As Independence Day and its concomitant colorful explosions are upon us, it’s time to reflect upon the history of our nation and ask the important questions. For example, why are there so many songs about rainbows and what’s on the other side? Rainbows are visions, but only illusions, and rainbows have nothing to hide. So we’ve been told, and some choose to believe it. I know they’re wrong—wait and see.
Not to brag, but I'm like the only person on facebook who hasn't changed their profile picture to a rainbow.

Ok I'm against the Confederate Flag but I feel like an exception should be made for the General Lee, it was used to get away from cops

Fancy Bill probably calls his car the General Lee.

My style of parenting.

I’m not poolside at the moment, but there is beer and the assumption that my kids are okay. As a matter of fact, there goes one. I hope she’s going somewhere good.
I wonder if it was after the second or fifth drink that I lost my kid at the pool. Meh, they'll show up eventually.

This sensei is probably also good at falling into the pool.
Signs your sensei is not about that life: - unenthusiastic air kicks - half hearted karate chops - no ponytail

Maybe a roundhouse kick for good measure.

Science fact: the cantaloupe is a close relative to the antelope. Scientists believe a larval state was abandoned by the hoofed animals.

Have a safe and happy Independence Day, kids. Remember, if you avoid drunkenness and injury, you’re doing it wrong. Celebrate your love of your country by blowing up a small piece of it, and yourself. Until we meet again, so long as I can still trust you on July 5.
Anybody with eyebrows on the 5th of July is not to be trusted.
