vexillologists instead of flag historians.
