May 24, is National Escargot Day, Asparagus Day & Brother’s Day

Quote of the Day
“Nobody is sure how this got started. Probably a couple of French master chefs were standing around one day, and they found a snail, and one of them said: ‘I bet that if we called this something like “escargot,” tourists would eat it.’  They they had a hearty laugh, because ‘escargot’ is the French word for ‘fat crawling bag of phlegm.'”
Dave Barry’Dave Barry’s Only Travel Guide You’ll Ever Need’ (1991)
