Every year on August 11th is celebrated as the National Presidential Joke Day in the USA. It is not the day where jokes about presidents are made, they are referred throughout the remainder 364 days of the year. The jokes that presidents of the United States have made are being commemorated every year on August 11th, and that is because of a joke Ronald Reagan made on August 11th, 1984.
President Reagan spoke to the microphone in front of him as an acoustic test seconds away to the weekly radio speech; ‘‘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’’. Reagan thought that the joke his making to test the microphone was meant to be heard only by the people in that room and the technical team, however, the microphone was on the air and the whole of America heard what he had said.
The Soviets, who had not thought these words could be a joke as a first possibility due to the Cold War, and consequently, they got martial alarmed. A short-term global nuclear panic occurred until these words were cracked up as a joke. From that day on, every 11th day of August is celebrating as National Presidential Joke Day attributing to this ‘Reagan’ joke.
