Happy Birthday Mr. President?


We think not! George Washington’s birthday is actually on February 22nd but thanks to some decisions by the people in charge, we will probably never celebrate the man’s actual birthday on the right day. Mike Duncan and Rumpus illustrator Jason Novak talk about the misplaced birthday of George Washington and the birth of a three day weekend (with puppets!) over at The Morning News.
