September 13, 2013: SO MANY choices today! If you include the Friday the 13th-ness, there are 11 goofy holidays today. Uncle Sam Day honors one of the USA’s mascots, sporting a hipster chin beard before it was cool. I mashed him up with Mr. Peanut for National Peanut Day, since they’re both pretty dapper characters. And why not squeeze Bald is Beautiful day in there as well? Mr. P. is definitely bald. (Heck, I could have also claimed this doodle contained Celiac Awareness Day, since peanuts are gluten-free, but figured I shouldn’t press my luck.) I will also point out for the record here that a Mr. Peanut was the first costumed character I ever encountered as a child, and he scared me senseless.
