Uncle Sam, the personification of America, is posed with a hand salute, the oldest and highest form of respect and tradition.
But something is wrong - the stuffed doll is saluting with his left hand.
In the United States, salutes are done with the right hand.
A left hand salute is generally considered to be a highly offensive and disrespectful insult.
I could have easily flipped the image, but I think it provides a documentary glimpse of the true character of Lubbock, Texas.
