Flag Pole Sitters and Flag Pole Sitting




I've always wondered why flag pole sitting hasn't made a comeback.  I blame lawyers.  No one wants a lawsuit, and I guess if you own the pole, you are responsible for who sits on it,  and thus who may fall.

The first flagpole sitter was Alvin "Shipwreck" Kelly.  HERE is the story of flagpole sitting on Wiki.
