The 4th of July is upon us, and everyone’s ready to celebrate with a good old-fashioned barbecue. So, it’s time to fire up that grill, cook some hot dogs, burger patties, and some corn on the cob and get this party started. This is a wonderful day where we all get to celebrate Independence Day. And if you find yourself struggling to pass the time between downing those hot dogs and throwing fireworks at night sky, we’ve got some of the funniest jokes for you and your loved ones to laugh at.
Sadly, it probably makes sense to a couple of people out there. Obviously, the only people celebrating American Independence Day are folks living in the United States. But it’s just a regular day for everyone else.
Oh, wait! That’s right. That’s Will Smith and Jeff Goldblum from “Independence Day.” No. Not the actual day but the movie. Admittedly, it was a great movie, so we thank the actors for their service anyway and for keeping the planet safe from aliens.
Well, not really! Maybe your neighbors couldn't afford to splurge on fireworks, (and we get it! They're literally burning money!) But by the end of the day, you wind up playing around with a pack of sparklers and let your inner child have their moment by trying to spell your name with the smoke they release.
Everyone likes filming fireworks because they’re awesome unless you lose a digit while lighting them. And then they post the videos on social media to wow everyone. But it’s not like we’ve never seen fireworks before. In fact, we were probably standing next to you.
We’re sure there’s someone in the group who’s bound to make a fool of themselves. You certainly don’t want to deprive the rest of the world of some hilarious footage of someone doing nutty things because they drank too much.
Ruffles potato chips aren’t everyone’s favorite, but for some reason, people love touching the ridges. But on the 4th, folks treat that bowl of Ruffles potato chips like it's kryptonite. Maybe it’s because of the blue cheese dip that’s been left in the sun for hours.
So, it’s important to have a healthy circle of friends, even if they are all a bunch of dogs who think marking fire hydrants is cool. It’s too bad that dogs tend to freak out when the fireworks start bursting in the air.
You can't wait till the 4th rolls around so you can fill your stomach with grilled delicacies and beer, peach cobbler, apple pie, and ice cream, and any other sugary treat you lay eyes on. Then, you finish off the day by hating yourself overeating so much while watching a badass fireworks show. Ahh! Freedom!
You've got that one uncle who should've had their last beer an hour ago. Aunt Cindy can't keep herself from asking why you haven't found a husband yet. But all you want to do is munch on a bag of Lays while you lay on the grass, waiting for the meat to cook.
It sounds silly to stand over a fire in the summer, especially, when your A/C home is just a few feet away. But hey! We’re celebrating freedom and independence, which means we can do anything we want.
But the British were obviously not very happy about it because, well, the original 13 colonies used to be theirs. But as this meme points out, once Thomas Jefferson declared it, the Brits had no choice but to eat crow.
So, if you’re not American or have never been to America, then this Twitter post pretty much sums up everything you can expect from a typical Independence Day barbecue. It pretty much describes one of the reasons why Americans look forward to this holiday.
Like every other country in the world, America deserves to celebrate its Independence Day, and Americans are some of the most patriotic people on the planet. So, if you prefer a subtle celebration, then you should stir clear from this guy.
And apparently, George Washington is Santa. Just don’t forget that while hot dogs stay warm in the hot summer heat, the 105-degree heat from the sun will probably make the milk disgusting. If that’s the case, you can forget about that Big Mac.
Did you know that our beloved pets run the risk of getting lost on the 4th of July more so than any other day of the year? So all joking aside, make sure to keep your pets locked in the house. Ask your vet about what you can do to soothe keep them calm and safe.
