Today, August 11th, is the Presidential Joke Day

Presidential Joke Day? Yes, presidents have a sense of humor, too.  Many people believe this is a day to make jokes about presidents. On the contrary, this day is for presidents to make a joke. On this day in 1984, President Ronald Reagan made a doozie.

August 11, 1984 (Big Brothers Year)

Just before his regular Saturday radio address, President Ronald Reagan was doing a voice test with the microphone. He thought the microphone and the feed was not live. He joked into the microphone:

„My fellow Americans, I am pleased to tell you I just signed legislation which outlaws Russia forever. The bombing begins in five minutes.“

To his surprise, he was speaking to a live feed!

This incident led to the creation of „Presidential Joke Day“.

However, we do not think American presidents will make it a habit to perform jokes on, or to, the American public on this day, or any other.

The Origin of Presidential Joke Day: Presidential Joke day began on August 11, 1984.
