    Might have been funnier if he’d said 1799. And if you’re declaring independence from a monarchy, do you really want to be making a Prince reference?

    I don’t get it. 1766 was before 1776 so that seems illogical in terms of the Prince song. Why not 1799? Would that make it TOO derivative? Oh well there are other days and other comics so happy 4th of July.

    It’s 1776 so he’s going back 10 years.

    Wasn’t it a tea party that started the whole thing to begin with?

    1766? Off by 10 years.

    “We The People” is the start of the preamble to the Constitution. The Declaration begins: “When in the course of human events…”

    What an indictment of our “best in the world” educational system. Thanks for the correction.

    Stonehenge -

    You are correct about the preamble, etc., sir; however, had I tried to fit “when in the course…”, I doubt many readers would have fully made the connection. Hence, I used ‘artistic license,’ which is rampant in this stupid cartoon. I was educated once, but not well.

    And thanks for reading this misquoted cartoon!

    You don’t say? Wow, it’s almost like it was an actual historical reference… to a Prince song. Thanks for taking the time to look it up.

    And thanks for reading this taxing cartoon!

    I thought about something like that, but the problem was how would people in 1776 know what 1799 would have been like? What if they lost… mmmm…. might not have been a party. I supposed I could have used 1699, but then did Puritans really party?

    Again, thanks for reading this poorly referenced cartoon!

    Yes… and see below for 1766 reference. Full circle, my amphibious friend.

    And thanks for reading this party pooping cartoon!
