Bunk, I say! This is Independence Day, Americans. Choose your own damn cocktail, that suits your own damn fancy. I will offer the suggestion that you might want to make sure your libation of choice be a cocktail (the national cuisine of America), and that you might want to lean toward one made with bourbon (our national spirit, and a creation of freedom-loving, tax-hating immigrants). Of course, if you want to celebrate with a Pegu, that creation of the British Empire, well I won’t stop you.
But today, I drink bourbon.
It is traditional on Independence Day to offer thirteen toasts to the Union, but I couldn’t find thirteen entertaining ones, and don’t have time to compose my own. Instead I present this two million hit video. It is stirring, beautiful, hilarious, and a bit crazed—Just like America.
