o Today is ODIE DAY, marking the birth of Odie the dog, Garfield’s best friend, who first appeared on the comic pages on this day in 1978. ***MARLAR: That makes him 31 years old today – or 217 in “dog years!” Wow… Odie looks great for his age, doesn’t he?
o Tonight is SNEAK SOME ZUCCHINI ONTO YOUR NEIGHBOR’S PORCH NIGHT, a night for gardeners who grew too much zucchini. ***MARLAR: Or take it to Dairy Queen and ask them to use it to make a frozen zucchini Blizzard!
o Today is ADMIT YOU’RE HAPPY DAY. ***MARLAR: Which you might be, if you open your front door tomorrow morning and discover a basket of zucchini. Assuming you LIKE zucchini. You probably WON’T be happy though if someone offers you a frozen zucchini Blizzard.
o Today is NATIONAL FROZEN CUSTARD DAY. ***MARLAR: They froze him? I figured they just buried General Custard like everyone else! (Oh, okay – I know that was a groaner.)
