    Humm! I don’t know as a resident and reasonable ol’ Baja rat, about having a chili pepper with the colors of the Mexican flag, nor would I feel right to see the American flag on a hot dog wiener. Xcuse me,I fear I am growing into an old bag with lots of air in my mind or something like that. Muchas garcias, saludos y tengan un lindo día…

      Thanks for your comment Juan. I see your point, however, according to the artist’s site the piece was done purely in an artistic, respectful, positive light. Thanks for reading!
