Happy 4th of July, America!

Happy Independence Day! Time for cake and presents --



Americans quite rightly rejoice in their origin story.


The Brits are still a bit sniffy about it, but they're putting on a brave face.

Happy 4th to our American neighbours. I like your greeting much better, Debra.

Sorry, we took Tom HIddleston too. We lured him away with the promise of riches in Hollywood, tainted his thoughts by teaching him an American accent when he played Hank Williams, and then we kept him thanks to the allure of Taylor Swiftian naked slappy times. He's ours now.

Making a cake with the American flag inside must have taken a lot of work. I bet a Brit did it. An American wouldn't put that much effort into something that couldn't be loaded with ammunition.

I think the U.S. and England are in a contest for the weirdest political year. The Brits are currently ahead, but we hold a Trump card.
