May 28th National Hamburger Day

The hamburger is an American invention, born sometime during the 19th or 20th century… no one knows for sure. Since whenever it was born it has been a favorite of American’s and one of the first things Europeans want to try when visiting America. May is also National Hamburger Month. Wimpy, from “Popeye” was always asking for a hamburger with his famous quote, “I’ll gladly pay you Tuesday, for a hamburger today.”. The character of Wimpy was based off a relative of mine who apparently knew E.C. Segar (The creator of Popeye) and was always after a hamburger. I’m not sure if I should claim this relative or not!?!

How to celebrate – Have a hamburger! Watch “Popeye”. Have a cook out featuring hamburgers and hot dogs.
