When I tell audiences where I'm from every night, I tell them that the University of North Carolina is the only state university in the United States to have graduated a class in the 18th century. American audiences nod and look at each other, impressed. Some of them get out their phones to verify this amazing fact.

 

When I use that line in Europe, they laugh out loud. What a funny guy this folk singer is! So nice that he can make fun of his own country.

 

This tree is older than America. There are CLAMS older than America. Give us a break. We were all young and idealistic once. You grow up and one day you yell at your kids for doing all the dumb things you did. Pull your pants up. Get a haircut. Don't play with fireworks- you'll put an eye out.

 

Oh whatever. Go have fun. Be careful!

 

I love you.

 

Happy birthday, kid.
