Norwegian TV2's US flag burning could end up in jail time

This little gem of a story comes to us courtesy of Aftenposten (a Norwegian newspaper with English information).

It seems that in February, a TV2 comedian burned a US flag in the background of his monologue. Unfortunately for Mr. Jespersen, this appears to be an illegal act under paragraph 95 of Norway's criminal code, which forbids insulting a foreign flag.

Had he been in the US, he would have gotten away with a boycott, but in Norway, he might end up in jail for up to a year.
