Fast Food Day

Head out to your closest fast food restaurant and indulge in your favorite fast food on November 16 because it is Fast Food Day.

Fast food, also known as junk food, is a type of cuisine that can be prepared, served and consumed quickly. Usually, the term is reserved for food served outside the home in restaurants or street-side eateries.

Quick and Cheap

Food historians believe that the modern day version of fast food, the kind all of us are familiar with today, was first popularized in the United States in the early 20th century. The burger chain White Castle, which first opened its doors in 1921 in Whichita, Kansas, is credited for paving the path for modern day fast food chains.

Fast food has always been a part of urban human history. In the old days, fast food was a quick way for travelers and workers to get their quickly and cheaply meals. Despite this, food sold by vendors and at roadside kiosks had a dubious reputation - in many cultures eating outside the home was seen as an uncultured and undesirable act. Today, however fast food has become an acceptable and often times necessary part of mainstream urban life.

How to Celebrate?

  • Have fast food for all your meals today.
  • Make your own fast food at home – it will be healthier, nutritious and cheaper!

Did you Know…

…that according to many business sources, fast food giant McDonalds sells 75 hamburgers every second around the world?


Use Less Stuff Day

The Thursday before Thanksgiving day is Use Less Stuff Day.

In anticipation of some of the year's biggest and busiest shopping days in the United States - Black Friday and Cyber Monday, the unofficial holiday encourages people to buy and use fewer things in order to reduce environmental waste and lower their energy use.

25% More Trash

The holiday was created as a response to the huge amounts of trash created by people around the U.S. during the holiday season that begins with Thanksgiving day and ends with New Year celebrations. Some estimates show that trash production in the U.S. increases by 25% during the winter holiday season. This means that American families generate about 4 to 5 million ton of extra waste in just a matter of a month!

Friday after U.S. Thanksgiving is Buy Nothing Day.

How to Celebrate?

Celebrating Use Less Stuff Day is easy - just reduce, reuse and recycle. Here are some more ways to make your holiday season a green holiday season:

  • Make a conscious decision to reduce your consumption during the holidays. Instead of buying physical gifts, give them your time. Volunteer to babysit or help a friend with house improvement projects.
  • Have a friend who likes movies or the theater? Buy them tickets to go watch a film or a play as a holiday gift.
  • Give a donation in your friend's or family member's name to their favorite charitable organization.
  • Hand make gifts and wrap them in re-usable or biodegradable packaging.
  • Send electronic greeting cards instead of paper holiday cards to your family and friends.
  • Host a garage or yard sale and get rid of all the things you have not used in the past few months.

Did You Know…

…that about 38,000 miles of ribbon is used and discarded around the holidays every year? This is enough ribbon to tie a bow around the Earth!






A husband suspected his wife was cheating on him. He explained his situation to a pet shop owner who replied, "I have a parrot that will let you know daily what goes on in your house. The bird has no legs, so he holds onto his perch with his penis."

Reluctantly, the husband brought the bird home. At the end of the first day, the man asked the bird, "Did anything happen today?"

The parrot said, "Yes, the milk man came over."

The man asked, "What did he do with my wife?"

The bird said, "I don’t know; I got hard and fell."




A statue of a naked woman and a naked man stand in a park at night. Suddenly from out of nowhere, a magical genie arrives and grants the statues each one wish to be fulfilled.

Both the female and male statues agree on 15 minutes as a real man and woman in the bushes behind them to "get things done." The genie gives a knowing grin and grants the wish. The man and woman immediately jump behind the bushes and screaming sounds and laughter can be heard from their activities. 12 minutes later they return to the front of the bush again claiming they are finished.

"Well now, that was kinda quick!" the genie says. "You can do it a second time for the remaining 3 minutes if you want," the genie tells them, winking his eye.

Both the female and male look at each other and smile. The man says to the woman, "Okay great, but this time you get to hold the pigeon so I can shit on him!"




A magician worked on a cruise ship in the Caribbean. The audience would be different each week, so the magician did the same tricks each week. However, there was a problem, the captain's parrot saw the shows each week and began to understand how the magician did every trick. Once he understood, he started shouting out the secrets in the middle of the show, "Look, it's not the same hat." "Look, he is hiding the flowers under the table." "Hey, why are all the cards the Ace of Spades?"

The magician was furious but couldn't do anything, it was, after all, the captain's parrot. One day, the ship had an accident and sank. The magician found himself with the parrot, adrift on a piece of wood, in the middle of the ocean. They stared at each other with hatred, but did not utter a word. This went on for a day, then another, and another.

Finally, after a week, the parrot said, "Okay, I give up. Where the heck is the boat?"




During orientation at Fort Sill, in Oklahoma, our first sergeant stated that if anyone lost his locker key to see him, as he kept a master key in his office.

Sure enough, a few weeks later, I lost my key. I walked into the orderly’s room and asked Sarge if 
I could borrow his master key.

“Why, certainly, young man,” he said, as he reached under his desk and handed me a large pair of bolt cutters.
