Red beans and white toast on a pale blue plate don't understand that they sorta remind the person about to eat them with a plastic spoon of a washed-out American flag. They just think they're there to do what they were created to do, which is to provide a little nourishment to whomever plunked down 49 cents for the can of beans and $1.89 for the loaf of Wonder bread at the local strip mall "job lot". They're grateful to do their humble yet noble part, but that whole patriotism thing, if explained to them, would fall on deaf ears.
