Today is FAMILY DAY, a day to eat dinner with your children. (Actually, there was a study on this, and apparently having dinner with your kids five or more times a week dramatically decreases the chances of your teens getting involved with drugs and underage drinking!)
Today is SAVE A CHICKEN DAY. ***MARLAR: Why did the judge cross the road? To resuscitate the chicken! On this day in 1991, a fast-acting poultry judge saved a prize-winning chicken’s life at the Western Washington Fair. The hen almost drowned while being given a bath, but Judge Sherry Milligan gave it mouth-to-beak resuscitation.
According to the Incas, today is the SUN’S BIRTHDAY. ***MARLAR: The Incas didn’t say how old the sun is though – no one has found a way to approach it with the question without getting burned
Today is NATIONAL STUDENT DAY and NATIONAL PUNCH DAY. ***MARLAR: Not to be confused with “National Punch a Student Day” which is never placed on the calendar but is often fantasized about by substitute teachers.
Today is NATIONAL GIBBERISH DAY. ***MARLAR: Also known as the monthly meeting for the Darren Marlar Fan Club.
