Photo Chop: 14th Edition
Thought America‘s explosion birthday would escape the Almighty Chop? Think again.
Let me explain… no there’s too much, let me sum up: I live in a cheap town that decided to save some money on its fireworks show by blowing shit up this weekend instead of last weekend. I get double the America days and the rest of you can suck it. So stop infringing on my freedom of patriotic hyperbolizing and let’s get to choppin’.
Congrats to our resident Based Tapir (or whatever he’s calling himself today) for winning the 13th Edition by accurately portraying his insane tapir-thoughts, brought on by a lifetime of living in the torturous natural beauty of Finland.
Let’s also congratulate Óðinn for meeting the challenge set forth last time and gracing the sausage fest with some ripe melons.
And now, let’s turn our attention to fireworks, something the US couldn’t get enough of last weekend, and my cheap town can’t get enough of this weekend. Don’t let anyone fill your head with that tired old nonsense that the Chinese developed gunpowder back in the pre-America 9th century days. I know the real story.
Fireworks were invented by Teddy Roosevelt in 18 aught 6 to fend off Canadian troops riding battle-bears into Montana. George Washington liked this strategy so fucking much he started shooting them into the sky to burn down entire forests of cherry trees, and that’s how Abraham Lincoln found his wooden teeth that freed the slaves and won WWII. To this day, we still jettison thousands of tons of explosive, sulfuric freedom bombs into the air on or around the 4th of July to celebrate our history and honor whatever bald eagles are still alive, even though they’re immortal and only take orders from Jesus.
