Talk about a funny day…

Comedy is the topic of the day, as we celebrate the birth of Groucho Marx (born in 1890) and the publication of the first Peanuts cartoon strip by Charles M. Schulz.

Even the day’s political news has a comedic air to it, as today is the anniversary of the 2008 vice presidential debate between Joe Biden and Sarah Palin. (Although I’d much rather see Groucho go head-to-head with Lucy from Peanuts.)

But he was so young back then

This doesn’t seem possible, but comedian Chevy Chase turns 65 today. Sixty-five years old. Only five away from the big seven-oh. It just doesn’t seem possible. He always looks so young on those classic Saturday Night Live DVDs!

A fascinating pair of birthdays

It’s always interesting to see who shares a birthday with you. Your might share your special day with a friend, fiend, felon, or flibbertigibbet. It’s part of what makes life more interesting.

As an example of this, today we wish happy birthday to an interesting pair of people — Senator John McCain turns 72 today, while pop singer Michael Jackson turns — brace yourself for this one — 50.

Wow. Just wow.

Lego celebrates 30 years of miniman magic

It’s the Lego miniman’s 30th birthday! To celebrate, Lego launched a blog and website dedicated to the past, present, and future of minimen (minimans? minipeople?) everywhere. The site opened on August 25.

Enjoy a really fun miniman-inspired take on great events in the last 30 years, see vintage photographs, and share your own creations.

(Let’s all hope that nobody submits “minimen gone wild”…)

Mother Teresa born in 1910

Today we celebrate Mother Teresea’s (born Agnes Gonxha Bojaxhiu) birthday. She was born this day in 1910, in Skopje, Macedonia.

I thought that today felt a little nicer for some reason!
