  1. You forgot to mention the institutionalized opression. It’s one of our most cherished national pasttimes!

  2. Happy Day off for Canada Day everyone!

  3. Having the 4th of July fall on a Wednesday is worse than cancer and the Holocaust combined.

  4. WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO except I am a wimp and plan to spend the week sitting in my refrigerator because heat, but still. WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

  5. That vest says that he’s “out” as well as “proud”.

  6. Maybe I haven’t been paying attention, but I don’t remember ‘In Between Two Ferns’ being this patriotic and bedazzled.

  7. Why are there only five stars on that vest? What year is this? 1773?
