This great land is 235 years old today. Happy Independence day, USA!
I woke up rather glad that today was going to be another free and relaxing day for me. After a while, I turned on the television to see and hear patriotic preachments and songs. The US national anthem is a beautiful song especially if you listen to a great delivery of the song. Indeed, in the past, I had already assembled a few performances from some popular names. If you scour Youtube some more, you will undoubtedly come across other excellent renditions of the Star Spangled Banner.
However, I am in a light-hearted mood as of the moment—of course this does not mean that I had not already affected the right amount of staid gravity when the national anthem was being delivered. But I was driven, if I may be so bold to say, to search Youtube precisely for those scenarios where a song of such supreme import to Americans was royally mangled in a crass bumbling manner. Yes for laughs–and why not? Today seems as good a day as any to watch people make a total fool of themselves to the utter consternation of a horrified public.
