8-11 Presidential Joke Day

Download your Presidential Joke Day Card here!
Well, it's Presidential Joke Day. Presidential Joke Day began as an attempt to humiliate our 40th president Ronald Reagan.  While doing a sound check for his weekly radio address, Reagan was fooling around and said, "My fellow Americans, I'm pleased to tell you today that I've signed legislation that will outlaw Russia forever. We begin bombing in five minutes." over an open microphone. The media, always eager to catch a Republican in a gaffe, broadcast the bit and as a result, Russian military forces went on high alert.  Reagan had to do some 'splainin' and things settled back down. Reagan, appropriately enough for the erstwhile founder of "Presidential Joke Day" joked his way out of it, thoroughly irritating the media talking heads who are not noted for having a sense of humor.

People love to make fun of the president. Some are much easier targets than others. Tell your sweetie that she presides over your heart and that ain't no joke with this Presidential Joke Day Greeting Card.

Just click on the caption below the picture of the President who could tell a joke better than any president since Abe Lincoln and it will take you to a pdf file in Google Docs. Remember, instead of printing from Google Docs, click on "File" in the upper left corner, then select "Download" and copy the file to your own computer.  Open it with Adobe PDF Reader or whatever PDF reader you use and print the card from there. For some reason Google Docs doesn't handle fonts well, even though they are supposed to be embedded in the PDF document itself.

This is a side fold card, so when it prints be sure to tell your printer it's in "landscape" format so you get it turned right. Flip it on the short side to print double-sided. This will save you a lot of time.  Have fun and tell a presidential joke today - just not in front of the media. They really have no sense of humor when it comes to jokes about this latest president.
