Good Morning, Everyone!        🇺🇸 HAPPY BIRTHDAY, AMERICA!🇺🇸

🎶Baby you’re a FIREWORK…Come on let your colors BURST…Make ’em go “Oh, oh, oh!”..As you SHOOT across the sky-y-y… You just gotta IGNITE  the light…And let it shine…Just own the night…Like the FOURTH OF JULY…🎶 –  “Firework” – Katy Perry 2010

💥 Today’s the day we celebrate America’s Birthday,
And more than FORTY states have made it legal to display,
All kinds of Fireworks, the ones for private use I mean…
Although for sure tonight they’ll all be heard and all be seen.
In some states there’s a KIOSK, you can shop and get your fill,
In other states like NY, it’s illegal but bought still…
A rocket like a WEASEL, explosives just like snakes.
And streets are in an UPROAR… til the cops get there and take…
And then your money’s up in smoke, and you feel like a jerk…
Illegal is illegal…Stick to Macy’s FIRE WORKS!💥

FORTY? Can it be? I searched and searched…to no avail…No FORTY did I see! Once more, what can I say? Is it new? It sure looks that way…but just like a NUMBER of our other recent words that seem to be BURSTING upon the scene…I just don’t get it! FORTY acres and a mule? FORTY and Fabulous? FORTY winks? How’d FORTY manage to avoid detection all this time? Well, I guess it’s NUMBER’S up, because here it is today…Our other three? KIOSK last stood up on 04/28/17, WEASEL snuck in quite recently on 03/03/19, and UPROAR last shouted out to us on 11/18/18. And while it didn’t cause an UPROAR this morning, it did stump 2 of the Early Birds. Ok…FIRED UP, Folks? No..not yet? Hmm…Well maybe our cartoon will LIGHT some FIRE under us all…

Today we’re seeing a typical American scene…4th of July outdoors at night. The grills may have cooled, but the Fireworks displays are just heating up…We find our two characters, ROCKY and SHELLy about to start the night off with a BANG. Looking to LIGHT their “Red, White and Boom!!! canister, which is really black with gold lettering, Rocky finds that his small lighter has run out of fuel. But Shelly comes to the rescue. Holding a wand candle lighter, he’s like..”Here, BIC mine”…and he’s ready to inFUSE with his help. So with the FLAME aglow, he’s about to set FIRE to the FUSE in Rocky’s hand. And good thing he doesn’t have a SHORT FUSE! …So in answer to our question…When it comes to LIGHTING the fuses? …FIRE WORKS! WHEEL, WHEEL…Good one. David! A BANG-up job!

Eye candy? A few blackened silhouetted figures at back. It looks to be a man and a woman, seated with their son and pig-tailed daughter, and another male standing, shielding his ears from the noise. Rocky, long haired with a soul patch, is clad in cut-off jeans, a black T-shirt depicting an white eagle, a red cap depicting a star, and black sandals. And Shelly sports a white American Flag Tee, black shorts, a red visor, and blue sandals. But the STAR of this show has to the huge Pyrotechnic Canister sitting safely on a red brick platform…It’s a BLAST! So, There you have it Folks…Done! Have a great day, Everyone! …And keep in mind…It’s your PYROgative to shoot off FIREWORKS…just be safe. Nobody needs to go out with a BANG…💥🙋🏻

And for those who’d rather sit home and watch the show...Pyro Spectaculars and Macy’s are hard at work making this year’s 4th of July FIREWORKS extravaganza come to life…Check it out…

Wishing Everyone a safe and 💥 HAPPY INDEPENDENCE DAY! Enjoy! 💥
🎶Come On Baby, Light My Fire🎶.  – The Doors” 1967

And may 🇺🇸 GOD BLESS AMERICA! 🇺🇸 Today and every day!

  1. I thought I’d BANG this out betore I catch some sleep…💥🙋🏻

    ° His decision to buy the KIOSK caused an UPROAR with his wife, since not only did she think he was a WEASEL for purchasing it behind her back, but when she found out that it cost FORTY thousand dollars, the FIREWORKS really started!

    ° Behind the jewelry KIOSK, they thought they’d keep their lunch,
    But whoever thought a WEASEL would get in there and munch?
    His presence caused an UPROAR, with FORTY minutes spent,
    Trying to capture him and fix the kiosk that got bent.
    They learned a lesson very well…no food or other perks,
    Belong where they are working, lest they’ll be more FIREWORKS!

  2. OMG! Angela – this is early even for me, I’m usually an hour behind. These last three days have been without what I whined about – long, composed, hyphenated puns in quotes. I can only hope the puzzlers, the hardcores, enjoyed them, as they are a bit easier than usual. I except some doozies soon!
    Have a great safe FOURTH!!!

    • Good Morning, Jamu. Time and I have a very strange relationship…🙄 And yes, once again we’ve been given a gift. The puzzle was as easy as they come. And I like your use of “doozies” . Have a great day…be safe! 💥🙋🏻

  3. The young lady working the KIOSK created an UPROAR when she tried to WEASEL FORTY dollars out of an old man.
    “Light My Fire” brings back fond memories from when that song out. Great song!

    • “WEASEL FORTY $ out of…” I think we may have a winner! Good Morning, Mike! Excellent! 👏🏻👏🏻 I never even thought to go that way! …And how did I know that you’d enjoy the Doors? Great song is right! Have a great day, Mike. Try to stay cool. I know you guys are getting hit with the heat…💥🙋🏻

  4. The WEASEL created quite an UPROAR when it was spotted near the temporary KIOSK at the FORTY yard line. Happy Fourth of July, all..

    • Good Morning, Chuck. 👏🏻👏🏻 The FORTY yard line! The creative juices are definitely flowing this morning! Bravo! I love it! Have a great day, Chuck! May the FOURTH be with you! 💥🙋🏻

  5. Good Morning Mike & Chuck! Hope your day today is fantastic. Let’s all go & open a fifth for the Fourth. We can all drink in this beautiful day & fire up our patriotism

  6. Thanks, Jamu. I’m a teetotaler myself, but I’m strong on the patriotism part. Don’t overdo..

  7. Saw this online, and it reflects my feelings…
    “We are the land of the free and the home of the brave.

    Let us pay tribute to our brave American heroes on this day and forever. Happy Independence Day!”

    “The 4th Of July is a great day for our country and I salute the people whose sacrifices have made this possible.”

    • …And I’ll definitely drink to that. There should be no end to the gratitude we show our Veterans. My flag is flying…Have a great day, Clay. Thanks for the beautiful words. 🇺🇸🙋🏻

  8. Apart from misspelling weasel at first,the anagrams were a snap and the ‘fire works’ solution a clever 4th of July treat.Have a safe and sane Fourth.On a related note,today would have been my mother in law’s 102nd birthday.She always said the whole country celebrated her birthday every year.

  9. Good Morning, Professor. Yes, easy, clever, and cute. A little Holiday treat. And I’m so with you on the safe and the sane. Let’s hope everyone enjoys themselves with moderation. And a prayer for your late Mother-in-law. 🙏🏻 Have a great day, Prof! 💥🙋🏻

  10. Good morning Angela, hope you have a great FOURTH! I’ve considered opening a fifth for the Fourth, but then I probably not remember it. Time & I are on good terms, it’s Newsweek that befuddles me, it’s turned into People though lately Time is following suit.

    • LOL! 👏🏻👏🏻 I hear ya! Stick to Sports Illustrated..never steers you wrong! Have a great Holiday! 🇺🇸🙋🏻

  11. Hi all – Everything easy today, with just little extra thought to get FIRE WORKS.

    Had to laugh at the fuse running right across the guy’s open-toed sandals. This whole cartoon could be a PSA on how *not* to light fireworks.

    Baseball trivia for today – The SF Giants aren’t playing. Except for a strike year, this is the first time they’ve gotten the 4th of July off since 1941.

    Have a great 4th, everyone!

    “Gonna sit back here, and watch this cloud roll by.
    The next time that you see me
    I should be shining like the Fourth of July” – James Taylor

    “The little WEASLE running the mall’s KIOSK caused an UPROAR when it was discovered that his FORTY dollar gold chains were counterfeit”.

    • Hey G…The Mets aren’t playing either. I guess MLB figured they’ve both been BANGed around enough already! 😂 But I wouldn’t worry about the fuse and his feet, he seems “LIGHT-footed” enough to step away. But it would be enLIGHTening for both of them to be wearing goggles, right? I guess it is a little TORCH and go,,,. $40 GOLD chains? LOL! 👏🏻👏🏻Send those buyers here…We got a bridge for sale! Go FOURTH, G! 🧨🧨🙋🏻

  12. S.I. is slowly becoming an “PG-13 Playboy”at least for some of the covers. Articles are becoming gossipy “Why Kevin Durant overthrew the three point try – the inside story” puhleeze.

    • Jamu…be assured, I’ve never read it for the pictures…so the PG-13 thing was never an issue! 😂 🙋🏻

  13. After rereading previous entry, my brothers are right, “Stop your whining, Jamu!” I promise to try.

  14. Happy 4th of July. The little WEASEL had a small hole in the side of the KIOSK where he was taking unauthorized pictures of women with bust sizes at FORTY and above. When the crowd found out about his dirty deeds there was a big UPROAR.

    • ROTFL! Huh? 👏🏻👏🏻 Where do I begin? Brooklyn, you have me dying here! I do believe you’re the Fire💥Cracker today! I’d say have a great day…but I have a feeling you already have been! Enjoy, Brooklyn! 💥🙋🏻

  15. Good evening. Wasn’t going to post today but since it’s fire works night I thought I’d give my own with the use of the words. Sitting here watching the Yankees because the horrible Mets are off tonight. Decided to avoid traffic and just relax at home. I got so bored that I decided to post. Can’t believe how quiet it is around here with the fireworks. I like it that way though. When I was a kid we sure made plenty of noise on the block. Back then the cops just took your fireworks. Now they might do more that that. Until tomorrow stay well.

    • Brooklyn, you know how it is with the Mets. They’re not for the faint of heart. It’s quiet on Staten Island too, but it’s early, and it’s still light out. Last night there was plenty of noise already…so I’m figuring tonight will be more of the same. Your sentence had me rolling! 👏🏻👏🏻You’re too funny! Anyway, I’m watching a little of the Yanks on my phone…at least somebody’s doing NY proud…⚾️🙋🏻
