Fourth of July: No Wounds or Loss of Eyes! Success!

How many children are in this photo? Yes, they are all holding sparklers.

Here is Son and Son of Thirty-One (Nephew of Otter Butt). Adorable. And look, they love to light things on fire. They are Proud to Be Americans, where at least we can light things on fire once a year (twice if you live in Utah), and celebrate our love of all things explosive and flammable.

Note, of course, that no one got hurt, burned, or lost an eye. Success!

A dangerous day indeed. I can't believe we all survived. But man, look at those kids pose. You'd think they knew this would go public (see Middlebrow's treatise on son's blog prescience).

Now, see, if someone had written the song,

I'm proud to be an American,
Where at least I can light things on fire once a year, . . .

I could get behind that song.
