Happy President’s Day!
I grew up and lived most of my life in the South and Midwest, where President’s Day isn’t really celebrated. I mean — the banks close, and there’s no mail…but businesses stay open, and school kids never reap any benefit from the big day.
Now that I live in the Northeast — where President’s Day gets more attention — I find that I haven’t figured out exactly how to ‘get into it.’
I’m just sad there’s no mail.
In fact, when I think of President’s Day, Kansas City cartoonist Bill Whitehead comes to mind. We worked together during my days at Hallmark Cards.
No one did a butt joke better than Bill. One of my favorite cartoons of Bill’s was “The Other Side of Mount Rushmore”…which featured the presidents bending over, their butts prominently displayed.
Bill still pens a cartoon called “Free Range” that you can enjoy online. Here’s today’s entry which is, appropriately enough, President’s Day-themed.
