Hello Everybody. Free Choice Editor-In Chief Lee Houston, Junior here today.
Both Autumn the Puppy and the recently returned Waxy Dragon are both off for the holiday weekend, along with the rest of your favorite E-zine's staff, so I'm here alone this weekend.
It's lonely at the top. *sigh*
Anyway, tomorrow the United States of America celebrates its 235th year of independence, and our resident comedienne's have submitted some appropriately themed jokes to celebrate the occasion.
But I would like to kick things off with a quote from one of my favorite authors.

"We have three benefits in this country. The freedom of speech. The freedom of thought, and the wisdom never to use either."--Mark Twain (1835-1910)

Now on to the jokes.

What happened as a result of the Stamp Act?
The colonists licked the British during the American Revolution.

Why did Paul Revere ride his horse from Boston to Lexington?
Because the horse was too heavy to carry.

Which favorite son of Virginia wrote the Declaration of Independence?
Thomas Jeffer's son.

What did King George think of the American colonists?
He thought they were revolting.

Why were the early American settlers akin to ants?
Because they both lived in colonies.

What famous pig signed the Declaration of Independence?
John Hamhock.

Why did the British cross the Atlantic Ocean:?
To get to the other tide.

If April showers bring May flowers, what do May flowers bring?

Did you hear the joke about the Liberty Bell?
It wasn't funny. Nobody cracked up with laughter.

What was Thomas Jefferson's favorite dessert?

TRUE fact: When the time came to choose a national symbol, Benjamin Franklin wanted it to be the turkey!

Well, that's it for this weekend.
Have a good week and please be back here next weekend for more Sunday Funnies!-lthjr.
