***THE OFFICIAL FRIDAY SILLINESS THREAD***

Posted on 07/03/2014 5:31:34 AM PDT by Lucky9teen

Happy Independence Day FReeper FRiends!!!

I am posting this on Thursday so we can have some silliness before the Holiday weekend.
 
Today is the anniversary of the day America broke up with England
 

To celebrate, I found a little song someone wrote on Tumblr:

Cuz if you liked it then you shouldn’t have put your rules on it

If you liked it then you shouldn’t have put that tax on it

Don’t be mad once you see our freedom hit

If you liked it then you shouldn’t have badly governed it

Wo oh oh, oh oh oh oh oh oh, oh oh oh, wo oh oh



 

"When you're born, you get a ticket to the freak show. When you're born in America, you get a front row seat." -George Carlin

"If our Founding Fathers wanted us to care about the rest of the world, they wouldn't have declared their independence from it." -Stephen Colbert

"It is by the goodness of God that in our country we have those three unspeakably precious things: freedom of speech, freedom of conscience, and the prudence never to practice either of them." -Mark Twain

America is a vast conspiracy to make you happy. – John Updike

"Ninety eight percent of the adults in this country are decent, hardworking, honest Americans. It's the other lousy two percent that get all the publicity. But then, we elected them." -Lily Tomlin

America is a country that doesn't know where it is going but is determined to set a speed record getting there. – Laurence J. Peter

America is the best half-educated country in the world. – Nicholas M. Butler

In America, anyone can become President. That’s the problem. – George Carlin

It was decided almost two hundred years ago that English should be the language spoken in the United States. It is not known, however, why this decision has not been carried out. – George Mikes

Maybe every other American movie shouldn't be based on a comic book. Other countries will think Americans live in an infantile fantasy land where reality is whatever we say it is and every problem can be solved with violence. – Bill Maher

Ninety-eight per cent of American homes have TV sets - which means the people in the other two per cent have to generate their own sex and violence. – Franklin P. Jones

"If you buy your July 4 supplies at Walmart, you can celebrate on independence from Britain and dependence on China at the same time." -Andy Borowitz

"Happy 4th of July! As you take this day to honor America, ask yourself, "Why am I not honoring America on the other 364 days? Shame on me." -Stephen Colbert

"Dear America, Happy Independence day.& thanks for running the world since we retired. (China wants the job but hang in there.) Luv England." -Ricky Gervais

"On July 4 we celebrate government of the people, by the people, and for the people, or as they are now called, corporations." -Andy Borowitz


"Happy 4th of July, although I don't support celebrating a bunch of rebels defeating an empire." -Darth Vader

"Tomorrow let's not forget the whole reason behind July 4th. We left England so we could blow our fingers off w/ fireworks! #Freedom" -Steve Agee

The growth of the United States from 1780 to now.
It’s amazing how much of it was organized in only 238 years
And how it's being "fundamentally transformed" disorganized, in a lot less than that...


It occurs to me, that if EVERY ONE on my ping list, contributed their silliness to the thread...this thing would explode into 100's of posts, instead of just a 100.... #justsayin'

Not silly - just a bit nasty;)

Human Resources Manager: “What is your greatest weakness?”

Older Man : “My honesty.”

Human Resources Manager: “I don’t think honesty is necessarily a weakness.”

Older Man : “I don’t really give a shit what you think.”
