Celebrating Revolution

232 years ago, the Declaration of Independence was signed and the world’s never been the same since. Revolution was declared in England’s then-North American colonies, which inspired other oppressed nations into action (not always successfully) and laid the foundation for the current United States of America. July 4th is celebrated annually in the United States as Independence Day — often by blowing stuff up, drinking copious amounts of aluminum-canned beverages, and grilling various types of livestock under a sweltering summer sun.

Enjoy it — safely!

Our resident "Bob" (pictured here through the lens of photographer Jason DeFillippo) is in love with a woman who talks to animals. He has a fondness for belting out songs about seafaring and whiskey (arguably inappropriate in most social situations). He's arm-wrestled robots and won. He was born in a lighthouse on the storm-tossed shores of an island that has since been washed away and forgotten, so he's technically a citizen of nowhere. He's never killed in anger. He once underwent therapy for having an alien in his face, but he assures us that he's now feeling "much better." Fogarty also claims that he was once marooned along a tiny archipelago and survived for months using only his wits and a machete, but we find that a little hard to believe.
