“End of July, end of the week, end of me caring. Just post one of those day in history dealies.”
As July comes to a close, Americans are in the middle of Bar-B-Q season. Meat is being seared by greenhouse gasses and it tickles us pink at the AFFotD offices. So much so that we just use the term “tickles us pink” without a hint of irony. And we hate that phrase as much as you do. Trust us.
Sundays are for grilling. Today is Sunday. So we’re not going to waste our time writing about “things” so instead we’ll just write about American things that have happened today in history. Because we are obsessed with the past, and are haunted by things we cannot change. Those hollow eyes. They once saw, now they are blind.

“It, um, well it is…pretty nice.”
~President Barack Obama
While we in the America Fun Fact of the Day offices prefer to talk about historical American buildings that look like genitalia, there are certain buildings that define America, even if they don’t like anything funny. Well, granted, the Capital building sort of looks like a boob if you squint at it…
…but one of the most iconic buildings in America is, and always will be, The White House, the home of America’s president, and likely the origin of the term, “Papa gets swag.”
