  1. I've always thought the most famous line from the Declaration of Independence is hilariously snarky.
  2. "We hold these truths to be self evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their creator with certain unalienable rights, that among these are Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of Happiness."
  3. It's funny right?
  4. Like the Jeffersonian equivalent of "duh, obv."
  5. Like, "George, man, I don't really need to explain this do I? I mean it is *self evident*."
  6. "Surely you understand this."
  7. "No?"
  8. "Ok, fine let me spell it out..."
  9. ...
  10. [long list of grievances with the king]
  11. Is it just me?
  12. Anyway.
  13. Happy Independence Day people.
