The Best Of The Rest: Why’d You Have To Go And Declare Independence Edition

Independence Day American Flag

The American Flag was created by a Brit. Probably.

Independence Day. Good film. Totally skyrocketed Will Smith’s career for one. Brent Spiner’s in it too, y’know. Hmm, I wonder what’s he up to these days? Oh yeah, it also marks some day when some bunch of colonials decided to break away from the Motherland and form some sort of democratic-country-thingy. Shame really. Imagine where America could’ve been now had it decided to stay within the United Kingdom. You’d all be sipping cups of tea from the finest china with your pinkies hanging in the air. But then I suppose we wouldn’t have had the film Independence Day. And that’s not a sacrifice worth making. Not in my book.

Here are your weekly links. Enjoy them well my pretties, for they’ll have to do you an another entire seven days…

    Ha ha great minds think alike.

    I posted in this very vein over at F13 where the thread turned into an argument about breakfast. Just think America, if you’d just had a little forbearance 234 years ago you’d have avoided those awful waffles!

    Yeah, but then we’d be driving on the wrong side of the road, and our horses would be running around in the wrong direction.

    On the other hand, we’d spell color correctly, hm?

    Some days I wish we just stayed a colony. At least we could blame someone else for our problems. Too funny post otherwise, thanks for the link!
