Among other things today is also International Hummus Day.


The New York Times' On This Day for today.


A Florida man was hospitalized after a rattlesnake bit him on the tongue when he attempted to kiss it.

-Jon Schwarz

"At Trump University, they didn't give commencement speeches, they gave depositions."
-Variously attributed

"America voted for a roller coaster, so buckle up, people. We're only ten feet up the clicky part."
-Jordan Klepper, "The Daily Show"


We're late and abbreviated again today, a victim of recalcitrant software. See you Monday.
