America is a '57 Chevy
that veers to the left
and lurches to the right
America is a pawn shop window
with decals of Old Glory
made by children in China
America is a dog playing poker
saying, "War is a last resort,"
and wagging his tail
America is a compassionate conservative
and a gay Republican
and a vegetarian vampire
America is that Norman Rockwell
of the family on Thanksgiving
hung on the wall of an Indian casino
America is a big group therapy session
with one guy in the corner
who will not shut up
God bless the firefighter
God bless the video clerk
And God bless America...
It just might work
Just might work
America is a Japanese fiddler
in Branson Missouri
doing Louie Armstrong
America is a scholarly discussion
of the socioeconomic implications
of Janet Jackson's boob
God bless the superhero
God bless the no-account jerk
And God bless America...
What if a guy came up to you and said, "I'm gonna bring forth on this continent a new nation, conceived in liberty, and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal."
You'd probably say, "Right on! Good luck with that!"
And what if he said, "I'm gonna form a more perfect Union, establish justice, insure domestic tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general welfare, and secure the blessings of liberty to ourselves and our posterity."
You'd probably say, "Wow! Knock yourself out!"
And what if he said, "Ask not what your country can do for you, ask what you can do for your country."
You'd probably say, "I got a meeting."
America is a conspiracy of genius
In sweat-stained waistcoats
And powered wigs
America is a homeless Jesus
being held at gun point
by King James
America is an apple pie
with a few bad apples
right toward the top
America is a dream of freedom
Dreamed by everyone
All over the world
God bless the normal people
And the ones with every known quirk
And God bless America...
It just might work
America, it just might work
Keep working...
And, it just might work

Babelsalat has particularly liked this photo

One could almost be thankful for such huge annoyances, since they're the reason that this kind of humour was born.
