    The oldest your mom joke was discovered on a 3,500 year old Babylonian tablet.

    It was discovered in Iraq in 1976, however since then the tablet has been lost, but the text remains preserved.

    Let’s play a little Independence Day catch up....

    Your facts of the day for June 29thand 30th, and July 1-4....

    29. The first Independence Day was celebrated on July 8th, 1776.

    30. July 4th was officially declared a holiday in 1870.

    1. But it was actually July 2nd, 1776 that America gained it independence, but it was two days later that Congress accepted Jefferson’s declaration.

    2. The printed version of the Declaration of Independence was called the Dunlap Broadside, and of the 200 made only 27 are accounted for.

    3. Only John Han**** (not the famous one) and Charles Thompson, secretary of the Congress actually signed the Declaration of Independence on July 4th, 1776.

    And your Fact of the day for today, Independence Day, July 4th...

    The first Fourth of July Hot Dog Eating Contest was held at the original Nathan’s Famous at Coney Island in 1916.
