August 11th Presidential Joke Day

I know, I know… recently it seems like all of our Presidents are a joke but today is about Presidents that have made jokes, or at least sort of anyway. It seems it all started back on August 11th, 1984 when President Ronald Reagan was preparing to make a speech on radio and did not realize that his microphone was live and he told the American people that he had just declared war on Russia and that bombing was going to begin immediately. Of course it was a joke, never meant to be heard, but it was. I have to wonder what people who took that seriously thought at the time.

How to celebrate – Find Presidential goofs and listen to them or read about them. Realize even Presidents are people. Determine which President you feel had the best sense of humor.
