January 24: Peanut butter and beer cans

Thursday, January 24 marks the annual celebration of National Peanut Butter Day and Beer Can Appreciation Day.

We could not ascertain why beer cans, as opposed to beer bottles, for example, are singled out for tribute tomorrow. We don't suppose beer drinkers will be overly concerned; an excuse is an excuse.

On the other hand, Thursday is also Women's Healthy Weight Day and National Compliment Day. While these two observances don't dovetail easily with the first two listed, the possibilities for combining these two should be obvious to even the most clueless males.

Entirely on its own, however, is Talk Like A Grizzled Prospector Day. Some of the Usual Suspects add this to the list of observances on January 24. If you go around talking like a grizzled prospector, you too will be entirely on your own.

The Roman Emperor Caligula was assassinated by his own guards on January 24, A.D. 41.
