When the PR gods smile on you

So in case you haven't heard, a Fed Ex deliveryman became very famous all of a sudden when he took exception to some assholes who thought burning the American flag would be a good way to win friends and influence people.

Fed-Ex employee Matt Uhrin used a fire extinguisher from his truck to put out the flames and it made him an instant internet star, with most people applauding his actions. Apparently a few were not impressed, but it doesn't matter: Fed-Ex has reviewed the matter and Matt will be keeping his job.

My favorite part of the linked article - that a couple of the "protestors" are being charged with violating the local public burn ordinance. I hope they make them do time. If those flags had really flared up, they could have done some serious harm or damage. I'm pretty sure these pinheads didn't think that through.

All of which led to this popping up on my Twitter feed:

What a stud.
Because yeah, you can't buy publicity like this.
