^Haha I wish, unfortunately I'm not rich.

 

In the end I chose 'dear Matt' as I wrote in a casual and hopefully funny style. Come on Damon, send me back a two sentence letter ??

^Can you mouse over them? They should be titled.

If not,

the left one is an overlay/combination of the Irish flag and the Scottish flag, to represent my Scotch-Irish heritage, and the right one is the flag of South Vietnam, to represent my Vietnamese heritage

Maaatttttt Dammoonnnn for sure. Imitating a zombie (or the voice over guy for the SNL intro) is sure to win you style points.

Also, bumble bees are very,,, good

Step 1: Find flags on the internet
Step 2: Download flags
Step 3: Make them tiny – if your phone or computer won't do this you can use https://imageresizer.com/

*Please do not have GIANT FLAGS that cover half your post in your signature. Mine are about 10-15 pixels tall
Step 4: Upload to signature

Step 5 (optional, HTML posting only): Change the titles. The image title should show up when you mouse over the image and it says "unnamed.jpg" or, if you're sophisticated like me, "AMEEEERRICCCAAAAA" a-hard-days-night-george-10
Step 6 (optional): Brag about your nice new flags and invite people to scratch their heads saying "what are they?" instead of mousing over them/reverse image searching/generally being nosy

*remembers Matt Damon in The Talented Mr. Ripley and cries because I was scarred by the ending scene and the whole movie was very stressful overall but at the same time amazing* 

 

Oh and I also added a few new thingamabobs to my sig:

In addition to my "Julia " quote and "Life in Wartime" quote I got a lil' American flag (which was there for little bit before), a little pup holding the bisexual flag (because I'm proud of being gay or smth and also I thought it was cute bc doggo!!!!!!!!) and she/her pronoun button thingy (to just establish that I am, in fact, a ~~lady~~ or smth idk they just look neat and pretty and sort of give my sig purpose ig) 

 

Also I would put heritage flags but like my heritage is extensive and just a lot of white people so unless they make a combined Italian-Scottish-Hungarian-Welsh-Polish flag then......a-hard-days-night-paul-10a-hard-days-night-paul-10

Yeah, I'm sure I was simplifying a bit – just the main ones, the recent surnames are Scottish and Irish but there's quite possibly English/Welsh/American Indian in there as well.

Lol does anyone remember when I put Walry's badge in my signature last April Fools day and accidentally left it enormous overnight?

I bet if I hadn't done that we wouldn't have been found out so quick... then again, I suppose it was inevitable, Bee Gee is too clever ??
