I heard a guy describe the Boston Tea Party this way the other day: "It's when America got a bunch of bad tea." Yeah, that's why we were so outraged...because the British were giving us bad tea. Like Nathan Hale said, "Give me chamomile or give me death!"
I'd like to see this guy teach a whole class in American history: "The Lousiana Purchase...that's when Louisiana got a really good deal on a pair of shoes at Payless. The New Deal? That's when FDR started slashing prices on stereo equipment. Good ol' Crazy Freddie."
