TODAY’S WEIRD HOLIDAYS – July 10, 2009

Today is PAVEMENT DAY, marking completion of the first concrete-paved street on this date in 1892.  ***MARLAR: Two weeks later the very first orange barrels appeared.

 

Today is INTERNATIONAL TOWN CRIERS DAY.  ***MARLAR: There’s not a big need for criers anymore.  These were the guys who, in the middle of the night, would cry out “Two o’clock and all’s well… three o’clock and all’s well…”  That would never fly today; you wake people up every hour in the middle of the night to yell that all is well, and you won’t be all that well for all that long. 

Today is DON’T STEP ON A BEE DAY.  ***MARLAR: Maybe I’m just a wimp, but shouldn’t that be an everyday thing?  Do you know anyone who nonchalantly goes around stepping on bees thinking it’s a good idea?  Me neither. 

 

This is LET’S PLAY TENNIS WEEK.  ***MARLAR: Personally, I’d rather step on a bee.
