Old School Thursday: More Crazy Saints' Names

Woohoo, it’s Hot Dog Day! And St. Theodard’s Day! He is the patron saint of cattle keepers, and also the keeper of one of those crazy saints’ names. The big question is…which is worse, St. Theodard or St. Phocas?

In other news, today is the anniversary of the death of Thomas Nuttall (1859), a naturalist and botanist who collected plants around the Chesapeake. Today is also the eighth anniversary of the first reported case of mad cow disease in an Asian animal (it happened in Japan).

And that’s about it. So…celebrate with hot dogs, just not ones made in Asia, OK?
