    Take the day off.

    On this day in 1870 celluloid was patented and subsequently came to be used as a cheap alternative to ivory. It's first major use was in dentures, though its highly flammable nature made smoking hazardous.

    Take the day off. Try not to spit fire.

    On this day in 1797 a certain hatter by the name of Hetherington wore a top hat. Unfortunately London was not ready for such frightening fashion and freaked the fuck out, causing a riot. Hetherington was fined 50 for disturbing the public peace.

    Take the day off. Try not to cause a stir.

    It's printed in a couple other places on the web too. As to whether or not it's totally true... I don't particularly care because it's a fun story.
