1. And Earth is the best planet in the world…

By those standards, you’re not wrong!

2. Endangered bald parrots.

Yo, that parrot is creepy AF! Why is it on that flag???

3. What to do without spell check!

If you’ve left your parents’ house and pay your own bills then this holiday is for you!

4. Remember…

Facebook status screenshot "Happy 4th of July everyone... remember, the confederates weren't fighting amongst themselves in the civil war. Were were some Union supported who were disgusted at the thought of slavery. Although it took us a while to be fully welcomed into the American society, we are here and free nonetheless."via pophangover

Shortly thereafter, Odysseus and Jesus signed the Treaty of Versailles, and that is why we celebrate today!

5. No comment.

Franklin discovered electricity by rubbing two cats backwards and declared, "A horse divided against itself cannot stand."via Pinterest

If only we could form a contented congress again. Those were magical times, but unfortunately, those virgin singers are still dead.

6. President “Imeges” on the dollar bill.

You see kids, sometimes Google doesn’t work!

7. Hmm…

You’ve come a long way! A lot longer than we originally thought!

8. Math is important.

The extra eleven is for good luck!

9. Intelligent idea…

facebook status: "im startin to think tht if the heats this bad every yr around 4th of july they shld prolly change the date so ppl can light off fireworks with out worryin about startin a fire"via Facebook

And I need the next day off to nurse my hangover! It should always be a Saturday!

10. Keep it real C-money!

11. Someone fell asleep in American History class…

Wrong imperialist nation Tanner! Not a bad guess though.

12. Not false.

test question: "Where was the American Declaration of Independence signed?" Answer: "At the bottom."via Pinterest


13. And I hate Mondays so…

Facebook status: "Is 4th of July being celebrated in the 3rd or 4th this year? Cuz the 4th is a Monday..."via carbonated.tv

Then it must be the 3rd!

14. Free taxi rides and dangerous tea, yup…

homework assignment answer: "one of the causes of the revolutionary war was the english put tacks in their tea. Also, the colonists would send their parcels through the post without stamps. Finally the colonists won the war and no longer had to pay for taxis."via Pinterest

I would start a war too if people put tacks in my tea! That’s messed up! And if I got free taxi rides out of it, win-win!

15. Faith in the future of humanity = 0

facebook status: "The 4th of july on the 16th or the 15th???"via carbonated.tv
