We’ve never felt more proud to be an American.

Glee is creating an ogle-worthy, abs-tastic calendar for an upcoming Season 4 episode, and Ryder (Blake Jenner) gets the honor of posing as Mr. July.

Show creator Ryan Murphy tweeted a photo of Ryder’s abs-tastic calendar shot, writing, “Meet Mr July in our Men of McKinley calendar!” Blake immediately retweeted the photo, adding, “lol!!! Too funny!!!

If you ask us, there are plenty of things that make the Fourth of July worth celebrating: Democracy, personal freedoms, really tasty picnic food, and most importantly — the right to bare arms.
