Today is Flitch Day*,
A man joined the priesthood. The order he joined could not speak for seven years. Then they could only say 2 words. The first seven years passed and they went into a small room. His 2 word were "too cold".
National Raspberry Cake Day,
Stick Out Your Tongue Day,
New Friends Day,
and Get to Know Your Neighbors Day.
* An old custom from yesteryear developed into the holiday of Flitch Day. Bacon was given to any married couple who could prove they had lived in harmony and fidelity for one year. Very few "took home the bacon".
Enjoy your holiday of choice today!
I'm sticking my tongue out!
Please excuse the interruption, but here’s a
PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT
reminding us to Choose Our Words Carefully!
The next seven years passed and they took him back into the small room and his 2 words were "bad food".
The next seven years passed they took him back into the small room and his 2 words were "I quit".
"Good," they said, "all you have done is complain."
