Happy 4th Of July!

Roughly translated:

Most Americans love their native country. Nevertheless, on the 4th of July, they are particularly patriotic and get their flags from their basements. 232 years ago today, the 2nd Continental Congress of the 13 British Colonies in North America met. They adopted the Declaration of Independence of the United States. The main author was Thomas Jefferson, who later became the 3rd President of the USA.

Plus, dudes...it's, like, the day we all began speaking American instead of English. Have a nice barbecue, drink a few cold beverages, and enjoy the fireworks.

God bless America!

greg - Right back at'cha!

christina - We do NOT have an American flag. I brought this up with Mrs. TBF, and she thought it was best not to advertise.

It's a sad world we live in.

leesa - Congratulations on the Frenglish. I'm pretty good at the Finnglish. King speaks Fuckofflish.

It's proud day - the day we started speaking American.

After I briefly introduce myself in English people usually look at me with a certain look in their eyes: you're not from around these parts?

Can't be British with that dreadfully delightful drawl of mine.
