Me either. The boat right next to me, flies one 24/7. I don't insist, nor suggest, he remove it. I do think it's lame.
The classic defense from those that do not find it lame, is to try to make more of the objection than there really is.
So, for giggles, I looked up the official definition of lame. In this context, it is "unconvincingly feeble". Two different sources.
Let's start with feeble... that is defined, again in this context, as "lacking strength of character". However, lame is qualified as doing so "unconvincingly". Hilarious.
I would say that flying a pirate flag is unconvincingly displaying a lack of strength of character. Confusing, makes no sense, wondering why one would try to make such a statement? IOW, one is trying to say they lack character, when they don't? Exactly. Lame.
