Pictures of the Week; Coming to ‘Merica

Welcome to ‘Merica!

Charles C.W. Cooke became an American citizen last Friday. Welcome aboard. He talks about it here.

This morning, at 8 a.m., I did something I’ve wanted to do for as long as I can remember: I became an American.

I first applied for a visa in early 2011, and since then I have slowly worked my way through the system — first as a visa-holder, then as a permanent resident (green card), and, finally, as a citizen. It feels odd finally to be at this point. I decided that I wanted to be an American on my first visit here at age three. Sure, at that point it wasn’t quite clear to me whether there was an America outside of Walt Disney World. But on subsequent visits, of which there were many, I discovered that there really was, and that it was a giant, rambunctious, beautiful place. Since then, I’ve never wavered in my ambition to be of it

WierdDave at Ace’s offers some excellent advice.

If an American gal asks you to knock her up in the morning, it’s a hell of a lot more fun here than in the old country. But, by the same token, the natural assumptions Americans make when a British gal asks them if they have a rubber are wildly optimistic.

Cute!

Good answer from the Canucks though!

Alrighty, then

Danish is a sexual orientation? I thought it was a position.

Here, Hold my claret!

You had one job!

Yup, it’s that time

Have a good day.

    Since there’s a mass shootings cartoon (media/gas can/flames), here’s the sign on the door for one of Sheriff Israel’s training courses for personal safety for officers.
