So today on a normal walk to Faneuil Hall, I ran into Honourable Artillery Company, as you do. Who are the Honourable Artillery Company? They are the second older military organization in the world who now also serve a more ceremonial function of playing at the opening of parliament in London.
OK, enough explaining. Let’s get to the jokes. There were British people in Boston performing under the statue of Samuel Adams, one hundred feet from where the Boston massacre actually occurred.
As a side note, more important than the function or history of the Honourable Artillery Company was the fact that they brought with them a large group of British guys with cut glass accents all wearing navy blue blazers.
It was with these gentlemen that I decided to roll out all of my jokes about them being here in Boston. All of them. So let’s go.
1. You realize the American Revolution started about 100 feet from here?
2. Are you here to take New Jersey?
3. You are performing under a statue of Samuel Adams, an American patriot?
4. Can you take Texas back as well while you are here?
5. So your boss is Queen Elizabeth. (I have no joke here).
6. The British are coming. Oh wait. They are already here.
And now the photos. Because why does anybody else come up here?:
