Who owns the national anthem? And is it unpatriotic to play it in a context in which it could be ridiculed?

BBC NEWS.

Thankfully, we don’t have national anthem-playing dunnys in this country. Or perhaps we do and don’t give a shit about the noises they make.

Hey, sue me! I don’t get these flashes of comedic brilliance very often.
