What does this have to do with the 4th of July, you ask? Well, almost nothing, unless you consider that, in the Land of the Free, a grown man can choose to put on a pair of bedazzled, be-rhinestoned, Beef Jerky lace-up manties--"Brief Jerky" for short, and no one can do a damn thing about it. Oh, people may shun him, laugh in his face, anything short of a wedgie (too tough). But he'll continue to play badminton and whatever else he wants to. It's America.
