It's the Fourth of July, there's no way we can't have a little Stan Freberg presents the United States of America. Here's a selection on Thomas Jefferson trying to pass the Declaration of Independence and coming upon a reticent Benjamin Franklin, ending with the song, "A Man Can't Be Too Careful What He Signs These Days."
(For those who might be of more recent vintage, the reference to "Every Saturday evening, I have to bring out the mag" is to the Saturday Evening Post magazine. It had been founded in 1728 under the name , The Pennsylvania Gazette. Benjamin Franklin too it over the next year. With a short hiatus in 1800, the publication officially became the Saturday Evening Post in 1821. It's still published today, though no longer weekly.)
Okay, now back to the comedy.
Robert J. Elisberg is a political commentator, screenwriter, novelist, tech writer and also some other things that I just tend to keep forgetting.
