Grandma Discovers Something About The 'USA' Shirt She's Been Wearing For 25 July 4th Celebrations

Grandma Discovers Something About The 'USA' Shirt She's Been Wearing For 25 July 4th Celebrations

Dressing up for special occasions is pretty great, and nothing says PATRIOTIC GET-UP better than rocking your red white and blue everything on the 4th of july.

T-shirts brandishing the old stars and stripes, cheap wayfarer knock-off sunglasses, blue shorts, red sneakers and a white top bedazzled with stars, everyone can rep the US flag. Heck, even if you’re from New York my guy, there’s a special USA item of clothing for you.

The iconic symbol of America’s flag is immediately recognizable, and no July 4th celebration would be complete without drowning in a glorious sea of red, white, and blue, accompanied by whatever cold cheap beer your friends managed to toss into a cooler.

The thing is, however, that the colors red, white, and blue are pretty common. There are tons of countries that have them on their flags. Look at France. Look at Britain. Stars, while not exactly a rarity, are a bit less common. So if you see stars, red, white, and blue on something, your mind automatically thinks ‘Murica.

That’s what Dale Cheesman’s grandma thought. She’s been repping the same fourth of July shirt for more than 25 years. Look at how adorable she is in it.

However, thanks to the 2018 World Cup and the participation of one team, Panama, Dale and his family discovered something about Grandma’s shirt.

She wasn’t repping Old Glory at all. Take a look at the Panamanian flag below, then back at Granny’s shirt.

That’s right, every July 4th for 25+ years, Grandma was actually proudly rocking Panama’s flag.

Something that Dale calls “25 years of treason.”

People loved Dale’s post.

And immediately replied by giving some Panama-approved Grandma nickname puns. 

Now here’s where it gets crazy, a proud citizen of Panama pointed out that he should tell his grandmother to rock the shirt on November 3rd, which is Panama’s Independence Day.

Dale’s birthday? November 3rd. BOOM.

Others wanted to know just how in the heck Grandma managed to keep a 25+ year shirt looking so darn nice.

People just wanted his grandma to come and visit Panama, probably on account of how well she wore that shirt.

Others didn’t find it so funny. This is July 4th after all, and Granny was sporting the wrong flag.

On the plus side, however, she at least was wearing a shirt for a country that qualified for the World Cup and even won it!

It was the World Cup of Flags on Twitter, but still, so what they lost 6-1 to England? They’ve got that distinction and an awesome Grandma who will hopefully uphold  the tradition come this July 4th.

Woman Complains That She's Allergic To Dogs On Flight, Gets Removed From Plane

Well Southwest airlines recently removed a passenger from its plane, but for an entirely different reason: because she said she was deathly allergic to dogs.

The trouble is, she allegedly didn’t have an allergy card to prove her claim. After speaking with law enforcement officers and refusing to leave the airline, she was forcefully removed.

CBS reported that the man who recorded the scuffle, Bill Dumas, said the officers “spent a long time talking to the woman” before finally removing her from the flight.

For the most part, people on Twitter are siding with the airline and/or the two dogs, one of which was a service animal, as the woman had allegedly complained about them and wanted them off the flight before she was eventually taken off the plane.

Others couldn’t believe that the folks at Southwest “picked” dogs over human beings.

Others don’t know why she resisted in the first place.

While others suggested that this was probably the best case scenario for the removed passenger.

Southwest released the following statement, explaining, “We are disheartened by the way this situation unfolded and the Customer’s removal by local law enforcement officers. We publicly offer our apologies to this Customer for her experience and we will be contacting her directly to address her concerns.”

What do you think? Was it excessive to take her off the plane?

This Blind Goat With Anxiety Is Only Calm When She's In Her Duck Onesie

Polly is a rescue goat who lives with Leanne Lauricella of Goats of Anarchy, a sanctuary that looks after goats with special needs. Polly has a laundry list of quirks, suffering from anxiety as well as blindness and neurological problems. 

One day, Leanne was shopping around Halloween-time and spotted a child’s duck costume. Since Polly is only calm when she’s wrapped in a blanket, she figured it might be an easier way to comfort her. It was.
