this year i deliberately took a dogsitting job to get out of going to my stepmom's for the 4th of july. why the antisocial move?
well, everyone in my family just has to eat hot dogs, brats, and/or murderburgers on the united states' birthday. an odd and ironic ritual, as the animals on their plates never really had a chance at an "independence day" that they so diligently (and ignorantly) celebrate.
even better is getting drunk and playing with fireworks afterwards (sadly, i'm being serious - it's a common practice). yep, we americans have surely evolved since 1776. so in honor of celebrating the freedoms that most other countries also have, let's brag about it by eating death, getting drunk, and blowing crap up! yeehaw! this one's for you, america *raises glass (or beer can)* you stay classy now.
