Independence Day post redux

I am so uncultured. How was I to know that the Penn & Teller video I linked to yesterday had roots in popular television. Here, apparently, is the origin of the act.



You gotta love it...

Never saw that, but yeah, GOOD post and a good video! Happy Independence Day (belatedly)!

Reminds me of some of the arguments I had in the American Legion Hall.

My father died, my mother served, I served, my son served to protect the freedom symbolized by the flag. Which, abhorrent as it is to me, includes the right to burn the flag.

I carry the American flag in my heart. You can never burn my flag.

Howdy jeg, I thought we'd lost ya...

Yes, I took a few photos, but not a bunch. Hard to aim a camera while riding, and riding was more fun than stopping. I'll post a few.
