It’s Independence Day here in the US, so here are some patriotic kid photos for you.
“Wait a minute,” you say, “That featured image doesn’t have any flags or fireworks or gilled meat products! How is that patriotic?”
“Ah,” I reply,”It was taken at the American Museum of Natural History in NYC last weekend.” Game. Set. Match.
Here are a couple of other pictures from that visit:
And since I’ve already had to bite back a couple of “Oh, go fuck yourself” responses to political tweets, I’m going to give the Internet a miss for the rest of the day, and spend the holiday as the Founding Fathers would’ve wanted: taking the kids to see animatronic dinosaurs at the local science museum.
“Wait,” you say, because for the purposes of this post, you are a tiresome pedant. “They didn’t know anything about dinosaurs in 1776. It was the 1830’s before the first dinosaur species were described.”
“Oh, please,” I reply. “Do you seriously think that Thomas Jefferson and Benjamin Franklin would pass up a chance to see freakin’ robots? At a science museum? They would’ve been all over that shit. And you don’t get more patriotic than Franklin and Jefferson…”
And just as a bonus, here are two more kid pictures where you can actually see their faces.
And a bonus seasonally appropriate music video:
Have a great day, whether it involves robotic dinosaurs or not.
