Nothing says Independence Day quite like exercising your freedom to go commando! Thanks to certain female celebrities who can’t keep their cha-cha’s away from paparazzi camera lenses, lots of women have developed a fear of going panty-free, since they’d like to keep their privates, well…private. But I’m here to tell you why you should consider saying goodbye to undies, if only just for the holiday (aside from the fact that it just sounds patriotic). It’s what our forefathers would have wanted… Keep reading »
For some stupid reason, I decided to start a nutrition cleanse this week, right before my friends hold their annual Fourth of July barbecue. To prevent me from regretting my decision to “get healthy,” I’ve decided to put together a list of red, white and blue, health-conscious and yummy foods in hopes that they’ll lure me away from the Coney Island Smothered Hot Dogs and toward the fruits and veggies. Consider these healthy alternatives for your Independence Day bash, because you don’t have to get the meat sweats to eat patriotically. ‘MERICA! Fuck. Yeah.
It’s the 4th of July weekend, which means approximately 90 percent of the population will be attending a BBQ in the next few days. We recently got to talking about how our pasts are riddled with epic BBQ fails. Getting drunk and passing out during a particularly heated round of Cranium. Knocking over the buffet while running from a yellow jacket. Hiding in the house because we don’t want to be seen in our swimsuit. You name the tragic/mortifying/stupid BBQ mistake, chances are we’ve made it. In fact, if we were to co-write a memoir, a fitting title might be Poor Choices We’ve Made While Attending BBQs. But no more! This BBQ season, we’ve vowed to step up our game. The first step? We’re publicly promising not make the following BBQ blunders… Keep reading »
Somebody is getting pink slipped today! Somehow, all of the fireworks for San Diego’s Big Bay Boom 4th of July display were set off at once, resulting in 30 seconds of very, very intense fanfare. Whoops! See video above. [NYMag.com]
Humans aren’t the only species to get into the holiday spirit. Check out these animals — festooned with ridiculous hats and outfits — doing their best to get into the 4th of July festivities.

This July 4th, celebrate our nation’s birth not just by watching fireworks, but by setting off some of your own. Don’t just eat BBQ, play hide the sausage. OK, these double entendres are played out. We know it. We’ ll just come right out and say it: Whatever your plans may be this holiday, assert your (sexual) Independence by making time for a good ‘ol outdoor romp. The holiday requires it. Just don’t get caught. Unless you’re into that kind of thing. After the jump, our suggestions … Keep reading »
I’m proud to be an American, especially today, when I heard this utterly tone deaf 10-year-old in a zesty sequin American flag vest butcher the lyrics to “Proud To Be An American.” With patriotic hand gestures. He filmed his medley for a Dallas cable access channel in a tribute after 9/11. God bless you, Tyler Busby. See you on “American Idol.” [VideoGum]
