Elon Musk Tweets Bless America
The multibillionaire Elon Musk tweeted "Bless America" and "Happy 4th to all!" His post features a younger image of himself beside a half-cut flag of America (presumably). Young and blonde Musk is someone the internet is not familiar with. Hence, one of the commenters was quick to point out that he resembles the Russian Politician Vladimir Putin.

Saturn Celebrates 4th of July
NASA 360 tweeted that Saturn is joining the celebration of the U.S. Independence Day. The distant planet sets off its Auroral fireworks, colored blue, in its northern hemisphere. The color is breathtakingly beautiful when compared to the planet's yellow-orangish color.
NASA made a photo sample of the phenomenon:
"You look like the Fourth of July! Makes me want a hot dog real bad!"
"You look like the Fourth of July! Makes me want a hot dog real bad!" or shortened to "You Look Like the Fourth of July" is a famous quote used in social media channels to celebrate Independence Day. Newsweek reported that these words were said by Paulette Parcelle character (played by actress Jennifer Coolidge) in the 2003 film "Legally Blonde 2: Red, White and Blonde."
The internet has different interpretations for the quote. Some had their babies transformed into the "hotdog" image.
Users from the Giphy and Gfycat websites take the interpretation a little too literally. They decided to paint the American Flag itself on their hands to advertise American Independence.
