This fake Trump 2020 MAGA flash-paper covered flag, when lit, burns bright orange into Biden's name.

       i think the plan is to bake your idea but with city blocks instead of flash-paper

       I'd check for copyright issues if you film it. That may have been an effect from the Terminator franchise.

       I don't understand whether using this flag would signal support for Biden (burn Trum and replace with Biden) or Trump (Normal-looking Trump flag demonstrates concealed demonic burning aspect to Biden's candidature).   

       Maybe that doesn't matter, its the shouting that counts?

       To confuse people this flag should be like a Matryoshka doll of combustibility. So, burning your enemy's flag will reveal your flag. Burning it a bit more reveals your enemy's flag again. Burning it even more reveals your flag, and so on...

       Sorry 8th, supercritical masses and their compression gadgets do not pack well inside flags.

       //a Matryoshka doll of combustibility ... Guy Fawkes// actually a Matryoshka doll version of the 'guy' (or ritualised effigy of the Pope, if you live in Lewes) that you burn on top of the 5th November bonfire would be a really interesting idea, every ten minutes or so burning off another layer and revealing a new identity.

       We are now thinking more in terms of a Matryoshka Wicker Man, where successive outer layers burn away each revealing a different helpless, screaming victim ...   

       Actually, we might post that. Hmmm ... but in what category ? Politics ? Entertainment ? We are open to suggestions.   

       Ahh, no problem. <link>
