GRAND RAPIDS and CHICAGO - The WGN Morning News in Chicago picked on the wrong city flag this week.

In a segment Wednesday morning, Larry Potash did a Larry's World piece on bad city flags around the world.  Some city in Norway ranked first...then came Grand Rapids for "Ms. Pacman with lipstick."  They also highlighted our flag in a tweet, along with Milwaukee's flag saying "your flag sucks."

Apparently, West Michigan has taken to Twitter and complained to WGN.  They issued a statement Thursday morning:

"The tweet was a poor choice of words. It was in reference to a satirical piece, which we often do on the WGN Morning News. We apologize, we did not mean to offend anyone."

We harbor no hard feelings to our WGN brethren and made our own response Thursday morning, which is in the video above.

And, we agree Milwaukee's flag is bad too.
