National Popcorn Day

19 Jan


Journalist Rocky the Squirrel here –

“Keeping my paws on the nuts of the world!”



Today, January 19th, is a great day.  It is National Popcorn Day.  This is a wonderful day that we can all enjoy and nip our teeth into – literally.  I know my kind loves corn and I know that little piglet in the Hotel Thompson loves the popped corn.  Some people believe that the origin of this day is somehow connected to the Super Bowl.  I guess it kind of makes sense since they’re all kinds of bowl games on right now.  I know Bacon’s daddy is in football heaven.  

Let me tell you story about Bacon and his love of popcorn.  That little oinker can be all the way in his bedroom playing around and watching his television.  But the moment that he hears the corn kernels hitting the pan in the kitchen, he totally loses it and runs through the hallways skidding into the kitchen.  He will sit on the floor in the middle of the kitchen and watch his mommy as she pops the corn over the stove – you know old fashioned like.  When it starts to pop-pop-pop, he always walks over and hits his mom in the ankles with his snout wanting some.  He knows he’s going to get some but he doesn’t have a lot of patience that little guy.  And then when he does get some, he sounds like a little chomping machine.  He’s a hoot.       

Enjoy the day my friends.  I’ll be back soon!
