May 16: a fine day in history

What happened today on the 136th day of the calendar, throughout history:

In 1836 Edgar Allan Poe marries his 13-year-old cousin.

In 1866 Charles Hires invents root beer. It goes well with vodka.

In 1965 Cambell Soup introduces SpaghettiO’s to North America.

In 1984 Andy Kaufman dies. I am born the same afternoon.

I share birthdays with Nirvana-bassist Krist Novoselic, tit-shower Janet Jackson and asshole mouthpiece Tucker Carlson.

I’m going to get drunk now.
