Eat an Extra Dessert Day

September 4 is Eat an Extra Dessert Day, a day that encourages people to treat their sweet tooth with a second (or well, even a third) helping of dessert.

It is unclear who created this awesome but unofficial holiday, but we think that whoever it was, deserves a big slice of cake after a huge bowl of ice cream!

Ends the Meal

Desserts are usually a sweet course served after the end of a meal. While in the past typically this meal took place at the end of the day, in modern times desserts can accompany a mid-day meal as well. Desserts are also known as sweets in many parts of the world.

This sweet holiday is also called National Eat an Extra Dessert Day in the in the United States.

How to Celebrate?

  • Guiltlessly indulge yourself in a little extra dessert on this day and inform everyone you know about this happy holiday. We are convinced that it will soon become everyone's favorite made-up holiday!
  • Spend some time in the kitchen whipping up some delicious desserts to share with your friends, family and co-workers.
  • Have a dessert party! Ask guests to bring their favorite dessert to share and spend the evening enjoying the desserts. Make sure you are all equipped with healthy food for the sugar crash afterwards!

Did You Know…

…that the word dessert comes from the French word desservir, which means to clear the table?

The bartender asks the guy sitting at the bar, “what’ll you have?”

The guy answers, “A scotch, please.”
 

The bartender hands him the drink, and says, “That’ll be $10,” to which the guy replies, “What are you talking about? I don’t owe you anything for this.”
 

A lawyer, sitting nearby and overhearing the conversation, then says to the bartender, “You know, he’s got you there. In the original offer, which constitutes a binding contract upon acceptance, there was no stipulation of remuneration.”
 

The bartender was not impressed, but says to the guy, “Okay, you beat me for a drink. But don’t ever let me catch you in here again.”
 

The next day, the same guy walks into the bar. The bartender says, “What the heck are you doing in here? I can’t believe you’ve got the audacity to come back!”
 

The guy says, “What are you talking about? I’ve never been in this place in my life!”

The bartender replies, “I’m very sorry, but this is uncanny. You must have a double.”
 

To which the guy replies, “Thank you. Make it a scotch.”

Finding a woman sobbing that she had locked her keys in her car, a passing soldier assures her that he can help.

She looks on amazed as he removes his trousers, rolls them into a tight ball and rubs them against the car door. Magically it opens.

“That’s so clever,” the woman gasps. “How did you do it?”

“Easy,” replies the man. “These are khakis”.

An old, tired-looking dog wandered into my garden one afternoon. I could tell from his collar and well-fed belly that he was well looked after. I gave him a few pats on the head and he followed me into my house, slowly walked down the hall, curled up in the corner and fell asleep. An hour later, he went to the door and I let him out.

The next day he was back. He resumed his spot in the hall and again slept for about an hour. This continued for several weeks.

Curious, I pinned a note to his collar: “I’d like to find out who the owner of this wonderful dog is, and ask if you’re aware that almost every afternoon he comes to my house for a nap.”

The next day he arrived for his nap with a different note pinned to his collar.

“He lives in a home with six children,” it read. “Two are under the age of three and he’s trying to catch up on his sleep. Can I come with him tomorrow?”

An Elevator Romance

I was alone in an elevator when a girl stepped in with a phone pressed to her ear.
 
“I have to go,” she told the person on the other end. “There’s 
a cute guy standing here.”
 
Before 
I could react, she turned to me and said,
“Sorry for lying. I just wanted to end that conversation.”

I asked a kid "what is love?". He answered: "love is when a puppy licks your face". I laughed before he added "even when you left him alone all day".
