Friday Fun Facts – This Day in History

Hello, my friends. <—That’s my John McCain impression. I had a bunch of food stuffed in my cheeks when I said that too.  Ah, June 25th. Much like yesterday, I got nothin’.  So let’s just take a look at stuff that has happened on June 25th throughout history, shall we?

-Last year, Michael Jackson died. He made Thriller, man. Thriller.

-In 1876, George Armstrong Custer was killed. To quote Wikipedia, “He wore his hair in long ringlets liberally sprinkled with cinnamon-scented hair oil.”  I couldn’t have said it better myself.

-In 1947, The Diary of Anne Frank was published.

-In 1966, Dikembe Mutombo, full name Dikembe Mutombo Mpolondo Mukamba Jean-Jacques Wamutombo, was born.  I’m sure he’s still out there somewhere wavin’ that big ol’ finger.

-Busy Philipps was born on this day in 1979. I like saying that. Busy Philipps. Busy Philipps. Busy Philipps.

-Farrah Fawcett also died on this day last year.

-Apparently it’s National Catfish Day here in the United States.

-On this day in 1950, the Korean War began.

-In 1949, Long-Haired Hare, starring Bugs Bunny, was released in theaters.

-In 524, the Franks defeated the Burgundians in some battle.

History is fun, isn’t it? Here’s some Doomtree.
