Teacher: True or False?  The Declaration of Independence was written in Philadelphia.
Student: False. It was written in ink.


Where was the Declaration of Independence signed?
On the bottom.


Why did the British soldiers wear red coats?
So they could hide in the tomatoes.


Why did Paul Revere ride from Boston to Lexington?

Because the horse was too heavy to carry.


What was General Washington’s favorite tree?
The infantry.


What happened as a result of the Stamp Act?
The Americans licked the British.

[It hurt to post that one]


What kind of tea did the American colonists thirst for?


What did King George think of the American colonists?
He thought they were revolting.


Where did the colonists’ dogs protest against England?
At the Boston Flea Party.


What do you call an American revolutionary who draws cartoons?
Yankee Doodler.


Father William, the old priest, made it a practice to visit the parish school one day a week. He walked into the 4th grade class, where the children were studying the states, and asked them how many states they could name. They came up with about 40 names.

Father William jokingly told them that in his day students knew the names of all the states. One lad raised his hand and said, Yes sir, but in those days there were only 13 states.


Happy Fourth of July to my American rebels readers!

    I loved the last one. Clever kid! Thanks for the Happy wishes for this holiday (but considering how much I love your country, I probably would have been a Tory). 🙂

    Happy Independence in Stockpot too. *smile

    We’ll never stop rebelling until we have all your Maltesers too!

      Oooh, there’s a line and I think you just crossed it. Prepare to be routed by a one woman army!

        Your comment gives me great pause. Perhaps I was a bit hasty owing to my patriotic fervor on this day. The thought of an armed and dangerous Tilly Bud storming ashore in defense of Brit chocolate lovers is quite sobering and one I don’t relish.

        Perhaps I should be satisfied with my independence and my cache of M & M’s and leave the Maltesers for the English populace to enjoy.

        Thanks for the timely intervention.

          No problem! I wouldn’t want to see any unnecessary conflict between our two nations. Tea is one thing, but chocolate? That’s a whole different ball game. 🙂

          You were this . close, Al…lucky for you Lance was holding me back 😀

    Joke 7413? Did you fall down a wormhole?

    Oh, silly me 😀


I welcome your comments but be warned: I'm menopausal and as likely to snarl as smile. Wine or Maltesers are an acceptable bribe; or a compliment about my youthful looks and cheery disposition will do in a pinch.
