Cul de Sac by Richard Thompson for June 28, 2015
Alice: What's all that stuff in your front yard, Dill? Dill: My brothers are building a float for the Fourth of July parade. Alice: A FLOAT? A FLOAT? Can I ride on it? Can I? Huh? Dill: The float's theme is "America the Awesomest- Our Nation's Beginnings." It's giving them some trouble... Alice: I'm good at waving at crowds for hours without stopping! So can I ride on it? Dill: They've figured out how to make a giant electric Benjamin Franklin, but not how to shoot King George III out of a cannon. But I'm sure they will.
