Putting the GIF in TGIF!

Fridays are always animated 'round these parts. I HATE WHEN THIS HAPPENS:

AND BOOM GOES THE DYNAMITE: San Diego's 4th of July Fireworks show was absolutely the most talked about fireworks show of the holiday. For all the wrong reasons.  It looked something like this.

ECONOMIC REALITY OF THE DAY: It would seem that the times, they are a changin'.

FORMERLY USELESS ORGAN OF THE DAY: Time to rethink your appendix?

LADY GAGA WISHES SHE WAS THIS FABULOUS:

I THINK THEY'RE MISSING THE POINT: This is why more and more American's are turning away from organized religion. I could go on, but it wouldn't be pretty.

THEN THERE'S THIS: Radical religious extremism comes is never a good thing. Just take one look at the face pictured in that link. Yikes.

WTF OF THE DAY: This right here, as my most excellent friend says, is something. No really, it's just crazy. It makes Mr. thenanigans appreciate his corporate overlords just a little bit. I SAID A LITTLE BIT.

SURF'S UP:

JUST A REMINDER: Despite the fact that the banking industry is paying millions of dollars to our congress-critters to run amok, they really can not be trusted. At all. Mr. thenanigans is still wondering why none of the bankers responsible for the economic collapse of 08 have been prosecuted. I thought corporations were people. Why aren't some of them in jail?

HIGGS WHAT? There's a whole ton of talk about Higgs Boson. What is it? Start here. Then head on over here. And if you're still scratching your noggin, here's your last link.

EXHUMATION OF THE DAY: New evidence suggests Yasser Arafat may have been poisoned.

THE PARTY:

THE CONTINUING ZOMBIE APOCALYPSE: This is officially a thing now.

'MURICA: The 2nd Ammendment gives gun owners the right to start wild fires. Takeaway quote:

Clark Aposhian, chairman of the Utah Sports Shooting Council, said that perhaps 5 percent of the wildfires in the state have been caused by target shooters this year. “I don’t know how much of a problem it really is,” he said.

If gunfire starts one fire, it's a problem. You sir are an asshat. I can't even count how many homes have been lost to fires this season. The founding fathers had no idea that their words would be twisted in the ways they have been. We could use a little more common sense in the world.

THEN THERE'S THIS: When a candidate for President Of the United States has off-shore accounts for which to hide taxable income from Uncle Sam, that sends a rather sad message to the rest of us.

PUGSLEY'S PAL:

HISTORICAL DOCUMENT OF THE DAY: The "birth certificate of America."

CONSEQUENCES: Good luck getting food to your table.

BIOGRAPHY OF THE DAY: This guy must have been quite the character.
