Forget about the dawn's early light, this Fourth of July is all about the rockets' red glare, the bombs bursting in air and maybe even a couple of spiders. Those are the ones that, well, look kind of like a spider, anyway.
For a professional singer, there are few gaffes more embarrassing than flubbing a line from 'The Star Spangled Banner.' (Are you listening, Christina Aguilera?) But when these pint-sized patriots get caught up on the lyrics, well, it's just flat-out adorable. The more mess-ups, the merrier.
American popular music has been around since before America even declared its independence. ‘Yankee Doodle,’ anyone? That classic was sung by Colonial American soldiers as early as The French and Indian War.
Since then, our country has established one of the richest musical traditions in the world. Many songs even deal with America itself, from ‘God Bless America’ to ‘God Bless the USA.’
Here’s a list of 10 to add to your Fourth of July playlist.
Have you ever seen an overweight horse? Of course you haven’t. Horses know how to stay in shape; it’s in their nature. Strange then, that with all the weight-loss programs and fad diets that have come and gone over the years, no one ever thought to create an exercise program based on horse fitness…until now. Enter Horsebic, a Finnish workout routine comprised of exercises like trotting, cantering and show jumping in the field. With 15 new lessons coming down the pike every six months, how could you not sign up?
When Aptos, California resident Peter Govaars went with his daughter to examine the the damage that a two-day storm had wrought on nearby Hidden Beach, he discovered the skeleton of a digital camera. It was beaten and battered by the ocean but, amazingly, the memory card was still intact. After opening and cleaning the card with rubbing alcohol to remove the salt and sand, Govars inserted it into his computer and found 104 photographs taken in nearby Santa Cruz during a two-week period in June of 2007. The images, he concluded, had just survived a possible and remarkable four years at sea.
If there’s one knock against Kool-Aid, it’s that it’s not fattening enough. Sure those sugars are going to turn into fat at some point, but what if you need a quicker fix? Who has time to sit around all day waiting for their metabolism to convert that excess glycogen to fatty acids? Enter deep-fried Kool-Aid, the newest oil-injected creation from the reigning king of fair food, “Chicken” Charlie Boghosian that’s a major web obsession right now.
The 90s are often thought of as the golden age of cheesy sitcoms. Shows like ’Family Matters’, ‘Wings’ and ‘Mad About You’ had a certain panache that was just so right for the time: the enthusiastic laugh track, the exaggerated physical comedy and the raspy sax rock theme song all came together in a comforting, consistent package.
Now, thanks to the power of editing, we’ve been given a glimpse at what ‘The Office’ might have looked like had it come out during that prime time (pun intended) for sitcoms. Check out the video below:
What makes a truly hideous tie? Is it the color? The shape? The presence of marine life? The truth is, there’s no one answer, which is why we’ve given you 10. It doesn’t matter how you knot it, ties don’t get much worse than this.
Check out 10 ties to avoid buying for Father’s Day.
