The multiplying flags have become a recurring joke for political tragics and, according to The Guardian Australia, yesterday's "10-flagger" was an all-time high.

And in a pool somewhere in Hawaii, comedian Wil Anderson was watching. Apparently he was also drunk and ready to unleash a titanic stream of tweets from the comfort of his sun bed.
