This morning on twitter I learned something very important: namely that today is National Fried Chicken Day. I bet you didn’t know there was a National Fried Chicken Day, did you? Or that Thursday is National Sugar Cookie Day, followed by National Pina Colada Day (now that’s a day I can get behind). Yep, it turns out that every single day is dedicated to, among other things I’m sure, a niche food. Months too. Not surprisingly, July is the month of Baked Beans, Grilling and Hot Dogs. What is with this — why do Americans feel the need to make everything into a day? Feel free to pitch in your thoughts while I go talk to a bucket of Popeyes about this.
