@DarrenMarlar’s WEIRD HOLIDAYS – July 23, 2013

Today is HOT ENOUGH FOR YA? DAY. ***MARLAR: In other words, “I really have nothing to say to you, but I want to appear cordial.”

Today is REMEMBER TO FEED THE HUMMINGBIRDS DAY. Hang the feeder outside a window so the cat can watch.  ***MARLAR: At our house we call that “Kitty TV.”

It’s DIET COKE DAY.  The Coca-Cola Company introduced Diet Coke on this date in 1982. ***MARLAR: Which made me feel a lot better when I went out to get two Quarter Pounders with cheese and a hot apple pie.

This is ICE CREAM CONE DAY.  In 1904 Charles E. Menches of St. Louis invented the ice cream cone.  ***MARLAR: Before that you had to eat the ice cream as it was held in your hand and melted down your wrist.  Sounds sticky, but it kept you cool!

Today is NATIONAL VANILLA ICE CREAM DAY. ***MARLAR: I got a bit angry when I first saw this day, but I then I realized that I’d simply misread it.  At first, I thought it said today was “Vanilla Ice Day.”
