When : August 11th
Presidential Joke Day - presidents have a sense of humor, too. Many people believe this is a day to make jokes about the president. On the contrary, this day is for presidents to make a joke. On this day in 1984, President Ronald Reagan made a doozie.
On August 11, 1984, just before his regular Saturday radio address, President Ronald Reagan was doing a voice test with the microphone. He thought the microphone and the feed was not live. He joked into the microphone: ""My fellow Americans, I am pleased to tell you I just signed legislation which outlaws Russia forever. The bombing begins in five minutes."" To his surprise, he was speaking to a live feed!
This incident led to the creation of ""Presidential Joke Day"". However, we do not think American presidents will make it a habit to perform jokes on, or to, the American public on this day, or any other.
