August 11 is National Presidential Joke Day! This holiday dates back to August 11, 1984. Before a radio broadcast, President Ronald Reagan performed a sound check. He said, "my fellow Americans, I’m pleased to tell you today that I’ve signed legislation that will outlaw Russia forever. We begin bombing in five minutes."
