Happy Fourth of July!



I've been trying to come up with a good Independence Day-themed post. (Maybe some juicy gossip about the Founding Fathers or instructions for making your own fireworks.) But I'm afraid it's a pretty dull holiday. (Unlike Thanksgiving--I've got some great dirt on that day.)

Don't believe me? Check out these so-called "fascinating facts" about the fourth. Yawn.

So instead of dropping some science on you, I've decided to offer a few recommendations for spending your holiday:

Play a game of Alka Seltzer tag. Why didn't I think of that?

Eat an Octodog. What do you do with the bun?

Avoid severe stomach discomfort. Check the expiration date on the mayonnaise.

Practice putting chickens to sleep. (See below.)

I'll be back to the blog this weekend!

Nope. There's no ghostwriter. Are you looking for a job? ;)

That chicken thingy is very odd. If I had a chicken, maybe I'd experiment. Unfortunately, chickens and swimming pools don't go together, so no chickens for me. =(

The chicken thingy is weird. I'm just worried that what they did actually bothered the chicken. I'm really into animals,except rats!;)I hope the poor little chicken didn't suffer in any pain.

Just a little nap, I'm sure. The chicken probably needed a rest.

Have you ever heard of the Nathan's famous hotdog eating contest? It's in New york every
4th of July? That is an interesting 4th of July event!

(sorry I think I misspeled a lot of words!)

Yep. Gluttony at its best. You know, this year an American won for the first time in quite a few years. (The same Japanese guy has won the past 6 years.) I love Japan, but it's nice to have the title back in the USA again!
