Strip by: Luke99

Jon: I have come to the conclusion that ONE useless man is called a disgrace, that TWO are called a lawfirm, and that three or more become a congress! And by God I have had this congress! For ten years, King George and his parliament have gull, cullied and diddled these colonies with the illegal taxes! Stamp Act, Townshend Acts, Sugar Acts, TEA Acts! And when we dared stand up like men, they have stopped our trade, seized our ships, blockaded our ports, burned our towns and spilled our blood! And still this congress refuses to grant any of my proposals on independence, even so much as the courtesy of open debate! Good God, what in the hell are you waiting for?!
The delegates of Pennsylvania, South Carolina and North Carolina (respectfully yielding to South Carolina): Sit down, Jon! Sit down, Jon! For God's sake, Jon, SIT DOWN!!!
Someone off panel, probably Maryland: Will somebody open up a window?

The author writes:

Good God consider yourselves fortunate you have Jon Arbuckle to abuse, for no sane man would tolerate it!
