AMERICA! F*** YEAH! It’s the fourth of July, so a happy day of independence to all our American pals over the land of the free! The original Brexit is most likely off to a fine start as you read this, and I’m somewhat jealous. While I’ll love my South African homeland until the day I die, being proud of my nation is an entirely different story. Maybe it’s all the badness that my ancestors engaged in until a few short decades ago, rampant corruption or the fact that our president can get away with eating living children and still be in office.

Whatever it is, I don’t have that same mania and pride in this country that the Yanks do for their beloved homeland. Although I’m hopeful that maybe one day in the future, I will. Happy Independence Day America! Now go shoot some alien motherships down already.
