I don’t know why, but I find that man endearing. It’s probably his birthday, he is chubby, they gave him a burger, he is happy. It’s all very endearing, I hope he has a happy life.
I was thinking the exact same thing. That picture put a huge grin on my face and I can’t figure out exactly why.
A grown man, smiling in a very humane way, because people wish him well. They know him, they game him something, not just a burger, but a moment of his life he will not forget.
I was thinking the exact same thing. He looks happy, he’s probably surrounded by friends and having a great time. I found myself happy for him.
trolling, rolling, bounding, bouncing across Europe, people often ask me what it means to be an American. I tell’em it’s triumph. Triumph. Triumph when we nuke our enemies. Triumph when when peer down from the moon and laugh heartily at Russia. Triumph when we depose one dictator after another. Triumph when we break into the homes of terrorist kingpins on the other side of Earth and shoot them in the face. Triumph when whe use flying robots to bomb other terrorists in Afghanistan, and other nuclear robots to explore Mars. Triumph when we free Europe from nazis. Triumph. Triumph. Triumph But it’s not just the the big things, see? It’s the way an Italian cabbie sits up straight and floors the gas when he hears my accent. It’s seeing the wide eyes and bead of sweat running down the forehead of a German customs agent when he opens my passport. It’s the way a French waiter hangs his head when I refuse the wine and ask for Coke instead, in English knowing full well he understands me. The way an Aussie blushes and leans into the urinal next to me in the bathroom, or the scowl that meets my smirk when I tip an English waiter in US dollars covered with Washington’s face. The way small mobs of Canadian school children follow me from a distance to see what a free man looks like, or how heads timidly rise and women gather when my accent stops the music in the clubs Amsterdam. Triumph. Every bit of it, triumph. Thats what it means to be an American
Thats what it means to be an American Fantasy vs reality
Anyone notice the look of total confidence on his face? He’s like, “Back up dudes, shit is about to go down.”
“Hold my beer, check this out.”
I’m incredibly hungry right now, and that looks absolutely delicious.
The real question is, do they deliver?
