Happy 4th of July!
Yes, today's the day we celebrate America's removal from our (then) Empire. Britons everywhere are revelling in Socially Acceptable Racism (it's the Americans and the French; anything else is out of bounds) and swapping stories of war-related retardation and Massive Weapons of Destruction.
On a slightly more sensible note, it's somewhat worrying how many Americans ask Brits online if we celebrate today and Thanksgiving. Either they're stupid, or they're celebrating a holiday and they don't know why...
Also I saw a stand-up recently who commented on the irony of Britons complaining about Americans acting like they own the world. The trouble with that is that Britain did own the world.
