The United States of America turns 237 years old this July 4. That’s quite the milestone, and one for which we should all be grateful as we celebrate today.
A few other notables also share birthdays with the US of A, including …
Malia Obama, now 15. The eldest daughter of President Barack Obama, the first African-American to lead our country, she represents the American dream.
So, too, does The Situation, a man solely famous for … who knows anymore. Jersey Shore is a thing of the past, which is probably for the best.
You have to hand it to anyone who can turn big muscles, even bigger tolerance for alcohol and a uniquely absurd vocabulary into a career, though.
Only in America. And celebrating a birthday July 4. Along with …
- Geraldo Rivera (1943-)
- Bill Withers (1938-)
- Al Davis (1929-2011)
- George Steinbrenner (1930-2010)
- Ann Landers (1918-2002)
- Abigail Van Buren (1919-2013)
- Calvin Coolidge (1872-1933)
- Nathaniel Hawthorne (1804-1864)
Quite an eclectic group, which is just how it should be.
So put down that firework, raise your Budweiser and toast all of them – and the great country we all live, work and read celebrity gossip in – today.
U-S-A! U-S-A! U-S-A!
