This is sad - The Glacier Republic may be a worthwhile cause, but why are they forming a "national team"? Why don't I just get together a collection of people who have a preference for feeding their dogs with biscuits and call it the Dog Biscuit Republic? The flag would be a picture of a golden dog biscuit on a silver background, to symbolise the wealth of the new nation. Political/popular causes are now becoming conflated with ethnic groups/national teams, and there really is no limit to who and (maybe what) can form a team. How about a collection of football-playing robots? Nonsense.

Wouldn't 'mechanical' technically be some kind of an ethnicity group smiley: wink? Besides, you're just setting it up for an easy tap-in here, which I will score with the efficiency of some of the players in this clip:

Yes, finally a cause worth fighting for.   Mabel has already been working towards this moment for some time.
