I hope you all had a memorable and relaxing 4th of July. Nothing beats delicious food, delightful company, and cheap explosions. Sadly, America’s birthday fell on a Thursday this year. So for those of you currently stuck at work on a Friday, I feel your pain. Considering the weekend is nearing, wouldn’t it be un-American to not continue our country’s birthday bash?

In my bored and slightly hungover state, I decided to create a fun little game I call the “Fifth of July Challenge.”

Do you have what it takes to prove your patriotism?

If you can accomplish at least one of these feats this coming weekend, then I tip my feather cap to you (figuratively):

The 5th of July Challenge

  • All food consumed must be barbequed.
  • Only drink liquor made in the US. (Have you met my friend, Mr. Jack D?)
  • Only watch movies in which America is on the brink of collapse and prevails. (Examples include terrorist-takeover movies, anything with Bruce Willis, and Independence Day.)
  • Proudly wear an outfit consisting of only red, white, and blue. (Extra points if you incorporate stars.)
  • Take advantage of the post-4th of July fireworks sales (i.e. Buy 1, get 7 free) and have a blast, literally.

 

What are some other fun and unique ways to take your patriotism past the 4th?
