It’s the fourth of July! Here! So happy Independence Day, America!
I originally wanted to make a thing out of this idea. The notion was that here, in Australia, where it’s the fourth of July about 14 hours before it is in America, I would ‘celebrate’ the event, until the 5th, then mock Americans for celebrating afterwards. The joke was going to be about how obnoxious it was to act like what’s going on around you in an immediate sense is the only thing that matters in an international medium.
While I like the joke at its core, my twitter timeline is too full of real despondence and depression to really throw out a joke that has any kind of meanspiritedness to it at all. Certainly not in 140 characters.
Back to the dad jokes and the puns I guess!
