4th of July
SETH: Hey everyone. Happy 4th of July weekend. Stop motion artist PES is so great. I love just about everything he has done. Enjoy these fireworks and facts.
Since 1916, Nathan’s Hot Dog Eating Contest in Coney Island, Brooklyn, New York City supposedly started as a way to settle a dispute among four immigrants as to who was the most patriotic. Last year, Joey Chestnut upset long time champ Takeru Kobayashi in overtime, downing 59 hot dogs in 10 minuets. GO AMERICA! I think this comes on TV on ESPN at 12:00 pm on the 4th of July. Check it out, its so awesome. I once ate 8 slices of pizza. I felt funny afterwards. You should be careful how much you eat. It could make your tummy very angry. Can you imagine what a champion hot dog eater’s stomach is like after a contest? I think it would be like a bubble bath of grease and meat. Mmmm…that sounds good. I think I will go take on of those now. Some Enya, a hot dog bubble bath, a jug of orange juice. Happy birthday America, indeed!
$128,000,000 = The value of fireworks imported from China, representing the bulk of all U.S. fireworks imports ($135.6 million) in 2002. U.S. exports of fireworks, by comparison, amounted to $13.5 million, with Germany purchasing more than any other single country ($5.0 million). Go America? I mean, I guess it is good we are throwing China the change, seeing as how the invented fireworks and all. China invented fireworks and ninjas. How awesome is that? All the US invented was boy bands and obesity. I really love this country. I really, really, really do.
Lastly, don’t do anything stupid over the weekend (Warning: This video has language that some might consider offensive, because the dude sets his pants on fire):
Hulk Hogan is America.
Happy July 4th everyone. Enjoy some hot dogs, shoot some fireworks, and wave that Red, White and Blue. I wanted to post “I just wanna dance with somebody” by Whitney Houston, but I feel this video is more appropriate. Go USA.
