In My Neighborhood, It’s Fourth Of July Every Month Of The Year

If you grew up or live in a neighborhood like mine — I’m from Inglewood “Up To No Good” California — you know 4th of July fireworks aren’t just a one-weekend thing.

Fireworks go off YEAR-ROUND. Some people get annoyed by it, others are so used to it that they stop noticing it.

K, lemme know if any of this sounds familiar:

Throughout the year, you’ll hear random “booms” on your block. If you’ve got a friend from a different city visiting, they’ll probably react like this:

And you have to assure them that they are fireworks, not gunshots (although you’re not always completely sure).

Other times, you’ll see random flashes briefly light up the sky.


If you live with a dog, it probably looks like this after someone sets off some fireworks:

Things really get lit (sorry, I had to) when these fireworks booths open up.

And, of course, all the pyros in your neighborhood will stock up with a year’s worth of fireworks.

Whenever they get bored, you know those fireworks are coming out.

Then when 4th of July actually hits, here’s what goes down. Once it gets dark, it seems like every driveway on your block looks like this:

Your dog hates everyone in your neighborhood.


If you attempt to drive anywhere while the fireworks are going off, this is what you see:


Good luck seeing anything three feet in front of you.

In your head, the whole scene probably looks something like this:

It’s so dark and dreary that you feel like you’re in a Zak Snyder movie.

Once it’s all over, this is what your driveway looks like — even if you didn’t set any off:

Apparently, every driveway is fair game on the fourth.

And the next day, things go back to “normal,” which can be summed up like this:

Salma Hayek Explains Why Women Like Her Can’t Run When They’re Naked


Massages are great, right? Get those kinks all worked out at the hands of a professional. Unfortunately for Salma Hayek, some masseuses like to work out their kinks when they’re giving massages. Hayek recently sat down with Chelsea Handler to talk about the time she received a massage from an Austrian man in her hotel room. Did I forget to mention he was naked? Well, he was, and for Hayek that was a definite problem, especially considering that he had questionable grooming habits.

Handler said she would have run away if she were in that situation, but Hayek made the point that she couldn’t run because she was mostly naked and when women like her run, “it’s very visual. There’s a lot going on” while alluding to her ample, well, chest. Things worked out for the best, however, and Hayek was able to turn lemons into lemonade. Check out the clip for the full, hilarious story.
