memorial day memorial day

yeah, i got a bone to pick with waterloo. why they gotta hate? i’m sure most of you always thought that waterloo, ny was birthplace of memorial day. but you are very wrong my friends. so they have a nicer sign, big deal. those bastards are using false advertising, as the real birthplace of memorial day was established in boalsburg, pa, the quaint little town 15 minutes from state college, the birthplace of rhitard.

lets see what the copycats over at waterloo had to say about this little holiday…

The story of Memorial Day begins in the summer of 1865, when a prominent local druggist, Henry C. Welles, mentioned to some of his friends at a social gathering that while praising the living veterans of the Civil War it would be well to remember the patriotic dead by placing flowers on their graves.

yeah, i bet you got that idea from visiting pennsylvania you douchebag. everyone knows america starts here anyway.

The custom of decorating soldiers’ graves was begun here in October, 1964, by Emma Hunter, Sophie Keller, and Elizabeth Myers.

yeah, that’s what i thought. & the pennsylvania military museum totally owns you. they used to take us there on school trips & there was this one room where they had the wax soldier dudes engaged in warfare & the gun & cannon noises scared the crap out of me. i’d elaborate more on the kick ass-ness of the museum but i haven’t been there in ages & forget what it’s like. i’m pretty sure it’s cool though.

this is a tank:

this is not my favorite bestest friend tank in the whole wide world, abigail, but this is still a tank. abigail i love & miss you!!

so please tell all your friends that waterloo is a bad bad place & boalsburg is the real memorial day birthplace. i mean come on, this town has a steak house with a giant bull on the roof!

& while igor says “Boalsburg is a shithole of a town, never go there.” he lies. kinda.
