The 4th Comes Early

My family does fireworks at everything. Birthdays, weddings, three day weekends, you name it. Here’s a video of us celebrating Baby Boy’s first birthday with a bang. If you can guess the state that permits the sale of these low grade weapons, you win a fondue pot I never opened from my wedding that has been sitting on Craigslist for many weeks. Employees, interns, frequent guest contributors and family members are ineligible for said fondue pot.

    I forgive the Chinese for Mao’s Cultural Revolution merely because their ingenuity made fireworks possible.

    I exercise great restraint in not divulging the glorious state of the union in which you speak.

    You can also buy them in Fl, but it is illegal to set them off unless you are “authorized.”

    Also South Carolina.

    LeMare–you of course knew that I would begin hyperventillating and cursing hysterically when I saw that you’d forgiven China. Please remember that it was the ingenuity you speak of that the Revolution was intended to stamp out. “Let a hundred flowers blossom,” did not mean, “Gentlemen, light your spinning fireworks!” It meant, “Think freely, please, so that our secret police can find you more easily.”

    spoken by a true “capitalist running dog,” joey.

    I think it is unfair that family members are exluded. I think for bonus points, we should guess which scream goes with which family member….

    I prefer, “Paper-Tiger Reactionary.”

    There will be fireworks for all when the revolution comes. Especially bottle rockets. Lots of bottle rockets.
