Fourth of July Groaners...

The difference between a duck and George Washington is: One has a bill on his face; the other has his face on a bill!

What kind of tea did the American colonists thirst for? Liberty!

What was the craziest battle of the Revolutionary War? The Battle of Bonkers Hill.

Why were the first Pennsylvania settlers like ants? Because they lived in colonies.

What's red, white, blue, and almost as ugly as a dog? A revolutionary warthog!

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


The Fourth of July weekend was approaching, and Miss Pelham, the nursery school teacher, took the opportunity to tell her class about patriotism. 'We live in a great country,' she announced. 'One of the things we should be happy is that, in this country, we are all free.'

Trevor, who was a little boy in her class, came walking up to her from the back of the room. He stood with his hands on his hips and said loudly, 'I'm not free. I'm four.'

Great posts, Patty. Love the 'groaners' and the flag one is so appropriate.

Hi Patty ~~ How cute that little boy, he's not free, he's four. I like it and also Paul Revere couldn't carry his horse. I hope your 4th July was a lovely day.
Thank you for the lovely fwds you send me. I enjoy them all. I have a favor to ask Patty --Do you still have the one about Maths that was so good. Rows of 11111s 2222s etc?
If you do would you please send it again as I lost it and thought it was so good. Sorry to be a nuisance. Take care, my dear friend, Love, Merle.
