Heya Zia Comics fans, Lil Deadpool here. As you can tell I’m ready for the 4th.
Some of you may be asking “Wait Deadpool, aren’t you a burka wearing, cold loving, Canadian ay?” Yes, yes I am. But, how can one not celebrate the actions of oppressed farmers and settlers, fighting the superior force of a world power, bent on occupying all of the known world, that’s right, the Brits.
Out numbered, out gunned, with little training, early colonists held off the most powerful force in their time. A bunch of farmers, militia men, settlers banded together under one man, George Washington. (Mr. Iron Jaw wooden teeth himself. Jeez… I mean the guy crossed the Delaware on Christmas morn and stomped a ton of sleeping British troops. How can you not follow that guy?)
Well a bunch of podunk Americans gained their independence. The price? Blood, tears, and the possibility of death. Today, we remember what your country has done, take some pride. Be an American today, cause your forefathers earned it, and you have the horror of trying to live up to them. (Sniff sniff) Gotta love an underdog, I know I do. Today I’m an American.
