In heraldry, a sraight-sided 'star' is termed a 'mullet'. To be a star, it has to have wavy sides. A mullet being the wheel, for some curious reason unpierced, of a spur-rowel. Does this apply also to vexillology? Should the 'Stars and Stripes' for example, be the 'Bars and Mullets'?

Simeon, Hmm. ‘Vexillology’ – I thought that was the study of being a pain in the ass! (<:) But I like it ‘The Mullet Spangled Banner.’ However, there is a downside – ‘Bars and Mullets’ could be easily confused with pubs and funny hairdos!

Not to mention how Dubya's hapless warriors overseas would henceforth be announcing themselves to the lucky locals via the twin theme of mullets waving in one hand and bullets blazing from the other.
