The Moron's Daily Briefing

Oct. 23 - According to James Ussher, the venerable 17th century Archbishop of Armagh, and to Dr John Lightfoot of Cambridge, it was at exactly 9:00 a.m. on the chilly autumn morning of October 23, 4004 BC, that God created the world.

If that's not enough to coax you into a party hat, consider that today is also Gummo Marx's birthday and National Aviation Day in Mexico.

Bottoms up!

For the record, it's also Revolution Day in Hungary and the birthday of Al Leiter (1965), "Weird" Al Yankovic (1959), Michael Crichton (1942), Pel (1940), and Johnny Carson (1925).
