Benjamin Franklin Says, “Join, or Die”!!!!

join or die

When did BJ Franky Franks become such a psychopath?????????

In what is being called the first 'death threat via newspaper' ‘political cartoon’ in America, BJ Franky Franks has published this freaky ass snake in the Pennsylvania Gazette. It is his way of urging the very fragmented British colonies to unite in order to kick French butt over control for America.

Note that Delaware and Georgia are NOT included in this cartoon. 

Threatening the American people AND dissing two colonies??? Tsk tsk. Didn’t mama teach you ANYTHING?

You can catch more flies with honey than with vinegar!!!!

court room, guilty bitches

Ouch! Delaware doesn’t mess around!!!!

A Swedish explorer living in Delaware, Marcus Jacobson, managed to convince some townsfolk to rebel against English authority so that the Swedes could rule the province. Of course, he was taken to court and found guilty in the first trial by jury in Delaware.

He is sentenced to a severe public whipping, branding on the FACE and chest with the letter “R” (for “Rogue”) and, finally, he will be sold to a plantation to become a slave.

We’ll make sure to do all of our illegal activity outside Delaware’s borders.
