Old 'Three Stooges' short:

"The Bonny Banks of Scotland.  But 'tis late, and the bonny banks are closed."

Then on to Wilmington airport, to prevent the landing of British Airways Concordes.

I can't hear 1776 again...

It's been ruined by the likes of Alex Jones.

It turns out when he doesn't have a script in front of him or bullet points to expand on, he isn't very creative.

THE Delaware, not actual Delaware.  He was crossing between NJ and PA.

They then had to go through a three week quarantine, then wait to the cross the Delaware, given the number of people traveling for the holidays.  Finally, because travel lets up on christmas day, they were able to get across very late that night.  The ice was so thick (mini Ice Age) you could walk on water at that point.


Fun fact:  one of the few places in Philly or Trenton that actually celebrates Guy Fawkes day and Bonfire Night is the little pub at the Crossing.

Even though they were outdoors, being on those crowded boats they should have been wearing masks like the Hessians were probably wearing. Since they were attacking soldiers from Germany, maybe Washington was actually leading an antifa group.

And soon thereafter would promptly get his ass kicked all over the northeast for the better part of a year.

I thought George Washington fought against having to wear masks.  You know, for our freedoms.

You've gotta fight
For your right
To die of COVID-19
