We gotta laugh or we’ll cry. (And then cry anyway.)
Hello, fellow Americans! We all love our country — rah-rah, go Cowboys, apple pie, etc. — but if we’re being honest, a lot of things aren’t all that great here. Being an American right now is sort of like being a fan of The Office the last couple seasons…you want to still believe in it, but Michael Scott is gone, James Spader is there for some reason, and Jim and Pam aren’t much fun anymore.
But you know what? Since it is OUR country, we’re allowed to call out our issues and laugh/cry at them in a “it’s funny and sad” kind of way. It’s kind of like that thing where you can call your little brother a lazy, annoying punk, but if anyone outside your family says the same thing, well, them’s fighting words.
So, to be clear, this post is just for Americans. If you’re from one of those countries with free healthcare or…what is it called again? Oh yeah, paid parental leave…well, you gotta get outta here! This isn’t for you!
Only Americans left? OK, good. Here are a bunch of hilariously sad jokes about our lot right now:

OK, I think he left. Let’s continue, shall we?
IS THAT FRENCH DUDE STILL HERE?
